Excellent Lumineers Treatment in Dubai
Lumineers treatment in Hellenic Dental clinic Dubai are the most advanced type of veneer available, made from the same durable and natural looking material as the porcelain veneer, they require minimal preparation of the natural tooth to provide the patient with the look that they desire at less cost to their underlying teeth.

Getting a veneer usually requires three visits with our dentist. At the initial visit, the patient is consulted by the specialist doctor and the other two visits are utilised for making and applying the veneers.
During the consultation process, you will be able to convey what your expectations are to the doctor who will provide his expert advice and recommendations. You will be actively involved in the process so as to ensure that you are happy at every stage of progression. Before the veneer is permanently fixed, it will be temporarily placed to examine its fit and the colour. This is your opportunity to make any final adjustments and see how your vision has come to life!

Q - Difference in look of teeth between the two visits?
A - On the first visit, the dentist prepares a provisional or temporary installation that will come as close as possible to the look the patient would like to achieve. The smile of a patient always looks better after the first visit, and after the second visit it will look great! Unlike most forms of cosmetic treatment, there is no healing time for this procedure.
Q - What to expect during the procedure?
A - During the procedure, patients usually experience no discomfort. On your first visit, your dentist may give you freezing (called a local anesthetic). Aside from having to keep your mouth open for a period of time, there is no pain involved. Your dentist then removes part of the enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. Your dentist makes an impression of your teeth. The impression is sent to a dental lab where your veneers are custom-made. On your next visit, your dentist puts a mild chemical on your teeth to make them a little rough. This helps the veneers stick to your teeth better. The veneers are then attached to your teeth one by one, using composite resin cement.
Q - Does the dentist use a laboratory for the procedure and is the cost of lab included in cost of the procedure?
A - The impressions of the teeth are sent to the lab to create custom-made veneers. The cost of the lab work is usually included in the procedure cost and is also discussed with the patient.

A - Veneers usually last for same timeframe for how long a crown will last. The ultimate timeframe depends on the oral health habits of the patient.
