Lumineers have many advantages over traditional veneers. Lumineers are highly translucent, so they replicate the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Unlike other veneers, Lumineers are so thin that little to no enamel removal is needed. Since tooth preparation is usually not needed, temporaries are not necessary with Lumineers. The placement of Lumineers is painless, no shots are required, and placement only takes about an hour. In most cases, Lumineers fit perfectly without shots or tooth reduction. There is generally no post-placement discomfort, so your Lumineers will feel comfortable from the moment our dentist places them. With traditional veneers, tooth enamel is removed so there is room for the veneer. Because of this, veneer placement is irreversible. However, Lumineers do not require tooth reduction, so they can be removed if you wish. Lumineers are durable, lasting over 20 years.
