Lumineers are an ultra-thin form of dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin caps that fit directly over your teeth to hide problem areas such as chips, cracks, and discolorations. Dental veneers may even be used to partially reconstruct damaged teeth or to solve minor orthodontic issues such as gaps in the smile. Our dentist can help you decide if dental veneers are the right solution for your dental problems.
Lumineers are different from other dental veneers because they are much thinner and require far less filing or grinding of the tooth enamel before placement. With most other veneers, the patient’s teeth must be ground significantly to account for the thickness of the veneer covering. This means that if the patient decides to have the veneers removed at some point, new veneers must be placed immediately to cover the damage to the teeth.
Lumineers, on the other hand, can often be placed with little to no preparatory work because of their extreme thinness. Patients are able to have Lumineers placed quickly and easily and without violating the integrity of the original tooth enamel. Because so little preparatory work is involved, most patients with Lumineers spend far less time in the dentist’s chair than those opting for other veneer treatments.
Lumineers give patients a beautiful, even smile without resorting to extensive cosmetic dentistry. These dental veneers will last for years with proper care and maintenance. Although any dental veneers can stain or crack, Lumineers are extremely resistant to chipping, fading, and discoloration. If you take care of your teeth properly with daily hygiene including brushing and flossing, regular dental checkups and cleanings, and avoidance of staining foods and beverages, there is no reason you cannot enjoy your Lumineers for years to come.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
