In an age when television shows like “The Swan” are all the rage and folks seem to be doing just about anything to enhance their appearance, cosmetic procedures are becoming more advanced and, in the case of dentistry, less painful.
If you dream of having the perfect smile but the thought of having veneers applied to your teeth makes you wince in pain, you’ll be happy to know there is a new, pain-free alternative to help you get fantastic-looking teeth.
This new dental discovery is called Lumineers by Cerinate. Described as “smile shapers,” Lumineers are ultra-thin, super translucent porcelain that is non-invasively applied to teeth for a natural-looking smile that fits every individual. Anyone with “needle phobia” can breathe easy; Lumineers, which can only be made from Cerinate porcelain, can be applied without the use of anesthesia, so no shots are required.
But how does the Lumineers brand differ from the traditional porcelain veneers that dentists have been using for years? Typically, most veneers require that your dentist grind down sensitive tooth structure for a good fit. Not so with Lumineers, as there is no cutting or grinding of teeth in almost all cases.
Another bonus is that this new procedure generally calls for just two visits to your dentist and no uncomfortable temps while you wait for your Lumineers to be created. There is no post-procedure discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers look and feel natural as soon as you step out of the dentist’s chair.
Lumineers can even be a more comfortable and time-saving solution for adults who are considering braces. If your bite problem isn’t severe, Lumineers will change the shape and alignment of your teeth, making them look straighter and uniform. They will also help restore and strengthen teeth and aid in preventing wear over time.
Clinically proven to last up to 20 years with no shade discoloration, Lumineers can be placed over old crowns and help rejuvenate bridgework to create a more uniform look to your smile.
So now your dream of a new smile can become a reality – without any of the nightmare pain. And that’s really something to smile about.
