What are Lumineers ?

Lumineers are a kind of thin veneer by Cerinate, to keep it simple.

Just like regular veneers, the Lumineers can change your like completely if you have esthetic problems like discolored teeth, teeths with large unestethic restorations, flourosis discolored teeth, teeth with gaps etc etc.

The difference between regular veneers and Lumineers is that Lumineers are made from a special patented Cerinate porcelain that is so strong than traditional laboratory-fabricated veneers but thin as contact lenses.

The main advantage of the Lumineers is that minimal tooth preparation is necessary. To keep it simple, very little - if any - of your natural tooth enamel needs to be removed before bonding the Lumineers over your natural teeth.

In the end, Lumineers are often reversible, since your tooth structure is left almost intact, unlike traditional veneers, where a significant amount of your tooth structure may need to be removed, almost everytime the drilling reachsthe dentin.
