Did you know that you can painlessly transform the size, shape, color and strength of your teeth with Lumineers©?
Lumineers are an ultra-thin, ultra-comfortable, and ultra-simple form of *dental veneer that is applied seamlessly over your teeth for a bright, beautiful, natural looking smile.
There are many differences between Lumineers and traditional veneers. We encourage you to take a few moments to look some of them over below and ask us questions; know your options!
*What are dental veneers?
Veneers are tooth-colored shells that are custom-made and applied to the surface of your teeth. They are typically used cosmetically or as a more comfortable form of braces.
Veneers are used to fix the size, shape and/or color of teeth that have undesirable defects like staining, chips, or gaps.
How are Lumineers different from normal veneers?
Procedure, Pain, and Removal
Traditional veneers require the dentist to shave off about 0.5 mm of enamel from the tooth’s surface before application using permanent adhesive. Because the procedure is painful, standard veneers are typically applied under anesthetic. If the veneer is removed, the surface must then be covered with another material to protect the sensitive tooth.
Applying Lumineers is a painless, anesthetic-free process that is done without the need for grinding down the tooth’s surface before placement. Lumineers are completely reversible and easily removed, requiring no new cover for the teeth as they are left intact, healthy and strong.
Material, Appearance and Durability
Lumineers are made from a specific type of porcelain called Cerinate. Because they are ultra-thin and highly translucent, they replicate the natural appearance of enamel more effectively than traditional veneers. Lumineers are durable and resistant to wear, remaining resilient for over 20 years.
