LUMINEERS and Veneers — What’s the Difference?
There is quite a bit of confusion when it comes to understanding the fundamental differences between LUMINEERS and veneers. Both traditional veneers and modern LUMINEERS are made of porcelain, so it’s fair to say that the newer product is a type of veneer. However, when compared to regular porcelain veneers, it becomes clear that LUMINEERS come with many more advantages than traditional methods.
Both traditional veneers and LUMINEERS can help to repair minor imperfections in the teeth, like discoloration, misalignment, irregular gaps, and others. However, there are a few differences, and it’s important to understand what those differences are before deciding on the treatment option that’s right for you.
Don’t settle for just any veneers — you deserve the best from Texarkana Dentist!
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 millimeters 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. So not only are they less invasive, and faster to apply, but you can have the peace of mind of knowing that they 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 extremely important to turn to a dentist you can trust for your LUMINEERS. Texarkana trusts our dental office as a local provider of this service — schedule a dental care appointment with us today and see for yourself the positive difference that LUMINEERS can make!
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers:
Dental veneers are generally manufactured as thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Some, but not all, veneers are made of porcelain, and today, this material is widely considered to be the superior option between the two. Regardless of whether you’ve found optimal satisfaction from ceramic or porcelain veneers, there’s no doubt that either can be an ideal choice for improving the appearance of your smile!
There are many benefits that may result from choosing to get custom veneers, including the following advantageous effects and features:
- Corrected discoloration and overall whiter teeth
- Straighter appearance and reduction of gaps between teeth
- Stain-resistant material holds up against coffee and tea
- Veneers are securely bonded to your teeth to prevent slipping or shifting
- and are highly resistant to staining from coffee and tea.
- Veneers make an excellent alternative to crowns in certain cases.
- A near-permanent solution for a natural-looking and beautiful smile!
