Los Angeles, CA, Aug. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Few things can build confidence the way an attractive smile can. Smiles communicate much about a person's personality, and a broad smile can be confidence-inspiring and combat a bad mood, according to smile research. Teeth that are chipped, stained and flawed may leave patients feeling self-conscious about their smiles. Los Angeles Lumineers expert, Dr. Poneh Ghasri, explains the advantages of Lumineers for correcting these flaws.
Lumineers are a special type of dental veneers that can completely rejuvenate and revitalize a patient's smile without the need for any invasive procedures or permanent alteration of the teeth involved. They can be applied in two to three short dental appointments and can last up to 20 years when properly maintained. Traditional dental veneers not only often require more dental appointments for placement, but they can also require painful shots and uncomfortable procedures. Dental enamel must be trimmed away, and this can result in post-procedure sensitivity. The enamel loss is also permanent, which means that the restoration procedure is not reversible.
Thanks to the ultra-thin, ultra-strong porcelain that is used in Lumineers, they can be placed directly over the teeth. No trimming is required, and there is no need for shots or discomfort. Lumineers are simply bonded directly over the natural tooth, which eliminates the risk of sensitivity and also allows the procedure to be reversed if necessary. After Lumineers have been applied, a patient's smile will be permanently whiter, smoother and more even. The results are natural-looking and can transform even the most damaged or flawed smiles, and they can be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth.
