What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a brand of dental veneers developed by DenMat® that offer patients an advanced alternative to traditional veneers. But what are lumineers made of? Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are used to conceal minor imperfections and create a cohesive smile. The shells are bonded to the front of teeth for a secure, comfortable fit. Lumineers are specially designed to be exceptionally thin to mimic the appearance of enamel. This allows patients to achieve lifelike results that are virtually undetectable.
Benefits of Lumineers
This virtually painless cosmetic procedure is very versatile, allowing patients to achieve several aesthetic goals at once. Like traditional porcelain veneers, Lumineers can be used to conceal:
- Slight misalignment
- Small chips
- Minor cracks
- Stubborn staining
For some patients, these porcelain veneers can even act as an alternative to other cosmetic dental procedures, such as orthodontic treatments and teeth whitening. This is possible because veneers are custom-made to match the rest of you teeth including the shape, color, and size.
The Treatment Process
Our doctors can provide your Lumineers in just two short visits to our office. During your first appointment, we will discuss your aesthetic goals to ensure that porcelain veneers are the best solution for you. We will ask about your vision for your smile and we can advise you on shape, length, color, and other factors to ensure you are satisfied with your final veneers.
Our lumineers doctors can work with you to create personally designed Lumineers so you can dramatically transform your smile.
Using advanced CEREC® technology, we can take digital impressions to create your custom-made Lumineers. Digital impressions allow us to create an accurate image of your bite structure while creating a more comfortable experience for our patients. This information will be sent to a trusted offsite lab that has been specially approved by DenMat to produce Lumineers that meet their standards. This ensures that our patients will always receive the highest quality product.
Typically, patients can expect their finalized porcelain veneers to be ready for placement within a few weeks. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers generally require little to no alteration to your teeth for a completely reversible treatment. For most patients, your doctor will be able to easily slide your veneers over your teeth and secure them with dental cement for long-lasting results.
