Lumineers Q & A

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are the “next generation” in tooth veneers, providing a thin layer of tooth-colored material on the surface of your teeth to cover stains, discoloration, cracks, chips and many other imperfections for a more beautiful, more healthy-looking smile you can be proud of.

How are Lumineers different from other veneers?

Before any veneer can be applied, some of the tooth surface must be removed so there's enough space to comfortably accommodate the thickness of the veneer and to help the veneer “stick” to the tooth's surface. Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers, which means you don't have to have as much tooth material removed before having them applied. They're also amazingly natural-looking, and they can be applied without the need for anesthesia. Plus, they don't require you to wear temporary veneers while your new veneers are being made.

How are Lumineers applied?

First, your teeth will be gently etched so they're ready to accept the Lumineer's special bonding agent. Then, the ultra-thin Lumineer is placed on the surface of your tooth and a specially-designed light is used to harden and “cure” the veneer with the adhesive so it attaches properly to your tooth surface. That's all there is to it. And because the treatment is so simple, most patients have little to no sensitivity during or immediately following treatment.

Do Lumineers require special care?

No, you care for your teeth just as you would your other teeth, with regular brushing, flossing and checkups to maintain good health. It's important to note that while all veneers are designed to resist staining, you may want to avoid foods that have caused stains on your natural teeth in the past and rinse after consuming them.

How long will they last?

The company that manufactures Lumineers offers a five-year warranty, but clinical trials indicate Lumineers can last as long as 20 years.
