Cosmetic Dentist Newport Beach answers two frequently asked questions about Lumineers.

Dr. Steve Q. Ngo DDS, of Image Dental OC responds to questions regarding Lumineers.

If I want to have my Lumineers removed, is that possible?

The special aspect about Lumineers is that the process can be reversed. Since there are no (grinding) adjustments made to your tooth structure, such as grinding, you will be able to reverse the process. Thus, your natural teeth will remain strong and unblemished.

If I get Lumineers, will I be able to chew gum and or consume foods that are sticky?

With Lumineers you are able to consume all types of foods or drinks without problems. Durability is the idea behind Lumineers and they are placed over the original teeth to ensure this. Visiting your dentist for exams is the best way to ensure great looking lumineers.

Newport Beach Dentist answers Questions about Adult Orthodontics and Braces.

As an adult could I wear braces to fix any irregularities?

Many adults believe that it would be too late in their lifetime to have corrective orthodontic treatments. However, adults can remedy problems such as gaps, overbites, improper jaw positions, under-bites, & crooked/crowded teeth. One difference between orthodontic treatments for adults and children may lie in the time and amount of treatment needed to make the corrections. Improving your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile may occur at any point in your life. Today, there are Invisalign treatments that will ensure that your braces are not as apparent.

Would I be able to take part in activities or sports while wearing braces?

We recommend that you have your dentist pick a mouth guard that is appropriate for your activity so that you do not suffer any injuries that will hinder your dental health.
