The Benefits of Lumineer Dental Veneers

Posted in Veneers

Lumineers® are a very thin dental veneer paced on teeth that are chipped, broken or discolored.  They provide a quick, affordable and log lasting solution to patient’s wanting to improve their smile and offer a number of benefits over traditional dental veneers.

One of the major benefits of these veneers is that unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers® only require two visits to complete the process.  During the initial visit, the dentist takes a mold, which is then sent to the lab, where the veneers are custom made for each patient.  Since they are custom made, the dentist can customize the appearance and color of the veneers as well.  In general, the veneers can be made in a couple of weeks and once they arrive, the dentist can usually have the installation done in an hour of less, during the second visit.

Another major benefit of the Lumineer® dental veneer is that there is no prep work required.  Due to their thinness, the patient’s tooth does not need to be ground down.  The dentist simply glues them in place!  In addition to being quicker, this allows the veneers to be removed at some point, which is not possible with traditional veneers.  Lumineers® are long lasting as well, with studies suggesting a lifespan of 20 or more years.

Lumineers® have improved the appearance of hundreds of thousands people’s smiles across the globe and a highly trained dentist, who is certified in their installation, will be able to determine if they are the right dental veneer for you!
