Lumineers are a name brand, low profile porcelain veneer. Lumineers are digitally designed with the use of computer technology to be extremely thin, so that they can be applied seamlessly over your existing tooth. Most often, not needing to remove any tooth enamel. The procedure is generally much less invasive than the process of fitting a porcelain veneer. Both traditional (porcelain) veneers and Lumineers® are made of porcelain, an extremely strong and long-lasting material. Like traditional porcelain veneers, Lumineers are crafted to fit over the front facing surfaces of teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, we will not typically need to remove any healthy tooth structure prior to the placement of your Lumineers. This means they’re much more conservative, and you may be able to undo the results in some situations.
Lumineers are placed over the course of two visits. During your first appointment, we’ll capture impressions, x-rays, and images that will be used to design flawless Lumineers. Then, we’ll send our design to a trusted dental lab where your minimal prep veneers will be crafted. When we receive the custom Lumineers, you’ll return to our dental clinic, so we can place your Lumineers.
Like traditional porcelain veneers, Lumineers can be used to correct and conceal a number of smile flaws, including chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, and deep-set stains. Porcelain veneers are traditionally much thicker, so they can be used to safely and effectively repair more advanced cosmetic flaws. The much thinner Lumineers may not be the ideal solution to enhance smiles with more extensive irregularities, but they can address many of the cosmetic concerns that are corrected with traditional veneers. Before recommending Lumineers, we’ll need to examine your smile during a consultation. During this appointment, we’ll do our best to help you.
Following the placement of Lumineers, you can continue to brush and floss regularly.
