Lumineers are a special type of ultra-thin veneers by Cerinate. Just like traditional veneers, Lumineers can reshape your smile and give you that perfect smile makeover.
They can cover gaps between teeth and enhance the appearance of worn-down and discoloured teeth.
Why the dentists prefer Lumineers ?
The prime disparity is that Lumineer are made from a special patented cerinate porcelain that is very strong but much thinner than traditional veneers that constructed in laboratory . Even the lumineer called contact lenses for your teeth sometimes.
The major feature of the Lumineer is that minimum tooth preparation is needed. In other words, very thin layer of your tooth surface needs to be removed through shaving or grinding before bonding the Lumineer over your teeth. Unlike traditional veneers that may require to remove a significant amount of your tooth structure.
Lumineers are versatile so they can be placed over existing crown and bridge without replacing them. They are the perfect solution for stained, discoloured , chipped or slightly misaligned teeth.
Gum Grafting Surgery
What is gum grafting surgery? It is a procedure done by a periodontist to mitigate recession of the gums. Recession takes place when gums are pulled down over time by movement of the teeth, excessively harsh brushing, or something else, like gum disease.
The procedure involves moving flesh from elsewhere in the mouth (e.g., the roof of the mouth) to the recessed gum to plump it up around the tooth and provide a safer barrier.
