Lumineers

 

Lumineers® are a porcelain veneer option that can whiten and straighten your teeth.
 
Lumineers® are an attractive option since they are very thin and can be used to change the shape and shade of your teeth with minimal preparation to your original teeth. Lumineers® can be custom made and bonded to your natural teeth in just 2 visits to our Las Vegas dentist office.  
 
Like traditional custom porcelain veneers, Lumineers® are designed to treat a number of different dental problems, such as:
 
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
 
Benefits of Lumineers®
Lumineers® offers a number of potential benefits.
 
  • Minimal reshaping of your natural teeth in order to prepare for the  Lumineers® veneers
  • Because they don't require a lot of change to your original teeth, Lumineers® veneers, in most cases, can be completely reversible in some cases.
  • No temporary veneers are needed in the process
  • Lumineers® cover only the visible fronts and bite area of teeth
  • Lumineers® are stain resistant, durable and natural looking
  • Questions About Lumineers®
 
How do Lumineers® differ from traditional veneering procedures?
Porcelain veneers always require a preparation of your natural teeth, whereas Lumineers® typically don't require any reshaping in order to be placed.
 
Is there more than one manufacturer of Lumineers®?
No. Lumineers® are created from patented Cerinate porcelain. The process for their design is only practiced at Den-Mat Corporation, which is one of the largest dental material manufacturers in the United States.
 
What should I expect during my Lumineers® treatment?
Typically, Lumineers® do not require any preparation to be done to your natural teeth. So you are not required to wear any temporary veneers while your permanent Lumineers® are being fabricated. Therefore, the Lumineers® process is very comfortable and convenient. 
 
I really need braces. Are Lumineers® an option instead?
In many cases, Lumineers® are an alternative to the discomfort and embarrassment of traditional braces to straighten your smile. They can also provide better results in less time. Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Arthur Tomaro can perform a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for Lumineers®. If you do not have severe dental problems that require more in-depth correction, Lumineers® can be designed to change the appearance of your teeth so you can enjoy a straighter smile that fits your lifestyle.
