Lumineers® is a veneer brand utilized in cosmetic dentistry. Having knowledge of Lumineers® will require first taking a look at veneers. Veneers are a kind of tooth covering which is bonded to an individual’s teeth to improve his/her smile. For instance, veneers may be used by our Florida Porcelain Veneers office to cover misshapen, discolored, overly large, overly small, damages, or crooked teeth, permitting an individual to have a more uniform, whiter smile.

The Lumineers® veneer brand is made by Den-Mat Corporation. They’re made out of a patented kind of porcelain referred to as Cerinate®, considered extremely strong. Due to its strength, it may be altered to become an extremely thin material. As a matter of fact, this veneer brand might be as thin as .007”.
Oftentimes, discussions of Lumineers® involve a comparison to additional kinds of veneers, called traditional porcelain veneers. Usually, such veneers are at least around .01” thick. As such, they might be considered a more challenging choice in cosmetic dentistry. For instance, with traditional veneers, it might be necessary to drill an individual’s teeth to fit the veneers without having to make the altered teeth look too strange or bulky; it’s because the veneers are so very thick. However, with Lumineers®, the veneers are a lot thinner and might not require any drilling, whatsoever; they’re made to fit without having to grind away the surface of the tooth.
Lumineers® veneers often are marketed as cosmetic dentistry that is painless. Since there often isn’t need to drill or grind an individual’s teeth down to apply them, there might not be a need for a numbing or anesthetic needle. For most people, that means a painless experience in cosmetic dentistry.
Also, Lumineers® might provide other benefits over traditional veneers. This brand of veneers, according to its manufacturers, resists micro-cracking and leaking to a greater extent than traditional veneers will. Unlike with traditional choices, an individual doesn’t have to wear temporary veneers as they’re created. Also, they might cost less than traditional veneers yet last just as long.
It’s worth stating that these veneers don’t always provide for a no-reduction, no-drilling experience. It depends upon the special needs of a patient and condition of his or her teeth. In some instances, reduction might be needed, even with this veneer brand.
