Porcelain Lumineer Allergies
Allergies to dental materials such as impression material, dental cement, plastic material, composites for bonding, local anesthetic, metals, and being allergic to porcelain lumineers are not uncommon. Although there is allergic testing to dental materials, such as Clifford testing, I have found it helpful but not 100% accurate. It is a start!
Be aware that one should distinguish between allergy (swollen tissue, runny eyes, etc…) and inflammation due to bacteria. So it is best to check with your cosmetic dentist before any procedure to ensure no infected tissue. Should everything be ok, then yes, there is a possibility of allergies to the new material used by your dentist.
The dentist can ask the laboratory to provide the exact material used, and you, as a patient, can get allergic testing to that material. Although this is a lengthy and costly period the patient needs to go through in the end, it is all worth it! Suppose you are not allergic to that material. In that case, the next step gets harder since the dentist must now provide one by one each material used in conjunction with the cementation procedure to be tested individually to find out the solution for the patient!
