They require little to no tooth grinding or reduction compared to other methods.
We color-match the coating to their natural teeth to achieve a natural-looking smile.
Last for a long time
With proper care, Lumineers can last from 10 to 20 years.
These cosmetic coatings are constructed from super-strong, stain-resistant porcelain.
Thanks to developing dental technology, people with discolored, chipped, or stained teeth can restore their smiles. While some procedures like teeth whitening cannot restore some types of discoloration or tooth imperfections, Lumineers® can. These extremely thin dental veneers can fix stained teeth, small gaps, or other minor issues.
Lumineers are dental veneers that adhere to the surface of the teeth' enamel. They consist of cerinate feldspathic pressable porcelain, which is very thin but strong. Patients can opt for this product when the teeth are healthy but cosmetically flawed to achieve a whiter, more perfect smile.
This treatment is ideal for patients with stained or discolored teeth and restores worn-down or chipped teeth. They can also eliminate spaces and gaps and align crooked teeth. Lumineers help brighten smiles that have had no success with professional teeth whitening products. Scottsdale Dental Studio provides Lumineers in Scottsdale and the surrounding area.
● Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers, making them feel lighter and more natural.● Lumineers cannot cover teeth with dramatically dark stains on them as veneers can.
● The process of applying veneers is more lengthy and invasive than for Lumineers.● This modification of teeth makes veneers permanent, while Lumineers are typically removable.
How much do Lumineers cost?
The cost of Lumineers depends on many different factors. The cost will vary depending on how many teeth receive treatment, the size of teeth, and the patient’s oral health. People interested in Lumineers should have a consultation with our team for more information.
Do Lumineers need replacement?
This procedure is a semi-permanent cosmetic tooth restoration. Lumineers can last up to 20 years. Despite being thinner, the cerinate porcelain is stronger and more durable than traditional veneers.
Do I need to change how I eat with Lumineers?
After adjusting to Lumineers for a few days, most patients return to their normal eating routine. Patients do not need to switch to a special diet or change their lifestyle. They should avoid using their teeth to bite down on hard objects or foods that cause cracked teeth.
How do I take care of my teeth with Lumineers?
Taking care of the teeth after getting these veneers is simple. Be sure to make regular appointments twice a year with a dental provider for cleanings and exams. Patients should also practice healthy brushing and flossing habits twice a day.
Can my Lumineers be stained?
Though the porcelain used in these veneers is stain-resistant, it is still possible for them to stain. Smoking may lead to some staining. Additionally, dental providers who use standard teeth cleaning products may inadvertently stain the veneers, so patients should return to the provider who placed the Lumineers for cleanings.
