What are Lumineers?

Last updated 6 years ago

Lumineers are similar to veneers in that they offer a permanent cosmetic solution to people who want a whiter, more beautiful smile. These tooth-colored shells are thinner than traditional veneers and require less invasive treatment. Lumineers are made from a specially formulated porcelain material, designed to give patients custom smile enhancement. If you’re dissatisfied with your smile’s appearance, ask your cosmetic dentist if Lumineers are right for you.

How Do Lumineers Differ from Veneers?

Unlike other veneers, Lumineers have no need for shots or invasive tooth sculpting. Veneers are sturdy caps that are glued to the front surfaces of the teeth with a dental adhesive. Lumineers, on the other hand, are ultra-thin shells that are seamlessly fitted over the natural teeth in just two non-invasive dental appointments. Unlike veneers, Lumineers are reversible, so you can switch back to your natural smile if you desire.

What Can You Expect from Your Lumineers?

Lumineers repair chipped, discolored, and misaligned teeth. You can also expect a bright and beautiful smile without having to endure long, tedious, or uncomfortable dental treatments. Plus, Lumineers can be placed over existing crowns and other previous dental work without the need for scraping or grinding. Finally, you can expect your Lumineers to last up to 20 years, and longer in some cases.

How Are Lumineers Applied?

If you choose Lumineers for your smile restoration, your cosmetic dentist will begin by taking a precision mold of your smile. You will then work with your dentist to choose a shade for your Lumineers. Approximately two weeks later, you will meet with your dentist for the final visit and have your Lumineers painlessly fitted to your teeth.
