If you want whiter, straighter teeth and a more dazzling smile, veneers may be exactly what you need. At Grove City Dental, Dr. Scott D. Schumann makes this simple and convenient form of cosmetic dentistry even more attractive by providing LUMINEERS to his patients. LUMINEERS represent a major step forward in custom-crafted, non-damaging, super-thin (yet long-lasting) dental veneers.
Beautiful “New Teeth” Without Caps
Veneers have been popular for many years, especially among celebrities and others who must maintain a high-profile lifestyle. Veneers are a sensible choice for individuals who cannot achieve the results they want through:
The porcelain shell covers only the front sides of the teeth, filling in any unevenness caused by breakage or wear. In addition to restoring the tooth’s color to the exact degree of whiteness you desire, they fit over the existing tooth’s enamel, turning cracked, uneven or impossibly stained teeth into a brilliant, natural-looking smile.
Advanced Veneer Technology
Traditional veneers are thick enough that the tooth’s enamel has to be planed down to make room for them, a procedure that not only requires anesthesia, but does permanent damage to the teeth, and sometimes leaves the teeth annoyingly sensitive. The LUMINEERS product does away with those potential pitfalls. These state-of-the-art porcelain shells employ an especially strong porcelain called Cerinate, allowing them to be made considerably thinner than their predecessors. In most cases there is no need for any damaging or painful preparatory work. The use of Cerinate also means that LUMINEERS are much stronger than traditional veneers, and with normal care they can easily last 20 years or more.
LUMISmile – “A Sneak Preview”
If you’d like a “sneak preview” of your new smile, just ask Dr. Schumann about our LUMISmile technology. This specialized software creates an accurate image of how the patient will look after having LUMINEERS applied. The process generally takes no more than 30 minutes, and you can then decide whether to proceed based on your reaction to our LUMISmile virtual makeover.
While LUMINEERS should continue to provide a beautiful smile for many years without any undue attention, it is still important for patients to practice good dental hygiene and schedule checkups twice a year. This not only allows us to diagnose and treat any signs of tooth decay or gum disease, but it also gives us a chance to make sure that the veneers are still firmly in place.
If you believe that traditional veneers or LUMINEERS could make a significant difference to your quality of life, call us at 614-808-1700 or book your appointment through our convenient online form.
