Do you know that you want your smile to be brighter, but aren’t sure what can get it done? Have you gone between lumineers and veneers, trying to find the best option? The truth is that they have very significant differences between them. There are big pros and cons to each. However, the best news is that you’ll have a guide in making your decision: Dr. Mobasser. A world-renowned cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles who’s placed thousands of Lumineers and veneers, he can do what it takes to give you your best smile.
The name “Lumineers” is fitting, as that’s what these do: they “illuminate” your smile. Specifically, they can make your smile that much brighter. “Lumineers” are actually veneers themselves, just made very, very thin. To describe Lumineers as “ultra-thin” can give you some idea as to just how thin these veneers are. Another way to describe them: “No Prep Veneers.” Usually, it just takes only two visits to Dr. Mobasser’s practice for these Lumineers to be placed. That could mean that you’re enjoying your best smile (and other people are enjoying it, too) in just a brief period of time.
What Lumineers Can Do
For one, they’re much less invasive than other procedures. Lumineers don’t really change the existing teeth, they just sort of go over them. Another important factor in Lumineers’ favor: cost. These are a less expensive option, particularly when compared to so many others. While cosmetic dentistry can absolutely change your life in a positive way, it’s rarely covered by your insurance. If you don’t like the way the Lumineers look on your teeth (or you’d like to pursue other options after they’ve been placed) that’s fine – the procedure is reversible. That said, in the hands of an expert like Dr. Mobasser, these Lumineers can bond strongly to your enamel. So, if you’d like, they can stay put for a long time.
Why Veneers Might (or Might Not) Be a Better Option
Lumineers can be the right option for so many people. However, they won’t be the best option for everyone. For one, they might not be able to make your smile as white as you would like. Veneers, in comparison to Lumineers, can actually look more natural as well as better. Lumineers tend to be bulkier, and more cumbersome than veneers as well.
