Lumineers®

Lumineers® are a porcelain veneer option that can whiten and straighten your teeth. Lumineers® are an attractive option since they are very thin and can be used to change the shape and shade of your teeth with minimal preparation to your original teeth. Lumineers® can be custom made and bonded to your natural teeth in just 2 office visits.  

Like traditional custom porcelain veneers, Lumineers® are designed to treat a number of different dental problems, such as:
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
Benefits of Lumineers®

Lumineers® offer a number of potential benefits.
  • Minimal reshaping of your natural teeth in order to prepare for the Lumineers® veneers
  • Because they don't require a lot of change to you original teeth, Lumineers® veneers, in most cases, can be completely reversible in some cases.
  • No temporary veneers are needed in the process
  • Lumineers® cover only the visible fronts and bite area of teeth
  • Lumineers® are stain resistant, durable and natural looking
How do Lumineers® differ from traditional veneering procedures?

Porcelain veneers always require preparation of your natural teeth, whereas Lumineers® typically don't require any reshaping in order to be placed.

Is there more than one manufacturer of Lumineers®?

No. Lumineers® are created from patented Cerinate porcelain. The process for their design is only practiced at Den-Mat Corporation, which is one of the largest dental material manufacturers in the United States.

What should I expect during my Lumineers® treatment?

Typically, Lumineers® do not require any preparation to be done to your natural teeth. So you are not required to wear any temporary veneers while your permanent Lumineers® are being fabricated. Therefore, the Lumineers® process is very comfortable and convenient. 

I really need braces. Are Lumineers® an option instead?

In many cases, Lumineers® are an alternative to the discomfort and embarrassment of traditional braces to straighten your smile. They can also provide better results in less time. Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Laurie can perform a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for Lumineers®. If you do not have severe dental problems that require more in-depth correction, Lumineers® can be designed to change the appearance of your teeth so you can enjoy a straighter smile that fits your lifestyle.
