Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers that have been created by Denmat Lab. Denmat Lab is one of the biggest manufacturers of dental devices and appliances. Their range of porcelain veneers are widely considered to be some of the best options available.
For patients whose teeth are discolored, chipped, misaligned, or worn down, Lumineers provide a great solution.
Veneers are thin wafer-like shells which are attached to your tooth’s surface to fix or hide issues like cracking and chipping. They can also be used for restoring the white appearance of your smile, as well as closing any gaps between them.
In a typical set-up, a minimum of a millimeter of the enamel of the tooth is going to need to be removed in order for the veneers to be accommodated. There are a number of other steps as well. This includes getting an impression, followed by drilling, and then etching the surface of the tooth to make sure that the veneers are right in terms of shape and size.
Because of the potentially long process that is involved when it comes to traditional veneers, most patients opt for Lumineers. These are no-prep veneers. This means intensive preparation, such as altering the natural tooth, is not going to be required for these. They are sometimes referred to as “reversible” veneers because they can be removed and modified safely without there being much change to the structure of the teeth.
There are a number of different people that would benefit from Lumineers. This incldes the following:
