Find out a new type of dental veneers - lumineers. Find out the latest information on this topic.


lumineersThere is a new, pain-free option to help you get a great looking smile. Lumineers are porcelain coverings which are made from Cerinate - a patented type of porcelain - applied straight to your teeth. In contrast to porcelain veneers, your dentist can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding. Besides, they can be applied without the use of anesthesia, in such a way no shots are required.

Porcelain veneers are also known as "dental porcelain laminates”. These are wafer-thin shells which attach to teeth. Before attaching usual veneers your dentist has to grind down sensitive tooth structure for a good fit. They are permanent, custom-shaped and require the removal of roughly .5 mm of the original tooth to create space for the new veneer.

Lumineers laminates are thinner (.2mm); roughly the thickness of a contact-lens. The original tooth structure needn't be shaped for placement and, if desired, Lumineers can be removed. In contrast to other porcelain veneers, you won't need to wear temporary veneers until the Lumineers are produced. Lumineers last just as long as traditional porcelain veneers and normally cost less than traditional dental laminates.

Lumineers and traditional porcelain laminates can strengthen, lengthen and shape your teeth. They can be used to correct minor tooth defects. They are stain proof, natural in appearance, and highly resilient. This procedure does not hurt; it is fast, and in most cases, affordable.

Lumineers is very comfortable and time-saving option for adult people who are thinking about braces. If you have easy bite problem, Lumineers will change the shape of your teeth and make them look straighter and more uniform.

There are some disadvantages of Lumineers exist. As there is little to no tooth reduction needed for Lumineer porcelain veneers, there is a limit to how much smile correction can be accomplished. This can also result in bulky appearing and feeling veneers in some cases. Also, if you suffer from bruxism, clenching or grinding of your teeth, veneers can be damaged, chipped or cracked.
