Beachwood Dental is honored to be a certified supplier of Lumineers, high-end porcelain veneers, that offer restoration to our Los Alamitos, CA patients. Lumineers are unique and higher quality than traditional veneers thanks to their sleek, thin design, customizability, and more natural-looking surface. Once placed onto the teeth, a patient's cosmetic flaws, such as chips, stains, irregular shape, or gaps can be concealed and restored. They are typically only placed on the front of the teeth and on the chewing surface in order to eliminate bulk. Lumineers are also easier to place onto the tooth and require very little preparation prior to the procedure, offering quick, longer-lasting, and natural results that our patients love. Our remarkable dentists would be happy to consult with each patient beforehand to evaluate their needs and offer custom-made veneers to brighten and improve their smile.
What to Expect
Lumineers usually only take 2 visits to complete: first to prepare the teeth and make impressions, then a second visit to fit and bond the custom Lumineers. At the first visit, our dentist will take physical impressions of the upper and lower arches, as well as digital X-rays and photos, which will be sent to a Lumineers laboratory where the custom veneers will be created. Once the Lumineers are produced and returned to our office, the patient will return to have their veneers fitted. To secure the fit between the teeth and the veneers, our dentist will lightly etch the teeth before bonding the Lumineers to the teeth. Finally, our dentist will adjust the veneers as needed to ensure the teeth are aligned and comfortable.
With proper care, Lumineers can last up to 20 years. Since Lumineers are made with high-quality materials and properly fitted by our certified Lumineers dentists, patients do not need to limit what they eat and drink. Patients should continue a good home oral care routine, including brushing and flossing, and visiting our office for dental exams and cleanings. Patients can choose to have their Lumineers removed at any point without concern, since the Lumineers do not require grinding down the natural teeth before placement.
