What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are ultra-thin porcelain veneers. Lumineers are a specific type of veneer that can be used to hide gaps in teeth, straighten misaligned or crooked teeth, restore whiteness and shine to discolored teeth.


Lumineers are a reversible cosmetic dentistry procedure (unlike regular veneers) that are guaranteed to last for up to 20 years. They are thinner than traditional veneers and, therefore, do not require trimming down the teeth that takes place in the regular veneers procedure


To find ore information about veneers, contact a dentist offering lumineers near you.
