What's the difference between Lumineers® and veneers?
Lumineers are designed to deliver a beautiful smile transformation with a simple, painless procedure. Lumineers are custom made exclusively by the DenMat Lab in Lompoc, California, USA, by technicians that specialize in crafting esthetic dental veneers. Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural-looking smile. Traditional porcelain veneers are generally thicker, and usually require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation required for traditional porcelain veneers frequently requires anesthesia shots to minimize sensitivity and pain, and typically involves placement of acrylic temporaries in between appointments. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so you will still look and feel great while your Lumineers are crafted and delivered by the lab.
