At Redmyre we pride ourselves on pain free treatments, so that our patients get the best dental care and the brightest smile with the least amount of pain. We think Lumineers are a great choice when it comes to deciding on tooth veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are as the name implies, an outer cover that can be placed over teeth that have noticeable imperfections. They are designed to give a tooth a “face lift”. Created from a mould impression of the mouth they are made typically of porcelain and are bonded to the tooth’s surface. They are hence able to hide unsightly imperfections.
Specifically designed to mimic the look and lustrous appearance of teeth, the idea of veneers is to retain the patients original teeth even if they have been damaged (chipped, cracked, stained) while restoring a near natural clean appearance. Restoring damaged teeth in such a way can have a large positive impact on a patient’s self confidence and give them the ability to
continue smiling without being self-conscious.
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a specific brand of veneers, made and attached to the teeth in a slightly different manner to ordinary veneers. The advantage of Lumineers is that the method of attaching the veneer is painless and simple. No drilling, no needles, and less preparation changes are required to the original teeth.
