Porcelain veneers/Lumineers can give you the smile you always wanted with no drilling and no pain. They have been proven to last for 20+ years.

There is now a new product on the market that is very similar to Lumineers called LumTray Technology. This new technology saves you hours of sitting in the dental chair. Your dentist can put your Lumineers in more quickly, usually in about two visits.

Lumineers are great for stained teeth, teeth with spaces in between them or slightly crooked teeth. At your first visit, an impression is made of your teeth and then sent out so your Lumineers can be crafted. At the next visit, the dentist sees if the Lumineers fit. Then he etches the teeth so they can receive the porcelain veneers/Lumineers. They are then bonded to the teeth and set with special glue and a special light. The whole procedure is pain free, before, during and after. In traditional veneer placement, pain-killing shots must be given to numb the areas and then teeth are shaved down into small points with a drill before they can have the traditional veneers put on. The period afterwards is also sometimes painful when traditional veneers are put on because the teeth have been shaved down.

Porcelain veneers/Lumineer veneers cost about the same as having porcelain veneers put on your teeth. This would be about $700.00 to $1,100 per veneer. Not all dentists know how to put the veneers on teeth. Many dentists prefer the thicker porcelain type because they feel that the thicker veneers gives a more lifelike appearance while the thinner Lumineers only provide a masking effect on the teeth.

Porcelain veneers/Lumineers are a reversible procedure. Lumineers as previously stated are applied with a no drilling technique so the process is reversible. They can be removed and the original teeth can be returned to their original form. The bond between the teeth and veneer is so strong though that the dentist will have to grind them off.

A company called Den-Mat located in Santa Maria, California makes Lumineers. They are not very different from other brands on the market except that they are a lot stronger than most other brands. This allows them to be made thinner, down to 0.3 millimeters.

Whether or not you get Lumineers is really up to you. It will give you the most stunning smile possible. Make sure you have them done only be an expert cosmetic dentist who is Lumineer certified. Make sure also, they are on Den-Mats referral list. A dentist becomes certified by attending a two-day course. This does not make them a cosmetic dentist, just certified to place Lumineers. Unless you have teeth with many gaps or are more than slightly crooked, you should not end up with a bulky looking appearance. What you should end up with is a natural looking smile with gorgeous teeth.

Union Dental - Experts in Cosmetic Dentristry: While almost everyone is familiar with your traditional dentistry that focuses on cleansing the teeth and gums as well as taking care of problems such as cavities, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving your looks and smile. There is an increase in cosmetic dentistry today due to many factors. If you are not familiar with all the different methods and techniques that are used in cosmetic dentistry, here is a guide on what you can come to expect for those who are interested.

Traditional dentistry involves treatments that are usually necessary but cosmetic dentistry involves procedures that the patient elects to have done because it will benefit their appearance. If you are uncomfortable with your smile, the look of your mouth or if you feel your teeth are discolored cosmetic dentistry may be right for you. There are certain cases where cosmetic dentistry can be as beneficial as traditional dentistry. For example if one has a cavity instead of getting a filling that will leave their teeth looking dark or uneven they can choose special fillings that are made out of different materials that can match the color of your tooth or teeth almost exactly. This helps draw attention away from your fillings and brings it back to your face or smile. If you have older fillings you can choose to get them taken out and get the more natural looking fillings put in their place if you are more comfortable.

Cosmetic dentistry uses a wide variety of methods and technologies such as the use of laser treatments which are more convenient for both the dentist and the patient involved. These treatments provide a wide range of procedures. Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry procedure that is done these days. Many dentists now provide this service to a wide variety of patients. Many people find their teeth are discolored due to years of drinking coffee, tea or from smoking. Teeth whitening is the perfect way to get a whiter and brighter smile.

Another form of cosmetic dentistry in Pensacola that is often used involves correcting broken or chipped teeth. This procedure is called composite bonding. Composite bonding takes a combination of materials that are molded to look like the real tooth then hardened for durability. This type of procedure can really help a person who has been self conscious due to their teeth being broke or chipped.

For those who are looking for a full mouth makeover you can opt to get a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures done. This is called a smile makeover. These procedures are meant for those who have serious damage to their teeth or have severe discoloration. Most get teeth whitening plus other procedures such as dental implants. Dental implants are replacements of tooth roots that take the place of missing teeth. People who are missing teeth often look older so this full mouth makeover can take years off their look and restore their smile.

For those who are interested in cosmetic dentistry they will be happy to find it is now not only more readily available but there are also more finance options available for it. Cosmetic surgery cannot only help your smile but it can also boost your self esteem and help change your life for the better so call your Pensacola dentist today.
