Lumineers - The Non-Invasive Veneers

Q: How are Lumineers different from traditional veneers?

A: Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. While traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.

Q: Is the Lumineers procedure painful?

A: Rest assured, the Lumineers procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.​ Provo cosmetic dentist, Dr. David Bennett is an expert in making your visit comfortable and relaxing.

Q: Are there any other Lumineers?

A: No. Lumineers are exclusive, one-of-a-kind products of the DenMat Lab at DenMat, one of the nation's largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.

Q: I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive process. Can I get Lumineers instead?

A: In most cases, yes! Your provo dentist at Advanced Dental Care will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics are necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, Lumineers will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don’t get with braces.

Q: What are Lumineers? 

A: Lumineers are contact-lens-thin porcelain veneers that are bonded to the front of existing teeth with a strong patented adhesive. Lumineers require no reduction in tooth structure, no shots, and no expensive temporaries*

 

Q: How thick are Lumineers?

A: They are comparable to the thickness of contact lese (about ½ to 1 millimeter). They are so natural looking and feeling, you will hardly notice the difference from your real teeth.

Q: How long will Lumineers last?

A: Clinical testing has proven that a Lumineers smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years.

 

Q: How long does the procedure take?

A: The Lumineers process takes only 2 visits to your  Utah's best cosmetic dentist provide the placement of Lumineers on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.

Q: Is there any pain involved?

A: Dramatic changes in smile can happen with little or no discomfort, sometimes without even getting numb.

 

Q: With Lumineers, can I still chew gum and eat my favorite sticky foods? 

A: Drink and eat what you want with confidence because Lumineers are applied in the most durable way possible. However, Lumineers don’t replace good hygiene, so you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning to keep your Lumineers looking their best and the rest of your teeth and gums healthy.

 

Q: Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?

A: Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure, in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.

 

Q: How long have Lumineers been around?

A: Lumineers have been improving smiles for over 30 years. More than 13,000 dentists nationwide recommend Lumineers, and over one million units have been placed. Many celebrities have transformed their smiles with Lumineers, but you’d never know because they look so naturally beautiful.
