Prep-less Lumineer Veneers (NEW)

Our Clinic is a licensed provider for newest type of Porcelain Veneer

–  Lumineers : strongest type of Veneer on the market

Lumineers ® Indirect bonding without no or minimal shots.

The newest form of esthetic dentistry involves bonding ultra-thin porcelain veneers, generally without anesthetic, to unprepared or lightly prepared teeth.  This has been made possible because of a new innovation in dental materials.  Lumineers BY CERINATE is a cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored and misaligned teeth.  It may even be used to revitalize old crowns and bridgework.  Lumineers are a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and are placed over existing teeth, most of the time without requiring the removal of sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers ).

The advantages to this type of esthetic restoration are as follows:

Since in most situations, Lumineers require little or no modifications to the underlying teeth themselves, they can be done from start to finish without or minimal shots most of the time.

Since the veneer is bonded entirely to tooth enamel, the bond is very strong (the strongest bond in all of dentistry) and the restorations are clinically proven to last for a minimum of 20 years.

Lumineer veneers are proprietary which means that the veneers are built only by certified lab technicians.  This is no small consideration since the dentist cannot “cheap out” by using a discount lab where technicians are not as well versed in the art.  The porcelain to enamel bond is one of the strongest in dentistry.  Lumineers, once bonded to the teeth have very good track record for strength and longevity.

The pre-requisite of Lumineers are as follows:

The Teeth that will receive the lumineers and the gums that surround them should be in reasonable condition.  There can be no active decay in the teeth, and any fillings present must be in fairly good condition prior to doing the veneers.  With a seriously damaged tooth that has been extensively repaired with composite, it is often best to place an all-porcelain crown on it instead of a veneer.  Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth and protect it from further decay.
