What lumineers can do for you

Lumineers are thin laminates of sparkling porcelain that are cemented on to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are one of the most popular cosmetic dental services because they are beautiful and versatile.

In fact, lumineers are the perfect choice to cover up minor and major imperfections like:

  • Chips and tooth erosion due to aging
  • Cracks or fractures due to trauma
  • Stains and discolorations due to lifestyle or genetics
  • Loss of tooth structure due to an injury

Lumineers can also make small spaces or gaps between your teeth appear closed. They can make rotated teeth appear straighter, and generally change the size, shape, and color of your teeth—the choice is up to you.

In addition to versatility, you will enjoy these important benefits with Lumineers:

  • Natural beauty, because porcelain reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel
  • Conservative treatment, because little to no tooth structure is removed, just enough to compensate for the thickness of the Lumineers
  • Long-lasting results, because porcelain is stain-resistant, so your Lumineers will stay beautiful for years

Lumineers typically require between two and three appointments, including a consultation appointment. Imagine having a great new smile in just a couple of visits!
