Lumineers Dental Veneers in Sharon, MA
Cosmetic Enhancement, No Enamel Removal Required
A straight, sparkling smile is always a good investment, because it helps you look and feel attractive, potentially improving your social interactions and quality of life. For many patients, porcelain veneers offer a quick way to get the smile of their dreams. However, you may not want to undergo a procedure that requires your enamel be sculpted to accommodate your restorations.
If you’re interested in getting your dream smile but would rather not have to undergo enamel removal, then Dr. Agamov has a solution. At our Sharon, MA office, we can enhance your smile with Lumineers® dental veneers. Dr. Agamov happily offers her professional care to patients from Sharon and surrounding areas including Stoughton, Foxborough, and Canton, MA. Keep reading to learn more.
What Are Lumineers Dental Veneers?
Lumineers dental veneers are dental restorations first created by the DenMat company, headed by Santa Maria dentist Robert Ibsen. Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers as they’re also thin shells that are fitted over your teeth to enhance their appearance. However, Lumineers are made of Cerinate porcelain, pressed into an extremely thin form no thicker than .3mm. The texture of Lumineers is more akin to a contact lens than a rigid porcelain shell.
The ultra-thin width and smoothness of Cerinate porcelain allows them to look even more natural and adhere to the surface of your teeth without the need for your dentist to sculpt your enamel. The lack of enamel removal keeps our patients comfortable, eliminating sensitivity before and after the Lumineers are placed. What’s more, these easy to apply alternatives are more affordable than porcelain veneers. Their semi-permanent nature also makes them easy to remove without damaging your smile.
The Lumineers Process
Lumineers dental veneers can be quickly and easily installed at our Sharon, Ma office by Dr. Agamov. Here’s what to expect:
Before receiving your Lumineers, Dr. Agamov will have you undergo an initial consultation where your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth, review your medical history, and ask you about your smile goals. The information your dentist gathers will allow them to determine if smile enhancement with lumineers is right for you.
Designing Your Lumineers Dental Veneers
Once you and your dentist have both decided that Lumineers are right for you, we’ll help you pick the shade of white for your Lumineers that best matches your smile. Then we’ll take images and impressions of your teeth. These will be sent to an offsite laboratory, where they’ll serve as the basis for your custom restorations.
Applying Your Lumineers Dental Veneers
When your custom Lumineers are ready, we’ll have you return to our Sharon, MA office. Dr. Agamov will show you your new Lumineers and make sure they’re to your liking. Once you’ve approved them, we’ll clean your teeth to ensure they have a smooth, sanitary surface to adhere to.
Then, your dentist will apply a specific kind of dental Tenure®, a bonding agent in the multi-stage bonding process, to the fronts of your teeth. She’ll also apply an additional bonding agent to the backs of your Lumineers. Your Lumineers will be placed over the proper teeth. Once your Lumineers are comfortably in place, you’ll be free to enjoy your new, beautiful smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Lumineers are built to last for an average of ten years, but they can last more or less time depending on your level of oral hygiene and how well you keep up with your monthly visits with your dentist. Be sure to practice an effective dental routine and see your dentist at least once every six months so they can help you maintain your oral health as well as your restorations.
Lumineers usually cost less than veneers, but the exact cost of your Lumineers will depend on multiple factors including how many you need and your insurance. Dr. Agamov and our team encourage you to call your provider beforehand and ask them which costs they can cover. If you find that you still need help covering the cost of your procedure, don’t worry! We offer our patients various financing options including third-party financing through CareCredit.
It usually takes less than an hour or two to apply a full set of Lumineers. Dr. Agamov will likely test the fit of every Veneer on a plaster model of your teeth before placing them. This time frame can vary based on how many veneers you’re receiving, but your dentist can give you a more accurate estimate before the placement begins.
