Lumineers is a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without requiring removal of healthy sensitive tooth structure in most cases (unlike traditional veneers).
Lumineers can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain. This revolutionary porcelain is crafted through a proprietary process unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studios owned by Den-Mat Corporation. In just two or three visits to our office, we can provide a custom-made smile clinically proven to last over 20 years.
What makes Lumineers® porcelain veneers different from other veneers?
Lumineers are porcelain veneers that offer the way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile without shots, drilling or medication in most cases. Our doctor can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to your teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming your teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. Lumineers can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them. And unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact!
The Lumineers Process
To illustrate the Lumineers process, consider these teeth that are stained, slightly misshapen with spaces in-between. An impression is made and the mold is sent to the Cerinate Smile Design Studios where only Lumineers are crafted.
On your next dental visit, our doctor tries in Lumineers to ensure a good fit. Teeth are moderately etched to prepare for placement but there is no removal of sensitive tooth structure, unlike the painful part of traditional veneer techniques. The Lumineers are bonded to natural teeth and set in place with a curing light.
In most cases, in only 2 easy dental visits, you will have a permanently whiter and more beautiful smile without shots, drilling or medication. Click here to learn more about the Lumineers Difference.
