A dark, chipped smile detracts from your personal appearance and self-confidence, too. To recreate your smile appearance in just two dental visits, see Dr. Robert Wyler, your dentist in Waukesha, WI. He offers exceptionally realistic and ultra-thin Lumineers, veneers that cover defects to create the smile of your dreams.

Are Lumineers veneers?

Yes, Lumineers are a special kind of porcelain veneers. These super-thin dental laminates are custom-crafted from patented Cerinate porcelain, a material that is durable and reflects light in the same way natural teeth do.

Bonded to the front of flawed teeth, Lumineers remake tooth color, shape, alignment, and more. If your teeth are slightly gapped, twisted, chipped, pitted, or otherwise marred, Lumineers can strengthen and beautify them.

Plus, unlike traditional dental veneers, Lumineers require no enamel resurfacing. In other words, Dr. Wyler simply cements them to your teeth with no drilling, sanding, or other prep work. Therefore, Lumineers are typically reversible, reports Healthline, although you will like them so much you'll want to keep them for their full 20-year lifespan.

Conditions Lumineers correct

  1. Spanning narrow gaps between teeth
  2. Correction of minor tooth twists and rotations
  3. Covering of deep, intractable enamel stains from smoking, oral trauma, or some pharmaceuticals
  4. Regularizing tooth size and shape
  5. Covering pits, craze lines, and other obvious detractors

Your dentist will review your specific case right in his Waukesha, WI, office. You'll undergo a complete oral exam to determine if your teeth and gums are healthy enough for this popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. Be sure to tell Dr. Wyler how you wish to improve your smile appearance. He'll actually show you digital representations of your finished smile.

Caring for your new smile

Lumineers are chip- and stain-resistant. However, you must avoid hard foods, such as peanut brittle, and brush and floss diligently every day. If you grind or clench your teeth, you could damage your laminates; so ask Dr. Wyler about a custom-made bite guard to protect your investment.
