At Made Ya Smile Dental in Rosenberg, TX, we are proud to offer the best and latest in aesthetic smile improvements with Lumineers®. These high-grade porcelain veneers are similar to traditional veneers but are much thinner at about 0.2mm. The thin size makes Lumineers very easy to place and does not require enamel to be removed before placement. Dr. Eric Capps is highly experienced in the placement of Lumineers and recommends this treatment to patients who would like to improve their smile with a long-term solution that appears natural but radiant. Lumineers are considered the "gold standard" among porcelain veneers, so it's no surprise that you can find them at Made Ya Smile Dental. To learn more or to get started with your Lumineers placement, contact our Rosenberg, TX facility today.
A minimal-prep cosmetic solution, Lumineers are ideal for disguising imperfections that affect the confidence of any healthy patient. The thin porcelain material can be used during a smile makeover to cover all of the top teeth, or perhaps you simply need a pair of veneers to improve your smile. Regardless, Dr. Capps is extensively trained in the cosmetic dentistry treatment and can help you understand the full benefits that Lumineers have to offer. The best candidates for the treatment have healthy gums and tooth structure. Additionally, patients should have a normal bite, if your teeth do not meet normally, you could accidentally damage your veneers. Lumineers are not a great option for patients who have been diagnosed with bruxism (teeth grinding). Though they have been previously called "instant orthodontics," Lumineers do not move the teeth. However, they are an outstanding alternative for patients with large gaps in their teeth. Lumineers are an ideal option for patients with chipped teeth or an uneven bite, and those with crooked, gapped, stained, misshapen, or discolored teeth.
What To Expect
Lumineers placement is a relatively simple procedure with immediate results that transform and improve your overall smile. The noninvasive procedure requires very little preparation and does not require the removal of tooth enamel prior to placement. Before beginning your procedure, a member of our team will take impressions of your teeth and send them to our partnering lab, where you Lumineers will be custom created for your teeth. Dr. Capps is well-equipped to ensure your veneers are the correct length, shape, and size so that they fit in well with your surrounding teeth and improve your overall aesthetic. The color of your veneers will be chosen to suit your expectations while matching your natural teeth as much as possible. Unlike traditional veneer procedures, you will not need to wear temporary veneers while yours are being made. You will simply return once they have been designed so that we can place them during a quick in-office visit. Dr. Capps will be to bond your Lumineers properly so that they feel comfortable and natural without compromising the internal structure of the base teeth.
You will not need any type of recovery period as the Lumineers placement process does not involve anesthesia or any invasive techniques. Immediately following your placement procedure, you can return to your daily activities with a luminous smile you will be thrilled to show off. Dr. Capps places Lumineers with an advanced bonding agent that holds your veneers in place while you enjoy your normal diet. It is advised that patients do not bite down on hard things such as ice, their fingernails, etc. as you could potentially damage your new Lumineers. To protect your new restorations for years to come, you should continue to schedule and attend dental cleanings and exams. During these visits, our team can keep an eye on your Lumineers to make sure they are holding up well. If repairs or adjustments need to be made, Dr. Capps can assist with that process during your visits. Lumineers may last up to 20 years when they are properly cared for!

Before beginning your treatment, our team will assess your benefits and determine your out-of-pocket costs.
