What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are extremely thin porcelain veneers, about 0.2mm, that are designed to cover dental imperfections without damaging your natural teeth. There is little to no prep required for these veneers, so generally, no enamel will have to be removed before the veneers are placed. Lumineers are custom-made to fit your mouth the best and give you a natural appearance. Lumineer veneers can help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile in just a few easy steps.

How can I know if Lumineers are right for me?

Lumineers can give you a huge improvement in your overall smile without having prep time, recovery time, or a long process. These veneers are great if you want a dramatic enhancement of your smile without having to shave down your enamel. Lumineers can treat many issues such as:

  • Discolored teeth

  • Misshapen teeth

  • Crooked or crowded teeth

  • Tooth length

  • Other minor dental issues

Before treatment for Lumineers can begin, your teeth and gums will need to be free of decay and infection. These veneers may not be the best option for you if you grind or clench your teeth on a regular basis.

What is the process for getting Lumineers?

Getting Lumineers is a two-visit process that is not painful or uncomfortable. Lumineers are an aesthetic restoration, meaning our team does not have to remove any of your tooth or enamel and local anesthetics are not required. Our team will take an impression of your mouth at your first appointment. These impressions will be used to create your personalized veneers. About 2 weeks after this visit your Lumineers will be ready and you can come back for a second and final appointment. At this appointment, your Lumineers will be placed.

What should I know about Lumineers?

Lumineers have no recovery period and are considered noninvasive. After your Lumineers are placed, you should be able to eat or drink anything you want as these veneers are stain-resistant. However, you should avoid hard food that can damage your veneers. This means you should not chew or bite on things such as ice, fingernails, pens, pencils, and others. A good oral hygiene routine can help to keep your Lumineers and your natural teeth in good condition. This routine should include:

  • Brushing at least twice a day

  • Flossing

  • Using mouthwash

  • Attending dental exams and cleanings twice a year
