LUMINEER VENEERS

What are Lumineer Veneers?

Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and require irreversible removal of the healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique requires anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain, and typically involves placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for anesthesia or temporaries, Lumineers are an ultra-thin, translucent shells that change the tooth shape and size. This brand of veneers requires little or no tooth preparation, so no numbing is required, and you won’t need temporaries at all.

Veneers are mostly use:

  • To close the tooth gaps
  • To make the tooth whiter

Although composite material can be also used for veneers, we don’t recommend it, as they do not last as long as porcelain / E-Max /Zirconia, and over time they will become stained.

We would recommend Lumineers Veneers as they are guaranteed for 5 years and if maintained correctly will last a lifetime.
