Lumineers are a type of porcelain veneers created by the Den-Mat Corporation. They are no thicker than a contact lens. But, Lumineers are extra strong and require very little to no drilling before bonding to your teeth. Highly trained cosmetic dentists, like Dr. Blaine McLaughlin and Dr. Meghan Mueller (Nelson), is your best choice when considering Lumineers. They have to be specially designed for the shape of your face. The color has to be carefully selected and handled to give you your best smile.
Thinking About Lumineers?
If you’re wondering whether Lumineers or other porcelain veneers are right for you, here are some things to think about.
- Lumineers are as thin as contact lenses, about .2mm.
- In most cases you will need little or no tooth reduction.
- You will not need anesthetics or numbing shots during application.
- No need for temporary veneers while the Lumineers are being created.
There are some downsides to Lumineers. Some patients say they look and feel bulky, likely because there is little to no tooth reduction done before they are applied.
Overall, Lumineers are becoming more popular as patients weigh the advantages and disadvantages. But they won’t work for everyone. That’s why you need qualified cosmetic dentists like Dr. Blaine McLaughlin or Dr. Meghan Mueller (Nelson) to evaluate your needs and make a skilled, professional recommendation that’s right for you.
When considering Lumineers, you want to find a dentist with extensive cosmetic dentistry experience, not just a two-day course on the product.
