That’s why Lumineers is the #1 patient-requested veneer system in the world.

Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and 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 shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers, so make sure you consult with a Certified Lumineers Dentist.

Lumineers Solve a Variety of Dental Problems to Give You the Perfect Smile in Just 2 Easy Visits.

Whether your teeth are discolored or chipped, or moderately crooked, Lumineers is likely a perfect solution for you. Take this quick and easy self-assessment. Look through the indications below to see if you might be a candidate for treatment. Only a Certified Lumineers Dentist can truly determine if you are a candidate for Lumineers. Contact your dentist or find a local Certified Lumineers Provider today.

Brighten Stained and Discolored Teeth…Permanently

Staining and discoloration are common problems. Teeth whitening is a common option, but may not eliminate all the stains, or last very long. Lumineers provide a long-lasting white smile, no matter what you eat or drink! Whether the stains are caused by time, drinking coffee or red wine, or by tetracycline staining, Lumineers can transform your smile with a permanently bright and natural look.

Restore Chipped Teeth

Do you have a chip on one of your teeth? Is it right in the front where everyone can see? Lumineers offer a painless and pleasant way to fix your chipped tooth for good.

Eliminate Spacing and Gaps

Is there a gap between your front teeth or some other spacing problem that you wish you didn’t have? Lumineers is a fast, non-invasive procedure for eliminating gaps between teeth. In just 2 short visits to your dentist, these ultra-thin “smile shapers” will eliminate excess space, while keeping your original teeth intact.

Align Crooked Teeth

Lumineers provide a painless, fast alternative to braces that offers a perfectly-aligned look along with a beautiful smile. Despite the fact that braces are readily available for adults, most do not want to endure the pain and suffering, or the embarrassment. Now you can have a completely corrected smile, in just 2 short visits to your dentist, with Lumineers—an ideal alternative to orthodontics.

Reshape Small or Misshapen Teeth

Misshapen teeth can really detract from your appearance. You’ve probably been reluctant to have a traditional veneer procedure for fear that your teeth will be ground down. Not with Lumineers. Ultra-thin Lumineers are simply placed over your original teeth, and in most cases don’t require the removal of any sensitive tooth structure.

Renew Old Dental Work

No matter your age, old crowns and bridgework add many years to your face. Lumineers can easily be placed on top of crowns and bridgework to give you a beautiful smile—painlessly.

How are Lumineers different from traditional veneers?

Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. While traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.

Is the Lumineers procedure painful?

Rest assured, the Lumineers procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. 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.

Are there any other Lumineers?

No. Lumineers are exclusive, one-of-a-kind products of the DenMat Lab at DenMat, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.

I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive process. Can I get Lumineers instead?

In most cases, yes! Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, Lumineers will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don’t get with braces.

How long will Lumineers last?

Clinical testing has proven that a Lumineers smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years.

How long does the procedure take?

The Lumineers process takes only 2 visits to your dentist and the placement of Lumineers on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.

What’s involved with a Lumineers procedure?

On the first visit, your dentist will create a precise mold. Then you and your dentist will determine the shade of white that is right for you. After your first visit, your dentist will send the mold off to the DenMat Lab for your custom Lumineers to be created. With Lumineers , you don’t have to wear temporaries. When your dentist receives your custom Lumineers , they are checked for fit and shade. Then during your second visit, your Lumineers are painlessly applied without shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure. And you’re ready to start smiling out loud!

With Lumineers, can I still chew gum and eat my favorite sticky foods?

Drink and eat what you want with confidence because Lumineers are applied in the most durable way possible. However, Lumineers don’t replace good hygiene, so you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning to keep your Lumineers looking their best and the rest of your teeth and gums healthy.

Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?

Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure, in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.

How long have Lumineers been around?

Lumineers have been improving smiles for over 30 years. More than 13,000 dentists nationwide recommend Lumineers, and over one million units have been placed. Many celebrities have transformed their smiles with Lumineers, but you’d never know because they look so naturally beautiful.

Homecare:  Lumineers

The secret to enjoying lumineers/ veneers for so many years is making sure that they are properly cared for. With proper care, you can expect to enjoy many years of beautiful, white smiles. So, here are some care instructions to keep in mind for your new porcelain restorations.

Soft diet is recommended for 24 -48 hours after placement.

Brush and floss – Just as with natural teeth, the key to keeping your lumineers/ veneers looking and feeling good is to maintain a proper oral hygiene regimen. This means that you should brush your teeth regularly and should be sure to floss between teeth as well. This helps to remove particles and bacteria that can damage teeth, as well as the surface of the lumineers/veneers.

Keep to regular dental visits – One of the best ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy, aside from a daily routine of proper oral hygiene, is to visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings (every six months is recommended). This will help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and if there are any stains that begin to show on your lumineers/ veneers, the dentist can address them and work to remove them before they become permanent.

Avoid staining foods and liquids – Over time, foods and beverages with dark hues can stain teeth, whether they are natural or they are covered by lumineers/ veneers, if used repeatedly. Tea, coffee, some types of dark fruit juices, and smoking can cause the surface to stain or dull over time. For the most part, however, lumineers/ veneers are resistant to dulling and staining.

Watch what you bite – Not only do you want to keep your lumineers/ veneers looking bright and white, but you want to make sure they don’t crack or break. The material used to manufacture these lumineers/veneers is very durable, but just like a natural tooth, biting hard objects can result in unwanted damage. So avoid biting or chewing on objects like ice, fingernails, pens and similar items.

With proper care that is virtually no different than caring for natural teeth, patients can enjoy the beauty that lumineers/ veneers offers for years and years to come.

After the cementation of your porcelain restoration, it may take a few days to get used to the new work. Your bite and the way your teeth come together may feel different especially if we changed the length, shape and/or thickness of your teeth. If your bite feels unbalanced, please be sure to call our office for an appointment to make an adjustment.

A mouth guard is recommended following this treatment to prevent damage to dental work.
