Lumineers are a great way of getting dental veneers but still preserving the tooth structure. This modern addition to cosmetic dentistry is an exclusive product of the DenMat Lab. The Lumineers brand is often preferred over traditional veneers by patients and dentists because they’re thinner and easier to place on the teeth. Also, it is possible to remove Lumineers, and the teeth are still intact and strong, and will look just like before.
Lumineers are a very thin type of a porcelain dental veneer, comparable in thickness to a contact lens. While traditional veneers are typically about 0.5mm thick, the approximate thickness for this type of veneer is 0.2mm, although it may vary according to each case, and they are highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel.
A dental veneer is a highly polished layer of porcelain or composite that is bonded to the surface of the front teeth, to improve aesthetics. They deliver great results when teeth appear stained, worn or chipped, have structural defects like gaps or unflattering positions, or are misshapen. If you don’t 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.
