Veneers & Lumineers​

Veneers & Lumineers

Veneers and Lumineers (which are a brand of veneers) are solutions to broken or discolored teeth to restore a glossy, white color for a beautiful smile. Veneers and Lumineers will give you instant cosmetic improvement and will also help prevent future issues.

The Difference Between Veneers and Lumineers

Veneers are made of porcelain and are permanently bonded to your teeth through a process that usually takes 2-3 weeks. Once bonded, veneers give you immediate cosmetic improvement and also are resistant to stains, meaning your white, glossy teeth will last a long time.

Lumineers are not permanent, which is one main difference. Also, Lumineers are made of an ultra-thin laminate rather than porcelain. Lumineers are thinner and less expensive, but they won’t last as long as veneers.

Should I get veneers or Lumineers?

We’ll discuss the best solution for you if you look like a candidate for veneers or Lumineers. There’s a lot to consider:

  • Veneers are permanent, Lumineers are semi-permanent
  • Veneers are porcelain, Lumineers are ultra-thin laminate
  • Veneers are better at hiding a broken or severely discolored tooth
  • Lumineers are less expensive
  • Veneers last longer and resist stains better
  • Lumineers can be done in a much quicker time
  • Lumineers don’t require any tooth grinding

There are pros and cons to both veneers and lumineers, and while it may appear confusing at first, your specific situation will guide us toward a recommended solution.
