Luminers

Lumineers are a special ultra-thin veneer.Just like traditional veneers,lumineers can be used to remodel your smile by filling gaps and covering up worn down or discoloured teeth.

What is the difference between lumineers and the more traditional veneers?

Lumineers are made from a special patented cerinate porcelain.This is much stronger than the more frequently used veneers.Lumineers are as thin as contact lenses and less preparation of the tooth is required.Sometimes no preparation is needed before bonding this ultra-thin veneers in place.If tooth shaving or grinding is needed it is very minimal.Because of the lack of prepartation this procedure is reversable if needed,unlike traditional veneers that have to remove a significant amount of natural tooth before bonding.
