For top-quality, porcelain veneers, our dentists at Emigh Dental Care in Long Beach, CA offer Lumineers by DenMat Lab. Lumineers can be custom-made to fit patient's unique dental structure to correct noticeable gaps, chipped teeth, stained teeth, or uneven spacing. Compared to other porcelain veneers, Lumineers have an ultra-thin, translucent structure that requires little to no tooth grinding. Their composition also allows for a more natural tooth appearance, which makes them an attractive alternative to traditional veneers. Our certified Lumineers dentists at Emigh Dental Care will be able to perform a full dental exam and consult to determine if Lumineers are the best fit for their patients.
"The front staff at Emigh Dental Care is very friendly and welcoming. There's even water and apple juice while you wait. The waiting room is open and comfy! There's also ample parking in the parking structure! I had my first examination with Dr. Reel today. She was warm, open and friendly! Freddy, the DA escorted me back to the exam room and explained everything thoroughly. I did share that I was worried about my teeth because I haven't had dental care in about 3 years (no dental insurance). After 3 years with no dental care, I have just 1 cavity. After seeing Dr. Reel, Freddy took me to see hygienist, Tammy. Like Dr. Reel, Tammy was warm and friendly. She explained all the things that were to come for my cleaning and the importance of flossing. On 9/17 my 2 year old son and husband saw Dr. Todd. Dr. Todd thoroughly answered all our questions re: jaw surgery for my husband and referred him to an orthodontist. Although my 2 year old son didn't cooperate by opening his mouth, Dr. Todd was able to entertain and make my son feel comfortable. Maybe next time, Dr. Todd will get to take a look at my son's teeth. I look forward to getting my cavity fixed and my next cleaning. Thanks Emigh Dental Care!"- N.S. / Yelp / Sep 21, 2018

"This place truly knows the meaning of customer service, I'm very impressed by the professionalism of the staff. I'm a new client and had to have a filling replaced that had fallen out of one of my back molars. I had an issue at my first visit, the first time they tried to refill it (it took two tries in the office) and then it fell out again, about an hour after I got home. When I came back to get it refilled again, I was not comfortable having the same dentist working on it because she had trouble getting it right the first time. I asked to see someone else. When I came back I was taken care of by Dr. Todd. He was very pleasant and made me feel at ease as soon as I arrived. He's an extremely caring person and more than qualified to fix this hard to fill filling. He not only fixed my tooth but he reassured me that the other dentist was also more than qualified to help me, but that he wanted to make sure I felt comfortable with the service I received. I absolutely love this place and how they treated me, they never made me feel weird for asking for another dentist to fix the issue. If you are searching for excellent dentists who provide impeccable care in a clean and friendly environment with a staff that really values the concept of customer service, I highly recommend the good people at Emigh Dental Care. I like them so much that I referred my fiancé to them too. Try Emigh Dental Care, you will not be disappointed."- S.V. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2018
What to Expect
Lumineers are typically completed in two separate office visits. During the initial visit, our dentists will take a digital impression of the upper and lower teeth, detailed photos, and digital X-rays. This information will then be sent to a certified Lumineers lab where the custom-made Lumineers will be manufactured. At the second appointment, the teeth will be lightly grinded and the lumineers will be placed. The grinding is necessary to ensure a strong bond; however, it does not compare to the severe grinding required for traditional veneers. Once the patient's Lumineers are placed one by one, our dentists will examine their bite and ensure proper bond and placement is complete and comfortable.
Thanks to the modern composition of Lumineers, results are long-lasting and have been known to last up to 20 years. Since Lumineers are made of high-quality material and allow for optimal function, patients can continue to eat and drink what they want. However, proper care and dental hygiene are also necessary to maintain and prolong the results. This means that patients should not only maintain a daily habit of brushing and flossing but continue to visit our office for routine dental exams and cleanings as well. During the dental exams, our dentists will be able to examine the patient's Lumineers and check on their alignment and bond to ensure their integrity. Patients can also choose to have their Lumineers removed at any time if they so desire, which is another advantage compared to traditional veneers.
