Lumineers are an ultra-thin brand of porcelain veneers made by Den-Mat, a dental company located in California. They are made to be very strong and thinner than other types of porcelain veneers. As shown in the image to the right, they are approximately 0.2 millimeters thinner than an average porcelain veneer. This means that it is less likely that you will require tooth preparation, which is quite appealing to many people that are interested in a smile makeover.
The process is pain-free and convenient. All that is required is having an impression of your teeth taken. Then you simply wait a couple of weeks for them to return from the laboratory and we will bond them into place.
It is important that you seek the talents of a true cosmetic dentist for any kind of cosmetic work. The dentist must be passionate about creating beautiful smiles because it takes a high degree of artistic ability to do cosmetic dentistry well.
Are Lumineers the Way to Go?
Lumineers are just one brand of ultra-thin porcelain veneers. We will meet with you to explain the differences, as well as the pros of cons of each brand. We will evaluate your specific case and help you determine if they are indeed right for you.
In some instances, the no preparation technique won’t look good on you and we will be honest about the results you can expect. Some patients have complained that their smile appears bulky and others have commented that their lip occasionally gets stuck on them. We offer a full selection of cosmetic dentistry services. This means that we can make helpful recommendations about which kind of porcelain veneers or other kind of cosmetic treatment will work the best for your specific case.
