LUMINEERS are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. LUMINEERS are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of LUMINEERS allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.
Is the LUMINEERS procedure painful?
Rest assured, the LUMINEERS procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means LUMINEERS will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive process. Can I get LUMINEERS instead?
In most cases, yes! We will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, LUMINEERS will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don’t get with braces.
How long will LUMINEERS last?
Clinical testing has proven that a LUMINEERS smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years.
How long does the procedure take?
The LUMINEERS process takes only 2 visits to your dentist and the placement of LUMINEERS on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.
