Lumineers are similar to veneers but require less preparation and little to no removal of enamel from the surface of the tooth. Both types of veneers cover the visible portions of the teeth, repair imperfections, straighten and lengthen teeth, conceal stains or discoloration, and are naturally stain resistant. However, there are distinct differences between the two types of veneers.
The Lumineer Difference
Lumineers are custom-made like traditional porcelain veneers to fit each individual’s mouth. However, Lumineers are ultra-thin (only about 0.2mm) and highly translucent. This translucence allows them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. They are also very durable and can last up to 20 years.
The procedure takes only two office visits and approximately one hour to place the Lumineers. There is no pain involved in the procedure as the Lumineers are so thin that little to no enamel will need to be removed, completely eliminating the need for needles and local anesthesia. After the procedure, there will be no sensitivity or soreness.
