Dentists have used veneers for nearly a century to mask cosmetic dental problems and provide the appearance of a white, even smile. Veneers are thin wafers made from porcelain or ceramic materials that cover the front of the teeth. Lumineers offer several advantages over traditional porcelain veneers.
Lumineers are thinner than other types of veneers. More light can shine through them, providing a luminous quality that is similar to natural dental enamel. Traditional veneers allow less light to shine through, which sometimes gives them a more artificial appearance.
Traditional veneers are thicker than Lumineers. This means that the dentist must remove enamel from the front of the teeth before placing veneers onto the teeth. Because Lumineers are thin, they can usually fit over the front of the teeth without requiring enamel removal. The teeth will remain undamaged and the Lumineers can be removed entirely later on.
