What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are thin porcelain shells made of cerinate ceramic that are placed over teeth to improve the smile of patients. They are placed by dentists who are specially certified to perform the procedure. They are bonded to the tooth to augment its appearance. It takes 60 to 90 minutes to place Lumineers.
What is the difference between a Veneer and a Lumineer?
Cerinate ceramic that is used to make Lumineers is thinner than the porcelain used to make veneers. The tooth needs to be prepared before placing veneers. Lumineers are very thin and have the thickness of a contact lens. No tooth preparation is required to place Lumineers. Veneers are made of porcelain, zirconia or composite resin. Lumineers are made only of cerinate ceramic. Lumineers are costlier than veneers. The procedure for placing veneers is not reversible, as some of the tooth has to be removed, while the procedure for placing Lumineers can be reversed.
Is having Lumineers fitted painful?
No grinding or tooth preparation is required for placing Lumineers. The procedure is pain free.
How are Lumineers fitted?
The dentist takes the impression of the teeth of the patient. The impression is sent to a Lumineers laboratory so the restorations can be made. On the next visit the dentist will bond the Lumineers to the teeth of the patient after checking the comfort of their bite.
What care is required after fitting Lumineers?
Patients should follow correct dental hygiene and brush and floss their teeth regularly. They should attend their dental clinic for their scheduled follow up appointments. They should not eat hard or chewy food products. They should avoid food and beverages that could stain the Lumineers.
