BEAUTIFUL SMILES IMPROVEMENT WITH LUMINEERS VENEERS -PORCELAIN VENEERS IN MELBOURNE
Having a smile that you are proud of and confident in can make you seem more open, warmer, and charming. A beautiful smile can be a significant asset to you, helping you with your career, your social life, and nearly any situation that may come along in life. Of course, we are not all blessed with a perfect smile, and you may feel that your smile falls short, making you less likely to show it.
Maybe you have issues with your teeth that you think are noticeable to others, like a cracked tooth, stained teeth, or a gap in your teeth. Instead of withdrawing and smiling less, there are solutions available that can help you.
Lumineers are among the most popular cosmetic treatments available today that can have a positive impact on your teeth and smile that you want. What are Lumineers?
You may not be familiar with what Lumineers are and how they can help your teeth. Lumineers provide you with a cosmetic solution for your teeth. They are very thin porcelain veneers that are designed to go over your existing teeth. The Lumineers are glued onto your existing teeth so that cracks and stains can be covered up. The result of the process will give you the shiny white teeth that you want so that your smile improves and you feel better about how it looks.
BEAUTIFUL SMILES IMPROVEMENT WITH LUMINEERS VENEERS -PORCELAIN VENEERS IN MELBOURNE Why Lumineers are Popular
What helps to make L
umineers and other areas today so popular is that they offer a less invasive alternative to porcelain veneers. With Lumineers, there is little to no tooth preparation needed, and none of your existing tooth structure will need to be removed. The Lumineers are bonded to your teeth so that you get the better look you desire. Lumineers also generally take just two office visits to be complete the process, and the treatment can cost less than choosing porcelain veneers, another reason that Lumineers are so popular today.
Lumineers provide dental solutions for the following:
Brighten Stained and Discolored Teeth and Restore Chipped Teeth Eliminate Spacing and Gaps / Align Crooked Teeth Reshape Small or Misshapen Teeth / Renew Old Dental Work Perfect Your Hollywood Smile How long will Lumineers last?
Clinical tests have proven that teeth LUMINEERS can last and look great for more than 20 years.
BEAUTIFUL SMILES IMPROVEMENT WITH LUMINEERS VENEERS -PORCELAIN VENEERS IN MELBOURNE What can I expect from my Treatment?
Lumineers offer a quick and painless way to permanently enhance your smile. In just two visits to your dentist, you can have a whiter, healthier, natural-looking smile. During the first appointment, we will take a mould of your teeth, and together you will choose the desired shade of your Lumineer veneers. On the second visit, the doctor will place your Lumineers by bonding them to your existing teeth with a special curing light. That is it! The results will speak for themselves.
What makes Lumineers different from other Veneers?
LUMINEERS ® BY CERINATE ® are porcelain tooth veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. No shaving: Your LUMINEERS dentist applies these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth with no grinding or shaving of your original teeth, transforming your teeth in a very short time LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them Contact lens-thin: They really are very thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional teeth veneers) LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discoloured or misaligned teeth. Can Lumineers be taken off if I wanted them removed?
Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure, in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.
The idea that ultra-thin veneers are “reversible” may help to create public demand for this procedure. But it seems true mostly in theory only. Yes, they can be ground off. But it’s not necessarily a quick process, nor is it likely that your tooth will be returned to its initial pristine condition.
The bond that’s been created during the placement process is very strong and the cement that’s been used typically remains stubbornly attached to the tooth’s surface.
It can be trimmed and buffed off. But that’s not necessarily an easy task, especially when a number of teeth are involved. And it has to be expected that the surface of the tooth’s enamel will be shaved and scuffed up at least somewhat during the process.
1) Difficulty in achieving a natural-looking end result
The wafer-thin veneers placed using a no-drilling protocol is often criticized because with some applications they must be made out of comparatively more-opaque porcelain or placed using relatively more-opaque cement, so they are able to adequately mask over the colour of the natural tooth structure that lies underneath.
Why is having opaque veneers a problem?
The whole issue of opaqueness has to do with how natural looking the veneered tooth will end up looking.
Tooth enamel, the part of a tooth that a veneer tries to mimic, is translucent (light is able to pass through it). And a great deal of what gives a tooth its lustrous look has to do with the way light enters into this layer and is then reflected back out.
If a veneer (or veneer/cement combination) doesn’t accurately simulate enamel’s light-handling effect (as in it’s too opaque and keeps light from entering), your tooth’s appearance won’t look quite right. It might look white, but it won’t look perfectly natural.
Since it’s so thin, to effectively mask the stained tooth structure that lies underneath the veneer must be made using relatively opaque porcelain. But due to this opaqueness, light will tend to reflect off the veneer’s front surface and not penetrate into it like it does when it strikes enamel Because of this difference in light handling, the veneer won’t look truly lifelike. 2) Potential Tooth bulkiness especially in the gumline area They may create tooth bulkiness. – No-drill (no tooth preparation) placement can easily result in bulky, over-contoured teeth.
That can make new veneers hard to get used to. It can also make the teeth they’re placed on harder to properly clean.
3. Plaque retention – Periodontal and tooth decay problems.
A primary concern is the amount of thickness added at the gum line.
The underlying problem.
If you bond a porcelain veneer directly onto the untrimmed surface of a tooth it will change the tooth’s contours, in the sense that there will now be a ledge (sometimes referred to as a “speed bump”) right where the veneer ends
Dentists formally refer to this type of change as affecting the “emergence profile” of a tooth, meaning altering its contours in the region where it exits the gums.
This type of over-contouring can: Make it more difficult to remove dental plaque at the gum line. Tend to interfere with the natural cleansing action created by a person’s lips and cheeks as they slide over a tooth’s surface.
In general, under contouring, a dental restoration typically makes a more benign error than over-contouring. And placing no-drill Lumineers® seems to break this rule of thumb.
Problems that may develop.
When dental plaque cannot be adequately removed, issues associated with tooth decay and gum disease may occur. Of the two, experiencing gum problems is the more common occurrence (persistent gingivitis, periodontal disease).
The consequences of either can be problematic to resolve. Repairing cavities frequently means that the restoration must be replaced. In extreme cases, the decay may be so extensive that just replacing the veneer may no longer be an option for the tooth. Treating gum disease can be successful. But any degree of gum recession that occurs (either triggered to the disease process or its treatment) can easily spoil the appearance of an entire set of veneers. 4. An artificial appearance
Placing restorations that create larger, fuller teeth can easily result in a look that’s artificial. In extreme cases, the term having “horse teeth” may certainly apply. Of course, the degree to which this occurs is the key. And toward keeping it to a minimum case selection is always a primary determinant.
Some people don’t care.
Despite this outcome, the convenience and comfort of being able to take advantage of no-drilling/no-shots placement may be so attractive to some people that this is an easy enough trade-off to choose. Having bigger, larger teeth is not a concern as long as they’re whiter and more perfect.
5. Problems with function
Another area of concern is how the increased size of the veneered teeth will affect the person’s daily activities.
Larger teeth can be cumbersome, affect a person’s speech, or even the way they bite into things. Fuller teeth can also change the way a person’s lips are supported by or rest over their teeth. In extreme cases it may be difficult for the person to close their lips together.
Fortunately, over time people tend to adapt to these types of difficulties. It’s just a matter of how extreme the change has been.
The total amount of treatment time that a dentist must set aside for a no-drill Lumineers® case is less than that needed for conventional veneer placement. (That’s because there’s less work to do during the 1st visit.)
But this cost-savings is at least in part offset by the fact that the dental laboratory bill for the Lumineers® will likely be greater.
How Traditional Dental Veneers differ?
Because they are thicker, conventional porcelain veneers can be made out of comparatively more-translucent porcelain, yet they are still able to mask dark tooth structure that lies underneath them.
That means the light will be able to enter into and reflect back out of them in a fashion that truly mimics the lustrous look of a natural tooth.
Also, a thicker laminate generally offers the dental technician more opportunity to incorporate characterization and shading qualities into the veneer itself by way of using different shades of porcelain in its fabrication
A lot of people simply don’t appreciate this difference.
We do have to admit that when it comes to the issue of obtaining a precisely lifelike result, many people just don’t seem to care.
The ease and pain-free advantage that no-drilling/no-shots technique offers simply outweighs the disadvantage of a less than the perfectly natural-looking outcome.
