Lumineers are similar to veneers but require less preparation and little to no removal of enamel from the surface of the tooth. Both types of veneers cover the visible portions of the teeth, repair imperfections, straighten and lengthen teeth, conceal stains or discoloration, and are naturally stain resistant. However, there are distinct differences between the two types of veneers.
THE LUMINEER DIFFERENCE
Like traditional veneers, Lumineers are designed to give you a beautiful, natural smile. However, unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers do not require any shots, drilling, or pain. And, most importantly, because no enamel is removed from the teeth Lumineers are reversible! Lumineers are custom-made like traditional porcelain veneers to fit each individual’s mouth. However, Lumineers are ultra-thin (only about 0.2mm) and highly translucent.
