Dentist in Fremont, CA discusses Lumineers
Imperfections of the smile can have a negative impact on the overall appearance. Patients may feel as though they have no options for enhancement available to them. Thankfully, there are many ways in which a cosmetic dentist in the Fremont, California area can address these problem areas.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the dedicated team at StarBrite Dental have a variety of aesthetic choices for patients, which may include porcelain veneers. Veneers are made of ceramic and are fabricated as a facing that is bonded over the front of teeth to cover problems including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Chips and cracks
- Stubborn, permanent stains
While porcelain veneers are effective, some patients may enjoy the benefits of Lumineers. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala uses Lumineers by Cerinate Smile Design Studios. These veneers are made of a patented porcelain technology to ensure high quality long-lasting solutions. In fact, many of our Cerinate Lumineers last over two decades – much longer than traditional porcelain veneers. Many patients invest in Lumineers to avoid the need for replacement after several years.
Another benefit of Lumineers is the thin facings require minimal removal of natural tooth enamel. Some patients are able to have their Lumineers placed without preparation, meaning their treatment is reversible if they decide to later change their mind.
Placement of Lumineers is done within two appointments. The first appointment is for the preparation of the teeth, if needed, and then impressions. These impressions are used by the Den-Mat Corporation to fabricate the new Lumineers. Lumineers are made to match the color, shape, and size of the existing teeth for seamless integration. The second appointment is the bonding of these restorations in place, allowing patients to leave the practice with a brand new lease on life with a rejuvenated smile!
