Before Installing Dental Lumineers

On the patient’s first visit to the doctor at the clinic or center, the doctor examines the teeth, gums, and jaw visually, then in some slightly complicated cases, the doctor requests X-rays and medical examinations that may help in a good examination and understanding of the real problem and trying to solve it with the appropriate treatment and preparing the mouth for Lumineers installation.

After ensuring the mouth’s health and the absence of any health problems that may affect the results after installation, such as decay or infections or any gum-related diseases, the doctor prepares the mouth for the lenses installation. You can learn about the causes of gum ulcers, the most common gum-related diseases, and how to treat them by reading this article.

The Process of Installing Dental Lumineers

The process of installing Lumineers veneers takes place over two sessions where the doctor in the first session takes measurements of the patient’s teeth with the help of wax molds and the dental lab technician makes the Lumineers lenses. Then, in the second session, the doctor tries on the Lumineers and checks their fit in shape and size with the teeth before installing and gluing them to the teeth surface if they fit.

After Installing Dental Lumineers

The Lumineers installation process is painless because it is one of the safest techniques, so the patient not undergoing anesthesia does not suffer from any side effects after the installation process and can lead a normal life.

However, some medical guidelines should be adhered to in maintaining oral and dental hygiene so that the lenses last for many years with the patient. These instructions can be summarized in that the patient should brush their teeth daily and reduce smoking so as not to change the color of the teeth, avoid colored and sugary foods and drinks as well as stimulants, and not expose the teeth to any high pressures.

Lumineers and Bad Breath

Many patients treated with dental Lumineers and also veneers complain about the appearance of bad breath odors, and researchers and specialists attribute the cause to the accumulation of bacteria under the surface of the lenses.

We will present the opinions of one of the cases that underwent Lumineers treatment at The Dental Center, where one of the girls who suffered from yellowing of the teeth and the beginning of white spots on their surface and decay of one of the molars, which affected her health and her psyche due to her inability to smile freely. Upon consulting one of the doctors at The Dental Center, the doctor conducted the necessary examinations and determined the treatment protocol that prepares the teeth before installing the lenses, and once the teeth were fully healed and the mouth was healthy, the doctor installed Lumineers veneers on her teeth surface, and after two sessions, the results exceeded her expectations, making her continue to follow up with the center and ensure to receive special care for her teeth during periodic sessions.

  • They result in an attractive and bright smile.

Disadvantages of Lumineers Compared to Veneers

We will compare the disadvantages of Lumineers and veneers to make it easier for the patient to make a decision in choosing one of them. The disadvantages of Lumineers compared to veneers are as follows:

  • Lumineers are thin in thickness, which affects the color of the teeth, so the teeth do not appear as white when Lumineers are installed compared to veneers.
  • Lumineers require a skilled doctor with previous practical experience in their installation to avoid incorrect adherence to the tooth surface, which can lead to cloudiness and gum inflammation.
  • The thinness of Lumineers does not prevent their direct adhesion to the teeth, which can cause an increase in tooth size.
  • Lumineer veneers require high expertise from the technician who manufactures them to fit all their angles and sizes with the angles and size of the patient’s teeth.
  • Veneers weaken the teeth and cause erosion due to the removal of part of the enamel layer that coats the teeth.
  • Veneers are easily damaged due to poor adhesion to the tooth surface after enamel removal, making the teeth more sensitive over time and more prone to decay.
  • Both can cause bad breath due to lack of adhesion to the tooth surface, resulting in bacteria accumulation underneath them.

How to Choose Between Veneers and Lumineers?

The doctor is the only person capable of determining the lenses that suit the patient. The doctor evaluates the patient’s health condition, considers their medical history and the nature of their teeth, whether they are large or small, to decide whether veneers or Lumineers are more suitable. One doctor explained that small teeth needing enlargement are better suited to veneers than Lumineers. The doctor then consults with the patient to explain the situation and ask about the affordability of the treatment so they can choose the best solution together.
