LUMINEERS® The Comfortable Veneers Alternative

Written by Nuvo Dental Apr 15 • 7 minute read


 If the thought of permanently changing the shape of your teeth bothers you, LUMINEERS could be the answer. 

According to your Irvine cosmetic dentist, conventional porcelain veneers require a small amount of enamel removal that is permanent making veneers irreversible. LUMINEERS® on the other hand require little if any enamel removal and can be removed if you decide you don’t want them anymore. 

What are LUMINEERS®? 

According to your dentist in Irvine, LUMINEERS® are ultra thin sheets of porcelain that fit over the tops of your teeth. About as thick as a contact lens, they look natural and beautiful. What’s even better is that they are placed without harsh chemicals, surgery, or painful treatments.  

What Problems Can LUMINEERS® Address? 

  • Stained Teeth that Can’t Be Helped with Professional Tooth Whitening 
  • Misshaped Teeth 
  • Large Gaps 
  • Uneven Teeth and Gums 
  • Unnatural Looking Crowns and Bridges 
  • Misaligned Teeth 

Although there are similar cosmetic dental procedures that will give you a beautiful smile, LUMINEERS® does have its advantages. One of the biggest is the fact that patients won’t have to deal with painful alterations, as the procedure requires no prep work. Because LUMINEERS® are so thin, you won’t have to learn how to eat and talk again as you do with some types of conventional dental veneers. 

The Advantages of LUMINEERS®

  • 20 Year Life Expectancy
  • No Drilling
  • No Injections 
  • No Pain 
  • No Discomfort 
  • Two Dental Visits Not Three or Four 
  • Totally Reversible 

Other Advantages 

Although LUMINEERS® are thinner than conventional veneers, they are less likely to chip or break. In addition, the porcelain can be color balanced and modified giving you natural levels of translucency and opaqueness. 

LUMINEERS® are beautiful, but if you would like them removed, your natural teeth will look just like they did before placement even if you wait 20 years to do so.
