Not All Veneers Are Made the Same. Accept No Imitations.
Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. Traditional veneers extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain, and typically involves placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, youâ€™ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers.
- Q: How are Lumineers different from traditional veneers?
A: Lumineers are exceptional in that they are very thin (about 0.2 mm) and translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of tooth enamel. While standard dental veneers are thicker, requiring the irreversible grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is required. Lumineers are durable allowing them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.
- Q: Is the Lumineers procedure painful?
A: Rest assured, the Lumineers procedure is a completely painless way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are very thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without anesthetic shots or grinding down of the original tooth. Once the Lumineers procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity. Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
- Q: Are there any other Lumineers?
A: No. Lumineers are exclusive, one-of-a-kind products of the DenMat Lab at DenMat, one of the nation's largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.
- Q: I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive process. Can I get Lumineers instead?
A: In most cases, yes! Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, Lumineers will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you donâ€™t get with braces.
- Q: How long will Lumineers last?
A: Clinical testing has proven that a Lumineers smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years.
- Q: How long does the procedure take?
A: The Lumineers process takes only 2 visits to your dentist and the placement of Lumineers on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.
- Q: Whatâ€™s involved with a Lumineers procedure?
A: On the first visit, your dentist will create a precise mold. Then you and your dentist will determine the shade of white that is right for you. After your first visit, your dentist will send the mold off to the DenMat Lab for your custom Lumineers to be created. With Lumineers , you donâ€™t have to wear temporaries. When your dentist receives your custom Lumineers , they are checked for fit and shade. Then during your second visit, your Lumineers are painlessly applied without shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure. And youâ€™re ready to start smiling out loud!
- Q: With Lumineers, can I still chew gum and eat my favorite sticky foods?
A: Drink and eat what you want with confidence because Lumineers are applied in the most durable way possible. However, Lumineers donâ€™t replace good hygiene, so you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning to keep your Lumineers looking their best and the rest of your teeth and gums healthy.
- Q: Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?
A: Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because thereâ€™s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure, in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.
- Q: How long have Lumineers been around?
A: Lumineers have been improving smiles for over 30 years. More than 13,000 dentists nationwide recommend Lumineers, and over one million units have been placed. Many celebrities have transformed their smiles with Lumineers, but youâ€™d never know because they look so naturally beautiful.
