Steps to install Lumineers dental veneers

The installation of Lumineers dental veneers is carried out over several sessions determined by the doctor according to the severity of the patient’s condition and their medical history. The procedures vary from one patient to another depending on their health status, but there are some general steps that are applied in all medical cases regardless of their age groups. The necessary steps for installing Lumineers can be summarized as follows:

  • After the medical examination and deciding on Lumineers as a cosmetic treatment for dental defects, the doctor takes the patient’s damaged teeth measurements using wax molds and selects the appropriate whiteness level for the patient’s natural teeth.
  • These measurements are given to a dental lab technician to make similar veneer installations in size and shape.
  • The doctor prepares the teeth and mouth for the installation of the veneers and treats any potential problems for the gums, teeth, or tissues in the cavity.
  • Trying the Lumineers on the patient’s teeth to see how well they fit and making the necessary adjustments.
  • Cleaning the teeth from any food remnants stuck between their gaps to prevent bacterial growth.
  • Properly installing the Lumineers on the teeth’s surface and possibly using some light rays on these veneers to ensure their stability on the teeth’s surface if modern techniques are used. You can learn details about the Lumineers smile technique through this article.

Possibly, all dental veneers, including Lumineers, can cause bad breath. This is due to the veneers not being properly adhered to the teeth’s surface, leaving

gaps or spaces between these veneers and the teeth’s surface. With food consumption, remnants accumulate in these gaps, leading to bacterial growth and the spread of infection in the mouth, causing bad odors.
