What Are Lumineers?

It's time to take your smile to the next level. Lumineers® from our friendly and knowledgeable staff at Made Ya Smile offers a solution that is considered the gold standard in cosmetic treatments. Lumineers are veneers that require very little preparation to make a more brilliant and balanced smile. Our Cypress, TX clinic offers these restorations to hide a variety of flaws similar to porcelain veneers; however, Lumineers only measure about 0.2 mm, which makes them a thinner, more viable option. Unlike their porcelain counterpart, Lumineers do not require any tooth enamel to be removed for a comfortable fit. Lumineers are long-lasting, durable, and are translucent in appearance just like tooth enamel, which makes it look natural on your smile. To see if Lumineers are an option for you, visit us at our Cypress, TX clinic for more details. 

Who Is a Candidate for Lumineers?

Lumineers are a great solution for correcting small cosmetic imperfections, or if you simply want to enhance the appearance of your smile. They can help mask small gaps in the teeth, stained teeth, chips, uneven edges, and more. To be considered for Lumineers, the practitioners at Made Ya Smile look at a few factors before moving forward. Since Lumineers attach to the front of the teeth, a patient must be cavity-free and have healthy gums, as well as a bite that is in proper alignment. Patients should note that Lumineers do not reposition or move the teeth in any way. If you have other high-priority needs, such as an underbite or overbite, our Cypress, TX clinic will first seek to treat you with orthodontics before moving forward with Lumineers. Made Ya Smile also does not recommend Lumineers for patients who clench or grind their teeth, also known as bruxism. 

How Do Lumineers Work?

While the process takes a total of two visits to complete, Made Ya Smile does not require much preparation time as this is a non-invasive procedure. Veneer placement does not require an anesthetic or any drilling, so patients can feel safe and comfortable at our office. During the first visit, our practitioners take impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to a special lab for fabrication. We will determine the right shade of white that matches most closely to your natural smile. Since we don't need to remove any enamel from your teeth, you don't need to wear a temporary restoration while you wait for your Lumineers. After two weeks or less, you can return to Made Ya Smile in Cypress, TX for your second appointment, where our general dentists will bond the Lumineers to your teeth. After this pain-free, easy procedure, we will give you instructions on how to take care of your new, improved smile. 

How Can I Care for My Lumineers?

Because Lumineers don't require any surgery or tooth enamel to be removed, there is no recovery time after this procedure, which means once they are placed, patients may enjoy their new Lumineers in Cypress, TX. Lumineers are permanently bonded with a strong cement, so you can freely eat any type of food; however, it is best to avoid chewing or biting down on hard objects like ice, fingernails, and pens. With proper care, Lumineers can last for as long as 20 years. Our practitioners still require you to take care of your restoration as normally as you would your own natural teeth with brushing and flossing. Make sure to schedule your annual dental exam as well as your biannual cleanings so we can check on the condition of your Lumineers. 

Are Lumineers Covered by Dental Insurance?

Lumineers are a cosmetic, elective treatment, so they are not normally covered by dental insurance providers. The administrative staff at Made Ya Smile will call your provider to confirm this is the case, but keep in mind we do accept many forms of payment as well as a low-interest financing option to make the procedure easier to afford. During your consultation at our Cypress, TX office, we will talk about these options and discuss quotes and out-of-pocket-costs for your dental care. 

Lumineers FAQ

Can I whiten my Lumineers?
The color of your Lumineers cannot be lightened once they have been bonded to your teeth. If you are interested in learning more about Lumineers for your teeth at our Cypress, TX office, contact our team to schedule an appointment.

What is the difference between veneers and Lumineers?
Veneers require your dentist to grind down your tooth before placing the veneer over it. However, Lumineers are simply placed over your tooth, allowing the natural enamel to remain intact. Lumineers are primarily used to enhance your smile by improving imperfections like color, chips, or cracks.

Will my teeth decay under my Lumineers?
No, your teeth should not decay under your Lumineers if you are maintaining proper oral hygiene. Our Made Ya Smile dentists recommend flossing and brushing your teeth at least twice a day for optimal oral health.
