Lumineers An Overview
Dr. Jacob Grapevine is a certified provider in Plano, Texas for Lumineers, an alternative cosmetic dentistry treatment to porcelain veneers.
Benefits of Lumineers
Lumineers are a revolutionary approach to achieving a beautiful smile. One of the most significant benefits of Lumineers is that they eliminate some of the concern about removing healthy tooth structure. Porcelain veneers require the dentist to remove tooth structure, but Lumineers are more like a contact lens, bonded to the front teeth and can be removed in the future if desired.

Lumineers vs. Porcelain Veneers vs. Cosmetic Bonding
Dr. Grapevine offers all three treatments in our Plano dentist office. He works with patients on an individualized basis to recommend the option that is best suited to their needs and goals. While cosmetic bonding can provide a quick, economical option, dental veneers may be the right solution for a more lasting result that meets your aesthetic goals.

Lumineers What to Expect
Making over your smile with dental veneers requires only two visits with us. The entire process is generally pain-free and there is no down time. The first visit lays the foundation for the final placement of your veneers and will include tooth preparation and dental impressions. Dr. Grapevine will prepare the tooth surface with minimal etching in order to secure your new veneers for a stable and comfortable fit. Temporary veneers may be placed while you wait for your custom Lumineers to be fabricated in a lab.
Once complete, your Lumineers will be permanently attached to the prepared teeth, then polished for a natural luster and smooth appearance. Lumineers can provide many years of healthy, beautiful smiles with routine dental care and good oral hygiene.
