You’re tired of seeing chips, cracks, and stains on your teeth, but you don’t want to undergo an invasive cosmetic procedure like veneers or dental crowns. What can you do? You may not realize this, but Lumineers are similar to veneers but instead of altering the enamel of your teeth, they require little-to-no preparation and are completely reversible! If you’re ready to make a change to your smile’s appearance, here are 4 unique benefits that come with choosing Lumineers.
They Require Virtually No Recovery Time
Because these customized restorations are reversible and require only a slight etching of your tooth enamel, there is no need to spend days recovering at home. Instead, you can immediately begin to enjoy your new smile.
The Process is Reversible
Instead of moving forward with a permanent cosmetic dental treatment that requires significant upkeep and replacement after 10 years or so, Lumineers are reversible. This means if at any point you decide this type of treatment is no longer what you want, you can have them removed without compromising your natural teeth. This particular benefit is extremely attractive to individuals who do not want to commit to one particular cosmetic solution for a lifetime.
They’re Better Than Getting Braces
If you have a minor alignment issue or a small gap between your teeth, Lumineers are a great way to cover the problem area without spending years in treatment or thousands upon thousands of dollars. Once braces are removed, they can often leave slight discoloration on your natural teeth. With Lumineers, this is not the case, as they will not only keep your teeth looking bright, but they’ll help you to see a complete, aesthetically pleasing smile without the need for metal brackets and wires.
They’re More Affordable Than Veneers
Apart from the fact they are reversible, one of the other, more appealing benefits of Lumineers is they are often more affordable. Of course, every patient and case is different, so until you get in to see your cosmetic dentist for a consultation, they’ll be unable to provide a thorough estimate. However, it is important to note that Lumineers are considered “cosmetic,” which means your dental insurance is unlikely to cover any of the treatment costs. The good news is that your dentist may provide alternative ways to pay, such as flexible financing through CareCredit or Compassionate Finance, or you may be eligible to enroll in DentPlus Dental Benefits that offers discounts on cosmetic treatments for a low monthly rate.
If you want to change what you see when you look in the mirror each morning, it’s time to consider Lumineers. With these thin and durable restorations, you can enjoy a new and improved smile in no time at all.
