Lumineers versus Veneers
offer many advantages. The biggest disadvantage is in the preparation of your natural tooth
takes that disadvantage away. No prep is required.
Lumineers Deliver Beautiful Results with a Process that is Simple and Painless.
We can improve your smile in less time and with far more comfort than you think. Lumineers are ultra-thin (about the size of a contact lens), and applied seamlessly over your teeth, no grinding, no needles. Lumineers are the most requested veneer system in the world.
Not All Veneers Are the Same
Traditional veneers are thicker, requiring irreversible preparation of your tooth structure. Lumineers eliminates the need for aggressive preparation and temporary caps, it is made fast and applied at your second visit.
Two Easy Visits
In just two easy visits Dr. Bird can improve your smile with Lumineers.
Here's how it works:
Your first visit is easy, your Certified Lumineers Dentist, Dr. Bird, will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth
. He will send the mold to a Lumineers laboratory. Because there is no grinding work, you do not need to wear unsightly acrylic temporaries.
On your next visit, Dr. Bird will adhere your ultra thin porcelain Lumineers. Before they are bonded Dr. Bird will check the fit and then he will moderately etch the tooth to help the two surfaces have a strong bond. He will then check your bite ensuring your bite is balanced so as to avoid chipping your Lumineers through daily function.
That's it. It's that easy! With only two easy dental visits at our Tacoma, WA office, we can repair damaged or gapped teeth and give you a beautiful natural looking smile!
