Lumineers have been around for more than 30 years, enhancing smiles and brightening faces. Many dentists across the country recommend lumineers, resulting in more than 1 million lumineer units being placed. Many celebrities also have transformed their smiles with lumineers, although you may never know it because of their natural look.

What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a specific type of dental veneer that are constructed differently than traditional veneers. Lumineers are designed to be ultra-thin and highly translucent, which allows them to mimic the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Traditional veneers are much thicker and require some grinding of the original tooth structure; however, lumineers are so thin, they require little to no tooth grinding.

How Long Do Lumineers Last?

Clinical testing has proven that lumineers are durable enough to withstand 20 or more years of wear.

Can Lumineers Be Removed?

Because there is no grinding involved in placing them on the teeth, they are completely reversible, as the normal, healthy teeth remain intact.

How Is a Lumineers Procedure Performed?

On the patient’s first visit to University Centre Dental Associates, Dr. Maurice Haynes will create a precise mold of the patient’s teeth. Together with the patient, he will determine the shade of white that is best. Later, he will send the mold to a lab that will create the custom lumineers.

When he receives the lumineers from the lab, he will check them for fit and shade. During the patient’s second visit, the lumineers are applied without the use of shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure.
