Northwest Houston, TX area dentist explains the advantages of dental Lumineers

Rejuvenating a Smile with Lumineers

Rejuvenating a smile is a common request when patients visit our practice. At Vivid Dental, in Houston, TX, we strongly believe that every patient should have the opportunity to improve the aesthetics of his or her smile. We provide both general and cosmetic services in our practice for children and adults because we believe everyone should enjoy the self-confidence that comes with a beautiful, healthy smile.


Patients in the Northwest Houston, TX area who want to improve the cosmetics of their smile may benefit from porcelain veneers or Lumineers. Both are thin porcelain restorations that are bonded over the front of natural teeth to disguise unwanted imperfections, including misalignment, staining, and breakage. However, many patients who want a fast fix without the need for temporaries can enjoy the advantages dental Lumineers can offer.


Lumineers are considerably thinner than traditional porcelain veneers. In fact, they are approximately half the thickness of conventional veneers. This allows patients to have veneers placed without the removal of tooth enamel. Patients can avoid shots and the permanent removal of some of their tooth enamel. Patients also have the ability to reverse the treatment in the future if they so desire.


Lumineers are gaining in popularity due to their conservative nature. They are also completed in just one appointment, which allows patients to avoid having temporaries placed and waiting weeks for their restorations to arrive from the ceramist.


Like conventional porcelain veneers, Lumineers are extremely effective at covering teeth in a way that is both beautiful and appropriate. Lumineers are made to match the existing natural teeth for seamless integration into the smile, and do so fast and affordably.


If you are considering the benefits of Lumineers and are ready to speak to a dental professional about the options available, contact the team at Vivid Dental today. We are excited to educate new and existing patients on how they can improve the appearance and health of their smile using restorative and general dentistry techniques in our state-of-the-art dental practice.
