What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a proprietary brand of porcelain veneers. Traditional veneers are about the size of a fingernail, but ultra thin Lumineers are only the size of a contact lens. Cosmetic dentistry patients who might have traditionally chosen a porcelain veneer may want to consider Lumineers instead, as they allow patients to maintain the optimum amount of healthy tooth structure while completely transforming the smile.

The Lumineers Process

Lumineers are placed in two appointments. During the initial visit, we may need to remove a very small amount of tooth enamel from the front facing surfaces of teeth. Then, we capture impressions of the prepared teeth that will be used by a trusted Lumineer certified lab to create your custom cosmetic solution. Once we receive the final product from our lab, you’ll return to have the flawless Lumineer placed. It really is that simple.

Who Should Consider Lumineers?

Patients with numerous chips, cracks, stains, or gaps who want to seamlessly transform their smiles should consider Lumineers. Every patient is unique, so we will need to examine your smile and help you make the right choice for your unique situation. To give you an idea of how we can use Lumineers to improve the appearance of your smile, review the following examples of patients who select Lumineer treatment:
