Cosmetic Dental Procedures
If you found yourself entering search terms into Google like “cosmetic dental procedures” or “dentist near me,” you probably will eventually come across Lumineers. This is a type of dental veneers that are both thinner and more inexpensive than conventional veneers.
They require little to no tooth structure removal and are quite durable, typically lasting anywhere from 10 to 20 years if cared for properly.

Are Lumineers right for me?
Lumineers may make a good treatment choice for you if you need help with:
- Crooked teeth
- Old dental work
- Tooth staining or discoloration
- Gapped or spaced teeth
- Fractured, chipped or broken teeth
- Small or misshapen teeth
Technically, Lumineers are a type of dental veneer. One difference is that they are significantly thinner than conventional porcelain veneers. This means that little to no tooth enamel is removed prior to their placement.
Another critical difference between Lumineers and traditional veneers is that Lumineers are reversible. In other words, they can be removed without much of an effect on your natural teeth.
Because Lumineers are thinner than traditional veneers, they are somewhat translucent, making their appearance much more like that of natural teeth. They can significantly whiten your teeth and give you a beautiful, confident smile. But since they are quite thin, they are not always able to whiten teeth with severe stains that could show through.
After it is determined that Lumineers make a good treatment choice for you and your treatment goals, you would arrive for your placement appointment. Your dentist will create a mold of your teeth to be sent to a dental lab. There, your Lumineers will be created and sent back to your dentist for placement.
Once your Lumineers are ready, your dentist will place them at a subsequent appointment. They will apply a dental adhesive to your teeth and actually place them over your teeth.
Are Lumineers expensive?
The exact cost will vary, depending upon the individual circumstances of your case, such as teeth size, patient location, and your dentist’s procedure prices.
