Difference between Lumineers and Veneers

Our cosmetic dentist combines years of experience in placing dental veneers with a caring attitude. Our dentist wants you to have the very best results possible with your dental veneers.

 

Porcelain veneers are often used to cover unsightly, stained, or crooked teeth. They give a beautiful, uniform appearance to your smile and are resistant to staining and other problems.

 

However, extensive work is sometimes needed to prepare your teeth for regular veneers. Because of their thickness, enamel must be ground from the tooth surface to allow for the width of the veneer. This means that your original enamel will be permanently damaged, so the process is irreversible.

 

On the other hand, Lumineers are the very thinnest veneers available. Because they are so thin, usually extensive grinding is not necessary as with regular dental veneers. This means you can have the veneers removed, if you choose, at some point and retain your original tooth enamel.

 

Teeth whitening is a popular alternate option for a whiter and more brilliant smile, but the effects are not particularly long-lasting. With Lumineers, however, you can obtain a permanently white smile, giving you a beautiful appearance and loads of self-confidence.
