If you are looking for a way to improve your smile, Lumineers® may be a perfect option for you. They can be used to correct chipped, discolored and even moderately crooked teeth. Today, we would like to briefly explain how these can work and what they could do to improve your smile.

If you have stained or discolored teeth, you may have considered getting teeth whitening treatments. However, some stains could be difficult to remove, and whitening treatments may not last long depending on your lifestyle habits. Lumineers, on the other hand, could provide you with a beautiful white smile that may be long-lasting regardless of what you eat or drink.

For teeth that have gaps or are crooked Lumineers may be an alternative to traditional braces that you might consider. Instead of spending months in treatment, and having to go to countless appointments for adjustments, you could have a corrected smile in just two short visits. They can also work to correct misshapen teeth or be placed on top of crowns or other dental work to restore your smile and could do so without removing any of the tooth’s natural structure.

After your first consultation, Dr. Colton Rich may take an impression of your smile so that your custom Lumineers can be created. They are designed to be extremely thin and may even be roughly as thin as a contact lens, which might be why we may not need to remove as much of your enamel for them. When they are ready, you can try them on one at a time to ensure that the fit is right before our dentist may bond them into place.

If you have questions about Lumineers in Orem, Utah, you can call Frandsen Dental at 801-224-7900 to schedule your consultation. We’d be happy to help you understand what they could do for your smile.
