Jacksonville, FL general dentist Dr. Michael McClure is helping patients with healthy teeth finally get the smile they’ve dreamed of without wires, brackets, drilling, or pain through the use of Lumineers. Representing some of the latest technology in cosmetic dentistry, Lumineers give patients the chance to completely transform the look of their smile in just one to two office visits.
Though Lumineers are similar to traditional porcelain veneers, they offer patients many additional benefits that position them as the premier choice for cosmetic smile improvements. Lumineers can be used to conceal minor crowding or gapping of teeth, and even teeth that are undesirably shaped or permanently discolored. Because Lumineers are extremely thin, they provide a much more natural appearance and require significantly less preparation than conventional veneers.
“We see a lot of patients in our office who take great care of their smile and have very healthy teeth, yet they are still embarrassed of their smile because of the shape, size, or alignment of their teeth,” said Dr. Michael McClure, cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville, FL. “Lumineers are an ideal solution in these cases because we can easily correct the issues they are self-conscious about in just a couple office visits, in a way that is completely painless.”
Conventional veneers require teeth to be drilled or etched in order for the porcelain material to adhere to the tooth’s surface. Because of this, conventional veneers are not reversible. Lumineers, however, are approximately the thickness of a contact lens and don’t require any permanent changes to the natural teeth for proper placement, making them entirely reversible. Despite their thinness, however, Lumineers are extremely durable and can last up to 20 years if taken care of properly.
Dr. McClure works closely with Lumineer patients to design a new smile that is the shape and color they desire. For patients who have more than mild gapping or misalignment of their teeth, Dr. McClure is also a certified Invisalign dentist in Jacksonville, FL and can offer patients the option of straightening their teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces.
Dr. Michael McClure is a board certified general dentist with more than 15 years of experience. He served in the U.S. Navy for more than a decade and has been practicing in the Jacksonville area since 2005. He is one of just over 700 dentists in the U.S. to be awarded a Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry. He is a member of numerous professional dental associations, including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the ADA, and more.
