Lumineers - how many teeth do I need?

How many teeth is the usual when doing lumineers?

The number is determined by ... #DrSarahThompson #STL

The number of Lumineers needed is determined by the number of teeth that show when you smile normally.   The easiest way to determine this by yourself is to take a selfie photo smiling normally.  Then zoom up on the pic and count the number of teeth that show on the top.  Most people will count anywhere from 4 to 12 teeth, with the norm being about 8 teeth.  I hope this helps.  You can follow me on RealSelf by clicking "save" under my name, in think you have more questions for me.
