Glendale Dentist Explains What Makes Cerinate Porcelain Perfect for Dental LUMINEERS

Written by Dr. McKay on Jul 17, 2012

Patients have a number of options when it comes to cosmetic dentistry treatments, and all of them have their own benefits to suit specific patients. One particularly popular cosmetic treatment in our Glendale cosmetic dental office is dental LUMINEERS.

Dental LUMINEERS are thin layers of Cerinate porcelain that are attached to existing teeth. LUMINEERS can completely transform the appearance of a patient’s smile in only two or three appointments. One thing that sets LUMINEERS apart from other dental restoration is that LUMINEERS are made of Cerinate porcelain.

Cerinate porcelain is strong, natural looking porcelain, ideal for dental restorations. Because LUMINEERS are made of Cerinate porcelain, they have a number of benefits for cosmetic patients including:

Natural looking appearance

LUMINEERS crafted for Cerinate porcelain are luminous and white, just like natural teeth. Because Cerinate porcelain resembles natural enamel, you never have to worry about your LUMINEERS appearing “dull” or “fake.” LUMINEERS look so natural, in fact, that they can be used to cover just a single tooth, which will blend seamlessly with your natural enamel.

Superior strength

Cerinate porcelain is strong and stable once it has been bonded to teeth. Consequently, LUMINEERS are crafted to be much thinner than traditional dental veneers. In fact LUMINEERS are about as thin as a contact lens. Because LUMINEERS are so thin, your dentist will not have to file away a significant amount of healthy tooth structure in order to place your LUMINEERS (as opposed to the dental veneers process). This keeps your teeth stronger and healthier in the long term.

LUMINEERS are an increasingly popular option among patients because they are strong, natural looking, and help patients maintain dental health. If you’ve been thinking about improving your smile with cosmetic dentistry, LUMINEERS could be a viable solution for you.
