Oldsmar, FL (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Dr. Ramon Ortiz, cosmetic and dental implants dentist in Oldsmar, FL, recently introduced Lumineers for patients seeking a better alternative for the bright, beautiful smile they’ve always dreamed of. The Lumineers offered by Dr. Ramon Ortiz are a less complicated procedure than traditional porcelain veneers, and can be used to correct a myriad of cosmetic issues.
While traditional veneers have been a common choice for patients who want to conceal misaligned, chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth, the procedure for Lumineers requires extensive preparation and drilling to complete. Traditional veneers, which are thin porcelain shells attached to the front side of teeth, are not reversible, and on average last between 5-10 years before needing replacements. Lumineers, however, don’t require extensive preparation and in most cases are completely reversible. Because they are only about the thickness of a contact lens, they produce a much more natural look but their strength has been shown to last up to 20 years.
“We see many patients who have perfectly healthy teeth and gums, but just don’t like the look of their smile,” said Dr. Ramon Ortiz cosmetic dentist at Center For Smiles, in Oldsmar, FL. “With Lumineers, we’re able to easily change their look and create a bright, beautiful smile they can be confident about without altering the tooth structure or the patient having to undergo extensive procedures.”
For some patients, Lumineers provide the results for their dream smile that would otherwise come from orthodontic treatment, extensive bleaching, or re-shaping. Dr. Ortiz works with each patient individually to help them design the smile that best fits their preferences. This includes determining the proper size, shape, and color of teeth that the patient envisions.
In addition to providing Lumineers and dental implants, Dr. Ortiz is also a certified Invisalign dentist in Oldsmar, FL. He provides a variety of other cosmetic procedures to help patients feel confident about their smile. For unexpected situations, Dr. Ortiz is an emergency dentist in Oldsmar, FL, and also has training in TMJ dentistry.

He is a graduate of the University of Florida School of Dentistry and former member of the U.S. Air Force, where he practiced as a dentist for 20 years.
