If you are looking for effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile, there are many dental devices your dentist may recommend for your particular situation. One of these may be Lumineers. Lumineers are an improved version of veneers that present a wide range of benefits for individuals who want a better-looking smile.


When having your Lumineers positioned, you will experience very little sensitivity or discomfort. Their installation also requires no administering of anesthesia. If you have no oral health issues, such as periodontal disease or cavities, the positioning of the Lumineers can be completed with just two visits to the dentist. Depending on the condition of your teeth, it may or may not be necessary to reduce the tooth by a minimal amount to install Lumineers. Your dentist will not have to provide you with awkward and temporary acrylics to wear while your Lumineers are specially created for your teeth. In many cases, if it was not necessary for any adjustments to be made to the teeth before the Lumineers were positioned, the Lumineers can be reversed.

Better Alternative to Wearing Braces

If you have front teeth that are slightly out of alignment and would prefer not to endure wearing braces and the hassles they can cause, Lumineers may be the ideal solution for you. Lumineers can help close gaps between your teeth and make your teeth appear more uniform in size. They can also help with fixing teeth that are chipped, worn down, broken or that have an irregular shape.

Efficient and Convenient Construction

Lumineers are digitally constructed so that they can provide you with a more natural-looking smile than you would have if you used some other dental cosmetic. They are made of Cerniate porcelain, and at about 0.2 millimeters thick, they are much thinner than traditional porcelain veneers and will not add any bulk to your teeth. They are lightweight and will not result in any discomfort when they are positioned onto your teeth. Their composition also allows them to resist cracking and leakage better than regular porcelain veneers. Also, despite their lightweight construction, Lumineers are just as durable as traditional porcelain veneers and are expected to last at least two decades.

No Recovery Time

The positioning of the Lumineers is conducted without extensive surgeries, drilling or significant alterations to your teeth. Because of the relatively hassle-free installation of Lumineers, you will be able to avoid the painful recovery time that many dental cosmetic procedures would cause.

Permanently Eliminates the Problem of Discolored Teeth

Discoloration and staining of teeth can be an issue, and while teeth whitening is very effective, it may not be able to eliminate all of the stains on your natural teeth and may not last very long. With Lumineers, you will instantly have a brighter smile that will last for a long time, regardless of what you drink or eat.
