LUMINEERS™ & VENEERS

What Are LUMINEERS™?

LUMINEERS™ are porcelain veneers that can be made as thin as a contact lens and are placed over existing teeth without drilling or requiring removal of tooth structure, in most cases (unlike traditional veneers). LUMINEERS™ are a permanent cosmetic solution for many patients with minor orthodontic problems such as stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

LUMINEERS™ are a great treatment option because they do not require any tooth preparation or drilling so it is, therefore, a reversible treatment. Rather than creating a border or margin that the traditional veneer would sit on, our skilled technicians custom design your ultra-thin LUMINEERS™ to custom-fit so that it can be feathered into the tooth right before the gum line. With this additive the only approach, your LUMINEERS™ will not be bulky or noticeable. 

The LUMINEER™ Advantage

  • A natural cosmetic result that truly mimics the look of your teeth.
  • No drilling or removal of vital tooth structure (in most cases).
  • Notorious for their longevity, LUMINEERS™ are clinically proven to last up to 20 years and include a 5-year warranty!
  • The procedure can be reversed as the tooth structure is left intact after placement (in most cases).
  • In most cases, no anesthesia is needed. 

Maintenance

LUMINEERS™ are durable and easy to care for. Just like your natural teeth, they require a regular oral hygiene regimen and continual visits to your dentists for cleanings and checkups. With LUMINEERS™ you can continue eating and drinking everything you normally did before the procedure!

LUMINEERS™ Are Not An Appropriate Treatment For:

  • Improper tooth positioning
  • Large discrepancies in root position
  • Poor bite relations or poor facial profile
  • Teeth that are large or forward positioned
