Porcelain Veneers/Lumineers

Porcelain Veneers or LumineersĀ are an advanced form of cosmetic dentistry. They are beautiful and ideal for that patient who wants to change the color or shape of there teeth and wants something durable and as esthetic as natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers or Lunineers are thin eggshells of porcelain bonded onto your existing teeth. I often use the analogy to formica cabinets. The framework is built and then the formica, in any color or design is glued on top. Once glued down the formica is very strong and durable. Formica sheets by themselves are very brittle and easily broken. Porcelain veneers until they are bonded to the tooth are very thin and brittle. This is not considered a reversible procedure and many times the natural teeth need to be modified to achieve the desired result.

Lumineers is a branded type of porcelain veneer processed by Den-Mat Holdings, LLC.
