Dr. Angela Canfield Receives Lumineers® Brand Veneer Certification
(SAVANNAH, GA) Two dentists with Premier Dental Designs of Rincon and Sandfly Dental in Savannah, Angela Canfield and Katelyn Sundin, are now certified in the application of Lumineeers, the number one patient-requested brand of dental veneers.
Both practices also offer free consultations for patients who are considering the procedure.
“What makes Lumineers unique is that they are ultra thin and highly translucent, which allows them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel, but it also means there is minimal tooth reduction during the procedure,” said Canfield. “This is healthier for the tooth and less painful for the patient.”
Canfield said Lumineers are often the best alternative to adult braces and for patients with spaces between teeth or those seeking a permanent bleaching solution. While all situations are different, she said, the durability of Lumineers typically allows them to resist wear and remain resilient for more than 20 years.
The cost is about the same as — and sometimes less than — traditional veneers, Canfield said, and Lumineers are completely reversible because, in most cases, there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure, which means the natural teeth are still intact and strong.
“The procedure usually takes three appointments of an hour or less, and most patients don’t even need numbing,” Canfield said. “We take impressions during the first appointment, then fit patients with a temporary during the second appointment, which they can wear for a few weeks. They can see what it will look like and request changes before we make the permanent appliances.”
Canfield and Sundin are among only a few certified Lumineer dentists in the Savannah area.
“We offer free consultations and will take photos of the patient to show them how Lumineers can transform their smiles,” said Canfield. “We’ll also explain other options or discuss whether another procedure would be a better solution.”
For patients seeking a less permanent and less expensive option, Canfield and Sundin are certified providers of Snap-On Smile, a more affordable, non-invasive and removable arch that can be a temporary or long-term provisional cosmetic solution.
