Can LUMINEERS or veneers help me?

LUMINEERS and veneers are well-suited for a number of different types of patients. If you are someone who wants to close gaps between your teeth, lengthen short enamel, cover dental damage, or straighten the appearance of crooked or crowded teeth, then you may want to talk to your dentist about veneers or LUMINEERS. The primary requirement of treatment is that your underlying dental structure be healthy enough to support the restorations.

How do LUMINEERS and veneers differ?

While both LUMINEERS and veneers are crafted from thin porcelain, LUMINEERS are made from a type called Cerinate porcelain. Cerinate is stronger than standard porcelain, which means that we can craft LUMINEERS to be even thinner than veneers.

How long does treatment take?

Generally speaking, it takes only two or three appointments to have veneers or LUMINEERS placed. Considering that these treatments can deliver complete smile transformations, this is one of the most quick and convenient options around.

How high-maintenance are these restorations?

Once your veneers or LUMINEERS are in place, you’ll find that they fit in seamlessly with your day to day life. You’ll be able to eat and drink your favorite things, and care for your smile as you normally do. Plus, the porcelain used to craft these restorations is resistant to staining!

Why do patients choose LUMINEERS and veneers?

There are a few key reasons that people pick LUMINEERS and veneers over other aesthetic options. The speed with which you can transform your smile is definitely a factor. Additionally, these treatments are quite versatile, with just one aesthetic solution you can cover dental staining, damage, and alignment issues.
