Lumineers An Overview

Medservice image

For patients looking to correct cosmetic flaws in their smile, Luminneers offer a unique semi-permanent solution. Lumineers are a reversible treatment that provides similar results as permanent porcelain veneers. Lumineers require less tooth preparation helping to maintain the integrity of the tooth structure. Lumineers are an ideal cosmetic solution for patients not ready to commit to dental veneers.

Dr. Ahrabi will provide natural and functional results using Lumineers. Lumineers are made from ultra thin ceramic and require a skilled dentist for optimal results. A highly trained cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ahrabi has an eye for facial aesthetics and can help a patient achieve a balanced and aesthetic smile.

Lumineers address a range of cosmetic dental issues:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth

  • Discolored Teeth

  • Gaps in between teeth

Lumineers can be used to treat cosmetic blemishes affecting the appearance of the smile. Lumineers are designed to improve the overall aesthetic of the smile. Patients who choose Lumineers often feel more confident in their smiles and enjoy a better quality of life.

Lumineers What to Expect

Dr. Ahrabi can complete the Lumineer procedure in as few as two visits to our Oakton dentist office after your initial consultation. During your initial consultation, Dr. Ahrabi will give patients a thorough dental exam and discuss their dental concerns and cosmetic goals to determine if Lumineers are the best treatment option. If patients choose Lumineers, a subsequent appointment will be scheduled to begin treatment.

Lumineers offer instant results and can last for many years with proper oral hygiene.

After your initial consultation, Dr. Arhabi will take dental impressions of the teeth. Dr. Ahrabi sends the custom molds to a dental lab for fabrication. In contrast to traditional porcelain veneers, teeth typically require much less preparation. Made of an ultra thin ceramic, Lumineers do not require as much enamel removal, making them reversible if needed in the future.

On your next visit, the Lumineers will be finalized and then bonded to the teeth. Dr. Ahrabi will fit the Lumineers before bonding so that you can be sure you are satisfied with the shape, size, and color. Dr. Ahrabi will check the function of the bite to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. Once you and Dr. Ahrabi are satisfied with the Lumineers, he will adhere the Lumineers to the prepared teeth.
