Lumineers Dental Veneers

Home | Cosmetic Dentistry | Lumineers Dental Veneers

Lumineers are a type of dental veneers we use mostly for aesthetic reasons. They are designed to craft a natural-looking smile. This transformative treatment offers us an efficient and clean way to solve small cosmetic problems, such as if your teeth are stained, crooked, misaligned, or have small gaps. They are the perfect choice for people that are unhappy with the way their smile looks.

What are Lumineers dental veneers?

Lumineers are ultra-thin, tooth-colored shells we prepare for your special case to transform your smile. They are as thin as contact lenses so that they can be seamlessly applied to your teeth, without the need to shave the enamel of the tooth like with the case of classical dental veneers. We use lumineers to treat:

  • Chipped Teeth
  • Gaps
  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Smile Esthetics
  • Old dental work

Advantages of Lumineers

  • Lumineers dental veneers are easily applied.
  • They look more natural because of their thin and translucent character.
  • There are no injections throughout the process.
  • They do not require a permanent enamel removal process.
  • They preserve the patient’s natural teeth as much as possible.

Lumineers dental veneers are widely chosen in the cosmetic dentistry area because of their certain advantages over other types of veneers. While traditional veneers are thicker and require a more aggressive preparation process, lumineers do not need an intense process. In traditional veneers procedure, we need to remove a big part of your healthy teeth to be able to apply the artificial ones. However, since they are ultra-thin, we do not need to do this for lumineers. 

For traditional veneers, because of the removal of the enamel, the procedure requires a long time where your enamel is removed and you are waiting for your veneers to be crafted. This can be a sensitive and lengthy process even if you get temporary covers. The change to your teeth’ enamel is also permanent and some patients are not comfortable with that.
