Transforming your smile couldn’t be any easier.
Are you looking for a non-invasive way to enjoy a more confident smile? Ultra-thin LUMINEERS are custom designed to give you the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way, and unlike traditional veneers, there are no shots, no drilling of sensitive tooth structures and no pain with LUMINEERS. They’re even reversible, so you have nothing to lose and only a beautiful smile to gain.
LUMINEERS and Veneers — What’s the Difference?
There is quite a bit of confusion when it comes to LUMINEERS and veneers. LUMINEERS are actually a type of veneer, but they come with many advantages when you compare them to traditional veneers. Both traditional veneers and LUMINEERS can help to repair minor imperfections in the teeth, like discoloration, misalignment, etc. However, there are a few differences, and it’s important to understand what those differences are before you decide on a treatment option for you
Don’t settle for just any veneers — you deserve the best!
While veneers are wafer-thin, LUMINEERS are even thinner. As you can see in the image above, they are roughly equivalent to the thickness of a contact lens. Even though LUMINEERS are thinner than traditional veneers, they are still durable and stain resistant. Veneers are bonded to the teeth, and in order to make room for the veneer on the surface of the tooth, approximately 0.5 mm of the original tooth will need to be removed. LUMINEERS, on the other hand, are so thin that they don’t require any enamel to be removed, and therefore, they are less invasive, faster to apply and won’t damage your teeth. However, if applied by an inexperienced or unqualified dentist, LUMINEERS can feel bulkier on the teeth than veneers. That’s why it’s important to turn to a dentist you can trust for your LUMINEERS.
Benefits of Veneers:
Dental veneers are super-thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of your smile! Here are just a few of the many benefits of choosing to improve your smile with veneers:
- Veneers are done for a variety of reasons, including correcting discoloration, straightening the appearance and brightening your smile.
- Veneers are tightly bonded to your tooth and are highly resistant to staining from coffee and tea. The result is an aesthetically pleasing and natural smile!
- Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in certain cases.
- Veneers can help with a gap between teeth for many patients.
