LUMINEERS – the minimally invasive way to bring out the beautiful, healthy, natural, permanently white smile in you. Ultra-thin and translucent LUMINEERS are custom designed to give you the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Unlike traditional veneers, there are no shots and no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. They’re even reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.

LUMINEERS Veneers No Uncomfortable Tooth Preparation
On next dental visit, the dentist tries in LUMINEERS to ensure a good fit. Teeth are moderately etched to prepare for placement but there is no removal of sensitive tooth structure. The LUMINEERS are bonded to natural teeth and set in place with a curing light.

Traditional Veneer Tooth Preparation
Anesthetic shots are given to numb the area and teeth are severely shaved away with a drill to accommodate the veneers.


Only 2 Visits
In only 2 easy dental visits, your patient will
have a permanently whiter and beautiful
smile without shots or drilling.

Potentially Discomfort After
A better, but still flawed smile, as the procedure is not reversible like LUMINEERS because the original teeth have been shaved down causing your patient discomfort immediately after the procedure.


The LUMINEERS Difference

They’re not veneers, they’re LUMINEERS – a difference you can see.

There’s simply no substitute for LUMINEERS. Unlike traditional veneers that involve a much longer more invasive process that can take months, LUMINEERS are the quick easy way–just 2 dentist visits– to a beautiful smile, beautiful you.

The traditional veneers process:
Traditional veneers are sometimes referred to as crowns or caps. These porcelain sleeves are placed over your teeth through a process that can demand the extensive grinding down of healthy tooth structure. This can require shots and many long dentist appointments.

Temporary crowns are placed on your teeth while your traditional veneers are made, it can take months before your veneers are ready. Your temporaries are then removed, which also may require shots and needles, and your permanent veneers are inserted. Sometimes additional appointments are required to ensure that your bite is correct.

Smile Solutions with Simple, Proven Techniques
Unlike traditional veneers, with LUMINEERS there’s no shots, no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. That’s because LUMINEERS are ultra-thin so they can simply be placed over your existing teeth.

Whether you transform your smile with LUMINEERS or LUMINEERS with LUMINATE in new LUMITray Technology, it takes only 2 easy visits to your dentist to bring out your beautiful smile. And when you catch a glimpse of your new smile, you’ll find that you just can’t stop smiling.

Thanks to the superior strength of Cerinate Porcelain, LUMINEERS can solve a variety of cosmetic issues without the tooth grinding and shots inherent in traditional veneers.

LUMINEERS do not require below the gum line placement, eliminating pushing the gum and subgingival health concerns such as gingivitis. And, with the proven placement system that includes Ultra-Bond and Tenure, you won't have to worry about debondings or pop-offs that are frequently experienced with traditional veneers.

LUMINEERS cases can be completed in as few as two visits with no downtime, thanks to the fact that anesthesia, extensive prepping, and temporaries are not needed.

The LUMINEERS philosophy is to preserve natural tooth structure whenever possible. When choosing LUMINEERS, most patients are ideal for no-prep or minimal cosmetic contouring (enameloplasty only). Patients can decide how much reduction is best and choose the technique that best fits the case - no-prep, cosmetic contouring or minimal-prep.


Are you a candidate for LUMINEERS?
Stained and Discolored Teeth

"I didn't smile in my grad picture and I didn't smile in my wedding picture. When I found out about LUMINEERS I said, 'This is something that I want!'."

Staining and discoloration are problems for many. Whether the damage has been caused by time, stain-producing substances such as coffee and red wine, or by the administration of tetracycline, the polychromatic and natural-looking character of LUMINEERS corrects discoloration without appearing artificial, and provides a permanent whitening solution for those who hide their smile.

Worn Dentition

"My teeth were pretty dull and I had ground down quite a bit of them. They just didn't have a lot of life to them, so I wanted the life put back into them and into my smile."

Restoring teeth to a more youthful appearance is also possible with LUMINEERS. From renewing worn dentition on natural teeth to revitalizing the appearance of existing crowns and bridgework, LUMINEERS can help to take years off a patient's smile. Non-invasive procedures and fast placement also make LUMINEERS ideal for more mature patients.

 

Revitalize Old Dental Work

 

"If I had one regret it is that I didn't do this sooner. I would strongly encourage anyone who is contemplating having LUMINEERS to by all means go ahead."

No matter a patient's age, perfectly sound existing bridgework can make a patient appear much older if there is gingival recession and metal collars exposed or your natural dentition no longer matches in shade. LUMINEERS porcelain can easily be placed on top of existing crowns and bridgework to revitalize their overall appearance. Better yet, revitalize the whole smile with LUMINEERS to complete the look and take years off their smile.

Adolescent Dentition

 "LUMINEERS dramatically changed my smile without grinding my teeth. My smile looks natural and I am excited to show everyone my new LUMINEERS smile."

Even adolescent teeth can benefit from LUMINEERS. Improve smiles damaged from childhood accidents or orthodontia, and boost your patients' confidence when they need it most!

Pre-Adolescent Teeth

 "I was scared, but it didn't hurt at all."

This nine-year old girl was self-conscious about the chips on her front teeth and the way it changed the shape of her smile. LUMINEERS offered a fast, noninvasive solution that enhanced her self-esteem. Chips and cracks can be hidden beneath contact lens-thin LUMINEERS without destroying her natural teeth.

Gaps/Space

"With LUMINEERS my dentist didn't need to give me a shot."

A variety of shape and spacing issues can also be addressed with LUMINEERS. Diastemas, small tooth size, unevenly shaped teeth, and unevenly aligned teeth may be ideal candidates for "instant orthodontia."

Misalignment

"I have hidden my smile behind facial hair."

Crooked and crowded teeth are common problems that patients want addressed with maximum convenience and minimum discomfort. In most cases LUMINEERS can eliminate the need for braces and correct misaligned teeth by placing ultra-thin LUMINEERS porcelain veneers, which permanently cover misaligned teeth.

Misshaped Teeth

"With LUMINEERS on my teeth I am much more confident. I don't feel like I have to hide my teeth and I don't look at everybody else wishing I had their teeth."

Some smiles never fully develop into a large, adult smile. Teeth may be large in the front yet small on the sides. In the past, to create an adult smile, patients had to rely on bonding to fill in the gaps or extensive orthodontics. Now with LUMINEERS, they can get an adult smile in as little as two office visits and without shots or drilling.

Chips and Cracks

Dentist said, "After seeing what LUMINEERS have done for my patients, I knew it was something I needed to do for myself."

Do you have a chipped tooth right in front where everyone can see? While bonding may offer a temporary fix, it may not be the most reliable way to ensure an attractive smile for the long run. LUMINEERS offers a permanent and pleasant way to fix chipped teeth. Your patient will always smile with confidence.

Permanently Whiten

"My teeth were sensitive and I hated bleaching them over and over. Now they're permanently white!"

Stained or discolored teeth can be a major embarrassment because no amount of bleaching, brushing or visits to the dentist will remove the stains. Now there's a hassle-free solution to the problem. LUMINEERS eliminates the traces of any stains or discoloration, leaving patients with a permanently white smile.

Yes!  Four out of five patients are LUMINEERS candidates. LUMINEERS is the biggest breakthrough in achieving the smiles that patients are wishing for. These contact lens-thin "smile shapers" are so thin, yet so strong, there is no need for the removal of sensitive tooth structure, no anesthesia and no temporaries. Whatever your smile issue, LUMINEERS is the perfect solution!
