Transform your smile in just a few easy visits
While every oral health situation is unique and your experience may vary, most Lumineers® procedures are completed in just a few easy visits. Your dentist may recommend additional dental procedures to complement your Lumineers smile makeover. After your initial smile design consultation, your dentist will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and send the impressions to the dental lab where your Lumineers are fabricated. Your Lumineers will be placed during your final appointment. Lumineers are placed by dentists trained in painless minimally invasive techniques that typically require no shots or aggressive drilling. The result is an immediate, natural-looking and long-lasting smile transformation. You won’t stop smiling!
Lumineers can be prescribed to correct:
- Stained or Discolored Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
- Spacing and Gaps
- Misaligned or Crooked Teeth
- Small or Misshapen Teeth
- Aging Dental Work
- Undesired Smile Esthetics

Lumineers vs Traditional Porcelain 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 artistically crafted in the lab.
