Traditional porcelain veneers are bonded over teeth and require dentists to prepare the tooth by reshaping and removing the structure. 0.5mm of the tooth must be filed away before the veneer can be installed. Though this process offers a “permanent” cosmetic solution, it is a long process that may require shots or anesthesia for sensitivity and pain. Some patients may be uncomfortable with the extensive procedures required to install porcelain veneers. Luckily, Lumineers present an alternative that requires little to no preparation. LUMINEERS are so ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. And they typically last as long as porcelain veneers.
LUMINEERS placement is quick and painless, there are no shots, and no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. They’re even reversible and last over 20 years. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means LUMINEERS will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
