Lumineers Q & A

What are Lumineers®?

Lumineers are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth and act as a thin shell. They are about as thin as a contact lens (approximately 0.2mm). During a cosmetic in-office dental procedure, Dr. Dharia permanently cements these porcelain sheets to your teeth to enhance the look of your smile and the function of your bite.

Lumineers are a great option for:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Dr. Dharia can help you determine if Lumineers are the best choice for you.

Why might I need Lumineers?

Over time, your teeth are exposed to elements and substances in your food that can erode your teeth and wear them down. Lumineers are an excellent way to help you restore your natural teeth.

You might choose Lumineers if you’ve experienced trauma or an injury that has damaged your teeth.

What can I expect when I get Lumineers?

Lumineers are usually complete in just two or three short, simple, and painless office visits.

After your initial consultation, Dr. Dharia takes an impression of your upper and lower teeth and sends the mold to a lab along with photos and records. You can even view a digital preview of how your Lumineers might look in-office. On your next visit, which is typically a couple of weeks later, Dr. Dharia bonds your Lumineers in place.

What are the advantages of Lumineers?

Lumineers offer both cosmetic and functional benefits and can significantly improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, stained, or discolored teeth. Some of the benefits of Lumineers include:

  • Helping you to eat and chew your food
  • Improving speech
  • Providing a durable, natural-looking, and long-lasting dental solution

Lumineers can chip, but they’re sturdy and reliable and if you properly take care of your Lumineers, they can last for many years. In most cases, Lumineers can last over 20 years.

Lumineers are made to create a seamless and natural-looking smile and they don’t change color or stain over time.

Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers don’t require any removal or reshaping of your original tooth and tooth enamel, making them a less invasive option. Your original tooth is left unchanged and your enamel isn’t damaged.

Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers, but they’re also strong and durable. Lumineers are quick to apply since your teeth aren’t shaved down or changed before the Lumineers are placed.
