What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are veneers made of a porcelain patented by Cerinate.  Cerinate has developed contact-lens-thin porcelain technology that provides beauty and strength, while preserving your natural tooth structure.  That means you can correct a wide variety of unsightly dental distortions or conditions and remove little or no tooth structure.  When little or no tooth structure has to be removed, the Lumineers can be custom fabricated for you without the use of needles or drilling.

Lumineers can be used to correct tooth discoloration, noticeable gaps, permanent stains, broken or misshapen teeth, and Lumineers can even bond to existing crowns and bridgework without having to replace them.  You can fix uneven spacing, lengthen short teeth, and reshape awkward teeth.

Lumineers are thin porcelain shields that are bonded to the front of your teeth to create dramatic changes in your smile.

Lumineers aren’t appropriate for every person wanting to transform their smile with veneers.  In some instances we have to remove tooth structure from some or all of the teeth that are being veneered in order to create a harmonious result.  In such a case, Lumineers are not the best option for you, necessarily.  Other dental porcelains may be better suited to get to your beautiful smile.

Typically Lumineers require two dental visits just as other veneers do.  Placement of the Lumineers usually is one hour.

Long-term clinical research with Lumineers by Cerinate (over 20 years) shows 100% retention with no discoloration.
