What are Lumineers ?
Lumineers are porcelain veneers that are wafer-thin, just like contact lenses, and are fixed over the original teeth without necessitating the reduction of vulnerable tooth structure (not like traditional veneers). They are ultra-thin, (approximately 0.2 mm) custom-made shells that are translucent, making them look very close to the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Lumineers are a pain-free, long-term cosmetic solution for blemished, chipped, stained, or crooked teeth. Lumineers are the #1 patient-requested veneer system in the world but its popularity has mostly been overseas, mostly in the USA until a few years back as now it is in big demand in the UK too.
Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain and typically involves the placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers, so make sure you consult with a Certified Lumineers Dentist.
