How can Lumineers help you? Talk with your South East London dentist.

06 / 08 / 2012

Veneers, traditionally made of porcelain, have been around for a long time. Veneers are placed over the front of your teeth to straighten, restore a bright white colour, and protect the surface of the teeth from further damage. They procedure has been shown to be very effective for both medical and cosmetic purposes. The procedure involves the removal of a thin layer of enamel from the teeth before the veneers can be bonded to the surface. Unfortunately this means that the process is irreversible. Although veneers can be replaced when necessary, the underlying tooth cannot be restored to its original state.

But new developments in veneers have created Lumineers, although they are still made of porcelain they are a patented cerinate porcelain which is much stronger than traditional variants. With the increased strength it is possible to make the veneers thinner than ever, making application and care much easier. With Lumineers it is no longer necessary to remove any enamel from the original tooth. Your teeth will stay in their natural state. The thinness of the Lumineers means that they can be placed directly on to the surface of the tooth without causing any irritation or noticeable change in the shape or size of the tooth.

Modern dentistry has a huge array of options when it comes to straigten, whitening and protecting your teeth. Since every person’s teeth are unique you should speak to your South East London dentist about whether Lumineers are the right option for you.
