Lumineers are unique ultra-thin and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. While traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.

Lumineers are dental veneers made of unique porcelain known as Cerinate. LLC that allows the patient to easily remove the veneers due to the lack of modification required to the tooth to apply the veneer. Although some etching does occur in the procedure, there is no local anesthesia required in the procedure to apply Lumineers, due to lack of shaving required in other dental veneer procedures. The Lumineers name also applies to crowns known as Lumineers 360 Full Coverage Crowns that use the same Cerinate porcelain and thin design to create minimally invasive crowns.
Lumineers are custom-designed for each patient and placed by dentists.
Veneers were considered to be a more conservative treatment approach. Technology of bonding porcelain to enamel created the possibility of porcelain veneers as an alternative to the use of full crowns for the treatment of many clinical conditions.
Although this may be technically true, in actuality, the trend in conventional veneer procedures is to use very aggressive tooth reduction similar to that of three quarter crown preparations.
Fortunately, a truly conservative approach to veneers with many substantial advantages has been developed: LUMINEERS.
What are Lumineers made of?
Lumineers are fabricated from Cerinate porcelain, a patented formulation of leucite-reinforced feldspar. This material has been used in cosmetic dentistry for more than 15 years.
Lumineers are installed by a dentist, typically the one who orders them. They can be installed one at a time, or the dentist can use the LumiTray which is a dental tray in which 6-10 veneers are pre-placed by the lab in order to facilitate the placement of multiple veneers at once.
Mainly, only two visits are necessary for installation but of course it will depend on the case. No shots or anesthetic is required; no post-operative sensitivity has been reported. Lumineers straightening properties serve as a viable alternative to braces. Lumineers can be placed over crowns and over dental bridges.
Is the Lumineers procedure painful?
The Lumineers procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
Why select Lumineers for your smile makeover?
Do you want your favorite celebrity smile? Your smile may look pretty good, but you want one even better? A LUMINEERS specialist at Lounge Clinic will evaluate your smile and desires and will help you achieve the look you want with no pain, shots, drilling or removal of sensitive tooth structure.
It is a tremendous advantage as well to avoid the great psychological reluctance to having one's teeth substantially cut down. It is very comforting for the patient to know that their natural teeth remain intact.
Although not likely, patients could go back to their original dentition because the no prep technique is reversible. Alternatively, after a tooth is prepared, it is irreversible.
How are Lumineers different from traditional veneers?
Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. While traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist water and remain resilient to last over 20 years
1- Little or no preparation of the teeth:
In many cases, there is literally no preparation of the teeth, The no prep technique was made possible by advances in custom-designed bonding systems and in porcelain technology that allow exceptionally thin veneers because of new exceptionally high strength porcelain. The lumineers can be made with thicknesses in the range of 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm or "contact lens-thin". The lumineers can be simply bonded to the surfaces of the teeth with an excellent cosmetic result and with no problem of awareness of thickness by the patient.
Furthermore, there is no problem with the emergence profile. Finishing and contouring in the gingival region can be easily accomplished when the bonding system is integrated to the porcelain.
2- No need for local anesthetic injections and no need for temporary restorations:
No usage of injections will simplify and expedites the clinical procedure and achieves the desirable goal of preserving natural tooth structure. From the patient's perspective, the absence of shots or drilling makes the procedure much more pleasant, and removes a large barrier for individuals with phobias of dental treatments.
