LUMINEERS - FAQ'S
How are LUMINEERS different?
LUMINEERS are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. LUMINEERS are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of LUMINEERS allow them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.
Is the LUMINEERS procedure painful?
The LUMINEERS procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means LUMINEERS will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly and time-intensive process. Can I get LUMINEERS instead?
In most cases, yes! Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, LUMINEERS will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don't get with braces.
How long will LUMINEERS last?
Clinical testing has proven that a LUMINEERS smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years. LUMINEERS also offer a limited lifetime warranty that allows for replacement of each unit at no additional laboratory charge. Some restrictions apply.
How long does the procedure take?
The LUMINEERS process takes only 2 visits to your dentist and the placement of LUMINEERS on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.
What's involved with a LUMINEERS procedure?
On the first visit, your dentist will create a precise mold. Then you and your dentist will determine the shade of white that is right for you. After your first visit, your dentist will send the mold off to LUMINEERS Smile Design Studio for your custom LUMINEERS to be created. With LUMINEERS, you don't have to wear temporaries. When your dentist receives your custom LUMINEERS, they are checked for fit and shade. Then during our second visit, your LUMINEERS are painlessly applied without shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure. Now you're ready to start smiling out loud!
With LUMINEERS, can I still chew gum and eat my favourite sticky foods?
Drink and eat what you want with confidence because LUMINEERS are applied in the most durable way possible. However, LUMINEERS don't replace good hygiene, so you should continue to visit your dentist for your 6 month check-up and cleaning to keep your LUMINEERS looking their best and the rest of your teeth and gums healthy.
Can LUMINEERS be taken off if I want them removed?
Yes, LUMINEERS are completely reversible because there's no grinding down of healthy tooth structure in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.
How long have LUMINEERS been around?
LUMINEERS have been improving smiles for over 20 years. In fact, over 250,000 people already have LUMINEERS...of course, you'd never know because they look so perfect and natural.
