Are LUMINEERS® Right For You?
Porcelain veneers serve as instant orthodontics by addressing a wide range of cosmetic dental issues in just two visits to our Jersey City, NJ. For patients who wish to avoid having their teeth prepped for traditional porcelain veneers or minimal-prep veneers, we offer LUMINEERS®. This unique treatment covers the front of your anterior teeth with ultra-thin porcelain shells. If you are looking for a trusted dental practice to restore your smile, Jersey City Dental has been serving patients throughout New Jersey for 60 years.
Am I a Candidate for LUMINEERS?
Before your first appointment to place LUMINEERS, one of our dentists will establish if you are a good candidate for treatment. If you are embarrassed by certain aesthetic elements of your smile, LUMINEERS may be a great cosmetic dentistry treatment option for you. The restoration can address:
- Dental wear (resulting from bruxism or teeth grinding)
- Gaps between teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Minor misalignment (crooked or overlapping teeth)
- Small teeth
- Misshaped teeth
Patients who wish to have LUMINEERS placed should have healthy tooth enamel. Candidates should also be in good oral health and free from tooth decay. Gum disease and other oral health problems can deteriorate the underlying bone once LUMINEERS are placed.
The Benefits of LUMINEERS
LUMINEERS can correct a wide range of cosmetic problems, adding beauty and symmetry to your smile. Patients who undergo this procedure at our office can benefit from a quick, non-invasive treatment that is fully reversible. LUMINEERS allow your natural tooth structure to remain intact and the results are long-lasting. Veneers can last up to 20 years with proper care and regular dental visits. While traditional orthodontics can require years of treatment, LUMINEERS can be placed within weeks of your initial visit to our Jersey City office.
How Are LUMINEERS Placed?
LUMINEERS can typically be placed in just two visits to our office. During your first visit, one of our dentists will explain the process in detail. Impressions will be taken of your teeth, and a shade will be chosen based on your cosmetic goals. The impressions will then be forwarded to a trusted laboratory for fabrication. This process generally takes two to four weeks. Unlike traditional veneers, there is no need for the doctor to remove a small layer of enamel, and temporary veneers are not necessary.
LUMINEERS® can correct a wide range of cosmetic problems, adding beauty and symmetry to your smile.
Once your LUMINEERS arrive at our office, a second visit will be scheduled. During this second and final visit, the restorations will be placed on the teeth. Once the ultra-thin shells are affixed using a strong bonding agent, one of our dentists will check your bite while making any necessary minor adjustments.
