Lumineers are thin, custom-made veneers that are bonded to the front of your teeth. When bonded, lumineers are essentially undetectable and are only 0.2 millimeters thick. Lumineers are extremely strong and can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials.
Because they are so thin, they often require little to no preparation of the natural tooth or shaving down of your teeth beforehand for placement. Lumineers do require a small amount of enamel to be taken off; however, the process is much gentler than a traditional veneer process. Lumineers are a good option for fixing stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. They are also ideal for closing small gaps between teeth.
In general, Lumineers are a great option for patients seeking a less invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure with fewer risks and side effects. They are typically made of porcelain or tooth-colored material and do not require extensive shaping or grinding beforehand.
Lumineers typically require little to no removal of healthy tooth material compared to the traditional method, which involves the removal of a significant amount of tooth material. This typically means less discomfort and a shorter recovery time.
Here are the major advantages offered by lumineers:
A dental professional can place lumineers during a single appointment. The dentist first prepares the teeth by buffing them. A dental impression is taken of the prepped teeth and sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication. The dental lab creates the lumineers, and the process is completed by the dentist bonding the lumineers to the teeth.
