Why Choose Lumineers®?

Posted .

Here at Barré Dental Care, Dr. Barton Barré is trained in the process of fitting you with dental veneers. And not just any veneers – Lumineers®. If you are considering getting dental veneers, Lumineers are your absolute best option. Here’s why:

Traditional veneers require shaving off much of your natural tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. This is hardly needed to fit a Lumineer. How is that possible? Lumineers are ultra-thin and extremely translucent, enabling them to simply replicate the look of your enamel. But don’t worry; that doesn’t mean that they are fragile. In fact, they can last twice as long as a traditional veneer – over 20 years as opposed to the average 10 of regular veneers.

Here’s what happens when we place Lumineers on your teeth. First, Dr. Barton Barré will create a precise mold of your teeth called an impression. Then together you will decide what shade of white is best for you. If you have a chip in your teeth, you will be fitted with a temporary veneer, but otherwise, you won’t need one.

When your custom Lumineers are ready, we will bring you back in for a second visit that shouldn’t last more than an hour. We will first double-check that they are the right fit and then bond them one by one. We will then check your bite to make sure they are balanced for the rest of your teeth so that you can go about your daily activities with a stress-free, gorgeous smile.
