Normal Tooth Structure
Traditional Prep Veneers
Approximately 0.8mm-2mm healthy
tooth structure removed
Traditional Prep Technique
is most commonly required when a thick
porcelain is used. The full-prep technique was
developed to compensate for the thick porcelain
available to dentists at the time. LUMINEERS
made of Cerinate Porcelain is a major cosmetic
breakthrough. It can be made thick or thin; most
patients, however, prefer thin LUMINEERS due to
the non-invasive technique. An additional
appointment is required for full-prep, as well as
anesthesia and temporaries. And as noted,
bonding porcelain to enamel is a solid, secure
bond compared to bonding porcelain to dentin.
No sensitive tooth removed required
only 0.3mm-0.5mm added to the enamel
The LUMINEERS No-Prep Technique
allows LUMINEERS to be placed over existing
teeth without the removal of any form of tooth
structure. Therefore, anesthesia and temporaries
are also not required. The majority of patients fit
this technique. It is a proven fact that bonding
porcelain to enamel is a solid, secure bond
compared to bonding porcelain to dentin.
What makes LUMINEERS™ Porcelain Veneers different from other veneers?
|LUMINEERS VENEERS Technique
Teeth are stained, slightly misshapen with spaces in-between. An impression is made and the mold is sent to
the Cerinate Smile Design Studios where only LUMINEERS are crafted.
|TRADITIONAL VENEERS Technique
Teeth appear stained and slightly misshapen. An impression is made and sent to a lab.
LUMINEERS VENEERS NO PAINFUL 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, unlike the painful part of traditional veneer techniques. 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.
In only 2 easy dental visits, your patient will have a permanently whiter and beautiful smile without shots, drilling, or pain.
POTENTIALLY PAINFUL 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 pain and discomfort immediately after the procedure.
*Tooth contouring may be necessary. Individual cases may vary.
