What are dental lumineers?
If you are surprised about the ongoing publicity of dental veneers, you have landed at just the right place. In simple English, dental veneers are pieces of porcelain exactly the same size of your teeth that are placed in front of them to make them look better – They work same as fake fingernails on your nails or a nice sticker on a notebook.
In other words we can say that veneers are the best and safest way of turning your teeth into sparkling and shining teeth you’ve always imagined. The use of veneers is not just confined to appearance but they work behinds the scenes too, that is they improve the alignment of your crooked teeth in addition to filling the gaps in between them.
In the Houston market, there are two types of veneers available. Porcelain and Resin veneers. Porcelain veneers are durable and more stain resistant than the other. Resin veneers are currently less popular in comparison and are made up of two materials. Another type of veneers that are recently getting attention is known as lumineers. These are the thinnest available veneers having strength and impose no weight on the teeth.
Veneers may cost more than some other dental cosmetic options, but when you look at the durability and the results, it is an investment worth considering. The money depends on the number of teeth being replaced in case of porcelain veneers. Usually, it would take around 600 to 2500 dollars per tooth. Composite veneers are more reasonable than porcelain as they would cost somewhere in the range of 250 to 1500 dollars per tooth. When it comes to lumineers, these lie in the range of 700 to 1500 dollars per tooth. The cost may also vary depending on the place you might be getting them from. Some metropolis based clinics charge $12000 per tooth and obviously it also depends upon the dentist Different dentists charge different rates for these veneers according to their level.
Coming to the dentists carrying out the placement of these veneers, it is also of high importance that you find a right dentist for you. You must find a dentist who can understand and meet your specific needs, as the complete process depends upon the skill of the dentist. Mark out all the details and tell them to your dentist before choosing or deciding anything. So, it is important to find a dentist with whom you can talk all about this comfortably and get satisfying results after a major makeover.
It is also to be kept in mind that although veneers offer great benefits, like every other dental cosmetic, veneers too may not be perfect. Sometimes porcelain veneers can come off and when it happens, it is only your dentist who can fix them back. In case of breakage, they are irreparable. Another side-effect of veneers is the sensitivity to hot and cold food or drinks. This happens due to the partial removal of the enamel during the fixing of veneers.
