LUMINEERS© or Porcelain Veneers for a New Smile

By Nuvo Dental In porcelain veneers January 1, 2019

LUMINEERS© cover misaligned, stained, and gapped teeth just like porcelain veneers do. However, unlike porcelain veneers, they are not permanent. If you decide to have them removed in a decade or two, your original teeth like they were when you had your LUMINEERS© placed. 

Porcelain Veneers 

Porcelain veneers are made of porcelain dental. However, Nuvo Dental of Irvine explains that conventional veneers are not as thin as LUMINEERS© and cannot be removed after placement. If you have old veneers that need attention they must be replaced as a portion of the enamel on your teeth is removed for a natural fit. 

LUMINEERS© require two dental appointments while porcelain veneers could take three or more because you will need to wait until your veneers are made. While you wait, temporary veneers may be placed. 

The LUMINEERS© Difference

LUMINEERS© solve a multitude of problems, and repair: 

  • Teeth with large gaps
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Misshaped teeth
  • Unnatural looking crowns and bridges 

With LUMINEERS©, your speech will not be affected nor will you have to learn how to eat differently. LUMINEERS© are so thin that you won’t notice a difference. With LUMINEERS©, there is no drilling, no injections and no pain or discomfort. With the option to replace more than one at a time, and only two dental visits needed, LUMINEERS© are totally reversible and the perfect alternative to porcelain veneers. 

Are LUMINEERS© Strong? 

Made from Cerinate porcelain, the alternative to dental veneers is thinner and less likely to break or chip. The porcelain can also be modified for color and balance reducing translucency and opaqueness.
