Lumineers Q & A

What are Lumineers®?

Lumineers® are very thin veneers, coverings that are applied to the surface of your teeth to correct cosmetic issues like staining, cracks, pits or uneven tooth edges. They're made of durable material that's much thinner than traditional porcelain veneers.

What happens during the Lumineers® procedure?

The Lumineers® process usually takes two visits. During the first visit, a very small amount of tooth material may be removed or etched to make room for the veneer, and an impression will be made and sent to the lab for fabrication. At the second visit, the Lumineers® veneer will be placed on your tooth using a very strong adhesive.

Are Lumineers® better than other types of veneers?

Because they're thinner than traditional dental veneers, Lumineers® can more accurately mimic the translucency of tooth enamel, so they can look just like the natural enamel layer of your teeth. Plus, because they're so thin, they don't require removal of as much tooth material as traditional porcelain veneers, which means they can be removed in the future if you change your mind. Traditional veneers can be removed, but they must be replaced with a new veneer to keep the tooth protected. Lumineers® tend to be more costly than regular porcelain veneers.

How long do Lumineers® last?

Lumineers® can last well over a decade as long as they're properly cared for with regular brushing and flossing and routine trips to the dentist's office to ensure they're in good shape. It's also a good idea to avoid chewing on hard foods like ice and hard candy (good advice for all your teeth). Although they're designed to resist stains, you also may want to avoid foods that stain or to follow up with brushing or rinsing to ensure your Lumineers® look great for many years to come.
