Lumineers in Wylie, TX

About Dental Lumineers

Are you looking to upgrade your smile? If that is the case, Trusted Dental Care in Wylie, TX might be the place to start, thanks to the gold standard in dental veneers known as Lumineers. While there are many commonalities between dental Lumineers and traditional porcelain veneers, there are also some significant differences that set them apart. Measuring in at about 0.2 mm, Lumineers are incredibly thin restorations that cover the front surfaces of teeth to mask an array of cosmetic concerns. Conventional veneers are generally thicker, which requires your enamel to be slightly reduced to allow for adequate space and placement. Lumineers are more translucent than most other veneers, so they appear more natural while remaining durable enough to last over two decades, on average. As a leading general dentist, Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot is delighted to bring the advanced option of Lumineers to the smiles of Wylie, TX patients.

Are Lumineers Right for You?

Lumineers are typically a noninvasive, no-grind cosmetic dentistry treatment. If you have stained, chipped, slightly gapped, misshapen, or uneven teeth, then you may be a good candidate for dental Lumineers. During your consultation at Trusted Dental Care, Dr. G. will determine whether your teeth are healthy and cavity-free. Since Lumineers do not replace your teeth but rather cover the front surfaces to mask imperfections, the underlying tooth structure supporting teeth must in good condition and your bite should be well-aligned. Even though Lumineers are commonly called “instant orthodontics,” they cannot repair bite issues. Therefore, if you have a serious over/underbite, conventional braces or Invisalign® could be a more ideal solution for now. Individuals with bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) may not be suited for Lumineers.

What To Expect

At your consult, Dr. G. will take an impression of your teeth to be sent to the Lumineers laboratory, where your cosmetic restorations will be made. We will work with you to select the color that best matches your surrounding enamel while helping to fulfill your cosmetic expectations. As there is usually no need to file or grind your teeth to attach your dental Lumineers, you will not have to wear temporaries while you wait for your restorations to be created. When your Lumineers are ready, we will have you return to Trusted Dental Care and apply them to your teeth during a comfortable procedure. This high-tech bonding process can deliver exceptional results for your smile while leaving your underlying tooth structure intact.

Following Lumineers Placement

Since Lumineers are customized for your mouth, there is generally no adjustment period after your restorations have been placed. You will be able to eat and drink what you like with assurance since Lumineers are bonded in such a durable manner and resistant to staining. However, it is still imperative that you do not bite down too hard on items such as ice, pens, or hard candies. Lumineers are cared for just like your natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing and regularly scheduled visits to Trusted Dental Care.

Insurance Coverage

Lumineers are considered an elective treatment and are generally not covered by dental insurance providers. Trusted Dental Care does accept a range of flexible payment options, like medical financing, to help make your cosmetic Lumineers more affordable. During the consult, Dr. G. will customize your treatment plan to fit your expectations. Our knowledgeable team will then go over your estimated cost and help you explore your payment choices.
