When it comes to improving upon your own smile, there are countless different procedures out there for you. Veneers and lumineers, for example, have been gaining traction lately as two of the leading ways to improve upon the look of teeth. If you are looking to get either veneers or lumineers in Hollywood, here are a few pointers.
Benefits and Risks
The first concern that most people have when it comes to getting veneers or lumineers in Hollywood will be the risks that need to be factored in. Either process will often require a simple two visits in order to be completed, but veneers will often require more preparation than lumineers, which also cost less. Neither procedure is inherently risky, but you might not be the best candidate for both of them. Lumineers, for example, will depend on the existing alignment and the bite of the patient. Veneers, on the other hand, won’t be the best call if you are only dealing with surface-level issues that could potentially be addressed otherwise. The best course of action will be to get a consultation beforehand in which the options are explored.
When it comes to color, there will be a very distinct look for both veneers and lumineers. People who are seeking to get either procedure done with a certain aesthetic goal in mind should know that there are definitely differences in what the final color of the teeth will look like. A whiter smile will definitely be achieved with the help of veneers since the amount of tooth structure removed will actually be substituted with white porcelain material. Meanwhile, lumineers just add porcelain to the tooth structure. If you are starting out with a fairly discolored tooth and you are trying to correct coloration, then you might end up with bulky and big teeth. If you need to significantly improve upon color, veneers will be a better call.
So which procedure will give you a fuller smile? Well, if you are looking to get rid of dark spaces between teeth or your teeth and your cheek, then lumineers will get the job done. Depending on the bite of the opposing teeth, lumineers can help give patients a fuller and wider smile. However, if this is what you wish but you have a tight bite or a crossbite, then it will definitely be up to the veneers to get this fixed. Lumineer treatments, however, can be designed in such a way that they shape and fix crossbites, restoring the function and the symmetrical balance force of occlusion in lieu of a veneer overlay.
