Cosmetic dentistry

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a thinner, more advanced version of traditional dental veneers. Lumineers are as thin as a contact lens and can be placed in just two visits to the dentist. However, lumineers still offer the aesthetically pleasing look that one would get from dental veneers. Lumineers are made from cerinate porcelain, which is known for its strength. This porcelain is also designed to be color-modified and balanced to provide a look that is natural-looking and comfortable.

Benefits of Lumineers

Because Lumineers are made from Cerinate porcelain, they are less likely to chip or break than traditional veneers. Despite being as thin as a contact, Lumineers are designed to last up to 20 years. In addition to this, the thinness also allows for the Lumineers to be placed with little effect on chewing and speaking. Unlike traditional veneers which require drilling and shaving on underlying healthy teeth, Lumineers require almost no work prior to placement. This means that you can choose.

The Process

At your first visit, an impression of your teeth and x-rays will be taken in order to determine how your teeth fit together in your mouth.

This information will then be sent off, and the Lumineers will be placed during the second visit.
