Committing to a beautiful smile sounds easier than it is, at least for some people. While the idea of a gorgeous smile is easy to grasp onto, sometimes the procedure itself can send people into a spiral of questions, leaving them uneasy. At White Smiles Family Dentistry, we want you to confide in our knowledge and experience when it comes to giving you the smile that you love. In order to put your nerves at rest, we’ve created a compilation of the three most common questions we’re asked before a procedure.

Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?
Sometimes the most terrifying part of a procedure is the results. While you may want to improve your smile, the end result of your veneer procedure may not feel quite like you, or like what you imagined. Since your teeth aren’t grinded down or shaped, you are able to remove the lumineers whenever you’d like, and still have your natural teeth intact.

What can I expect during the procedure?
The typical procedure requires at least two visits. During the first visit, we will create the mold for your lumineers as well as determine what shade of white is the best fit for you. After your time spent with the dentist, we will send your mold off to the lab so that your customized veneers are created. Once these are made, your second visit will be comprised of the placement. The application of lumineers is painless and has you ready to walk out with your new smile as soon as the procedure is finished.

How long do veneers last?
Studies have shown that lumineers can look and feel great for over 20 years. The lumineers smile will not only continue to fit perfectly, but it will still have an entirely natural look and feel that will maintain the beautiful smile you love. As we mentioned earlier though, you can remove the lumineers at any point in time that you’d like and still have your healthy natural smile underneath.
