It takes only two easy visits to bring out your beautiful smile. During your first visit, a precision mold will be taken. We will guide you in choosing the right shade for your new, permanently white smile. On your second visit, your custom designed Lumineers are checked for fit and shade. Then, they’re painlessly attached.
That’s it – a healthy, natural, permanently white smile you’ve always wanted in only two visits.
How are LUMINEERS different from traditional veneers?
Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. While traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.
Is the LUMINEERS procedure painful?
Rest assured, the Lumineers procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
How long will LUMINEERS last?
Clinical testing has proven that a Lumineers smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years.
How long does the procedure take?
The Lumineers process takes only two visits to your dentist and the placement of Lumineers on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.
Can LUMINEERS be taken off if I want them removed?
Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.
How much are LUMINEERS?
In most cases, the cost of Lumineers is less than the cost of traditional veneers. Lumineers cost is in the range of $600 – $1,200, but it all depends on the current state of your teeth and your aesthetic goals. It is best to get a thorough evaluation so we can determine if Lumineers are right for you and what the total cost would be.
