The Difference Between Lumineers and Traditional Veneers

The Difference Between Veneers and Lumineers

By now you probably know that veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to teeth to repair chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections. However, it’s important to understand that there’s a great type of veneer called a Lumineer, and it might be just the treatment that you’re looking for.

But what exactly is the difference between veneers and lumineers?

Lumineers are even thinner than veneers, which typically eliminates the need to remove enamel before the procedures, ensuring that the treatment most often stays reversible. Lumineers are also more transparent, which creates a better cosmetic dentistry appearance. Finally, Lumineers are more durable, lasting up to 15 years or even longer if properly maintained.

We’re ready to answer any other questions you might have about cosmetic dentistry treatment with Lumineers. Call our team or schedule an appointment to talk about how our San Diego Dentist office can make your smile beautiful with Lumineers.
