what are lumineers?
Transforming your smile could be easier than you originally thought when you schedule an appointment with us at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Hamburg, PA. Lumineers are a new version of the traditional veneer that comes in a thinner size, measuring in at about 0.2 mm. Traditional veneers are usually thicker, requiring your enamel to be filed down to make space for them. Luckily, Lumineers are so paper-thin that it is not necessary to file down your teeth to finish the process. Additionally, Lumineers are more translucent than other veneers so they look more natural while remaining tough enough to hold up for years and years.

"I have to say anyone who has anxiety with going to the dentist, this is the place to go. My cleaning was absolutely amazing and I was told step by step what was going on. Liz totally rocked!! Today I had to get a cavity filled and getting a needle in my mouth didn’t sit easy with me. Dr. Dando was amazing and I didn’t even feel the needle!! Definitely coming back for more cleanings and hopefully no more fillings but I know they will take care of me if I do."- F.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2023

who is a good candidate for thin veneers?
There are a variety of elements that need to be discussed before Lumineers are considered. In general, if you desire to have cosmetic flaws masked to provide a fabulous smile, you could be a good candidate for Lumineers. During your consultation at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we will determine whether your teeth are healthy and free of cavities. This is important since your teeth aren't being replaced but merely capped. You also will need to have a bite that is aligned. Even though Lumineers are widely called "instant orthodontics," they cannot correct a malocclusion. Individuals with acute bruxism or teeth grinding may also not be suited for Lumineers.
What should I expect from Lumineers treatment?
A mold of your teeth is sent over to the Lumineers lab after your consultation is completed. We at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Hamburg, PA are dedicated to working together with you to make sure everything is exactly how you want it, down to the tooth shade that matches your existing teeth. Since there is no need to contour your teeth to secure your Lumineers, you won't have to be fitted with temporary ones while you wait for yours to be created. After your Lumineers are complete, we will fit them during a painless procedure that does not entail shots, grinding, or drilling. This high-tech bonding process will provide excellent results while your entire tooth will stay intact beneath it.
what is recovery from thin veneers placement like?
Thin veneers are extremely customized to your mouth, which means that there’s no real adjustment period that you have to worry about. You’ll be able to drink and eat whatever you want after your appointment in our Hamburg, PA office with assurance because Lumineers are attached in such a secure way. It's still important that you don't bite down with force on things, such as ice or hard candies. Since the approach is so simple and noninvasive, there is typically no recovery period to worry about, as there is with traditional veneers. Lumineers will still have to be cared for just like your own natural teeth so make sure you brush and floss every day, and maintain appointments at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry every six months for regular maintenance and care.
will insurance cover veneers?
As far as insurance is concerned, Lumineers placement is a cosmetic procedure. This means that your dental insurance will likely not cover it. But at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we take a variety of payment options so that you can still get the dental treatment you desire. This includes CareCredit® and other low-interest medical financing options. Contact our Hamburg, PA practice to speak with a member of our team to learn more.
