FAQ’s for a beautiful smile and a beautiful you.

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.

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.

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.

In most cases, yes! Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is 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.

Clinical testing has shown that Lumineers can last over 20 years.

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.

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.

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.

On the first visit, your dentist will create a precise mold. Then you and your dentist will determine the shade of white that is right for you. After your first visit, your dentist will send the mold off to the DenMat Lab for your custom Lumineers to be created. With Lumineers , you don’t have to wear temporaries. When your dentist receives your custom Lumineers , they are checked for fit and shade. Then during your second visit, your Lumineers are painlessly applied without shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure. And you’re ready to start smiling out loud!
