Smile South Florida - Broward County Cosmetic Dentist Becomes Lumineers® Certified
July 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News2007 - MIAMI, BOCA RATON AND FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA- Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry recently certified in the application of LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE®, an alternative to traditional porcelain veneers.
Dr. Charles Nottingham, a cosmetic dentist who is the senior partner of Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry, said the practice began offering LUMINEERS® due to numerous patient requests for the product.
"This option is good for people who have a fear of the dentist or don't want their teeth drilled on," Nottingham said. "People who have Tetracycline-stained teeth typically are good candidates for this procedure."
LUMINEERS® provide a painless way to permanently whiten and align teeth and repair chipped teeth without altering tooth structure. Traditional porcelain veneers require teeth to be shaped and grinded to ensure a proper fit.
LUMINEERS® are similar in thickness to a contact lens and they adhere to teeth in their current state- very little shaping or grinding may be necessary, Nottingham said. They can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.
"They are easy to apply and much more convenient for a patient," he said.
LUMINEERS® are applied in up to three visits and because of their strength and durability, they have been clinically proven to last more than 20 years. The procedure usually is completely reversible if desired.
Once they are affixed to the teeth, no additional maintenance is required with LUMINEERS®, other than a follow-up visit to your dentist and proper brushing and flossing on a daily basis.
