Lumineers

Are you bothered by teeth stains or visible gaps? Lumineers can restore a beautiful white smile without extensive surgery or procedures. Talk to Dr. Lee about the benefits of Lumineers, and how these veneers can completely transform your smile!

How Veneers Work

Lumineers are very thin, custom built veneers that can be installed onto your teeth in just two dental visits. There is no drilling into the tooth structure involved and no shots to take! The entire process is painless and hassle-free, and is also completely reversible. Lumineers are designed to last for more than twenty years, providing our patients with movie star-quality smiles for a good part of their lifetime!

Lumineers are a type of porcelain veneer that can be bonded to the tooth without removing a lot of tooth structure. They care often called ‘no prep’ or minimal prep veneers because we do not need to remove a lot of enamel or shave down tooth structure. Dr. Lee can apply the veneer to the teeth without painful shots, and most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure.

If you are a candidate for veneers, Dr. Lee will make dental impressions of your mouth so that your veneers can be made in a lab. You will return to our office for the final placement, and Dr. Lee may use an etching liquid to create a rough surface on the teeth before bonding the veneer to the tooth with a high-intensity light.

The key benefits of Lumineers over traditional veneers include:

  • Relatively painless procedure

  • Does not require extensive tooth structure removal
