A smile can be a source of great pride or terrible embarrassment. Stained or crooked teeth often push people to hide their smiles, but there is always a way to fix these issues. There are quality dentists in Scranton, PA
who offer cosmetic dentistry. Hazzouri Dental offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that focus on solving the problems that make people want to hide their teeth. Unfortunately, some cosmetic techniques are painful and time consuming. Luckily, Lumineers were designed to afford people a beautiful smile without all of the trouble associated with traditional porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers have been used for years to cover up existing teeth. They are commonly used to hide chipped or misshaped teeth. Veneers have even been known to help correct teeth that are a bit crooked or spaced apart, which means that a lot of people can avoid the pain and hassle associated with most braces. Porcelain veneers will stay white for years. In addition, many people choose veneers so they do not have to continually whiten their teeth. There are many benefits that porcelain veneers offer, but Lumineers are a specific brand of porcelain veneers that stands above the rest.
Traditional porcelain veneers are thick teeth coverings. In many cases a dentist has to grind off part of a patient’s real teeth in order to install traditional veneers. This process takes a lot of time and can cause patients substantial pain. Lumineers are about as thin as a contact lens, so they slide over existing teeth with little or no scraping. Lumineers are strong enough and are attached securely enough that they can last for more than twenty years. Most importantly, Lumineers can be installed in just two easy trips to a dentist.
Getting Lumineers takes just two trips to a dentist. On the first visit, a mold of the patient’s mouth will be taken, and the dentist and patient will determine the exact color of Lumineers that is ideal. The mold is then sent away so that custom Lumineers can be crafted to perfectly match the patient’s smile. Once the Lumineers are received by the dentist, the patient comes back in to have them attached. Because Lumineers and thin and are custom made for each patient, little to no grinding of existing teeth is required to install these veneers. A strong dental adhesive is used to attach the Lumineers, which keeps them in place even when faced with gum and other sticky foods. This simple installation process means that no pain shot or medication will be needed. The use of adhesives also means that Lumineers can be removed in the future, if necessary. Even though Lumineers last for over twenty years, wearers should still visit their dentist on a regular basis.
Most importantly, Lumineers have been around for more than two decades. Over 250,000 people have tried and loved Lumineers, and more than 13,000 dentists across the country recommend these particular porcelain veneers, including dentists in Scranton, PA. Hazzouri Dental, a cosmetic and family dental office which has been in practice since 1949, offers Lumineers. Remember, with Lumineers there is nothing to lose, but there is a beautiful smile to be gained.
