Lumineers® is a brand of porcelain veneers made by the DenMat Corporation. They are promoted as ultra-thin veneers that can be placed in two visits without preparation of your natural teeth. But how does this brand compare to others?
Lumineers vs Other Brands
- Ultrathin – There are other brands of ultra-thin veneers. Also, master dental ceramists are able to handcraft ultra-thin veneers by layering porcelain.
- Preparation – Although your teeth don’t have to be prepared before you receive Lumineers and some other brands, minimal preparation often produces better results. It can help your porcelain veneers look natural at your gumline and prevent your teeth from looking bulky.
- Number of visits required – There are other brands that, like Lumineers, can be placed in two visits. But a rushed process doesn’t always produce the best results. Dr. Brooksher works closely with you to design a smile that includes your preferences and complements your facial features. You’ll wear temporary veneers to determine if your smile design looks and feels as great as you anticipated. And before your porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth, you will try them on to ensure your smile design is perfect.
- Aesthetics – Many cosmetic dentists agree that Lumineers often make teeth look bulky and pasty. They are not customized to look like your own natural teeth. But other brands of porcelain veneers can accurately capture the color, translucency, and gloss of natural teeth.
