The Difference Between Veneers and Lumineers

Side by side graphical comparison of the installation of veneers and lumineers. Affordable dental care at Carson & Carson, DDS in Oxnard, California.Lumineers are a thinner, functionally similar version of veneers that were designed to be applied in an easier and painless manner. A sturdy alternative to veneers, lumineers are less thick and require much less or none of the healthy tissue of the host tooth to be ground away before installation. They come in variations as thin as .2 mm thick and can be translucent as to allow the natural color of enamel to show. Unlike veneers, lumineers can be removed as they are typically placed over natural teeth rather than replacing the tissue from them.

Not every dentist is trained in providing the benefits that lumineers can offer, but at Carson & Carson, DDS, we are certified lumineer dentists and offer them as an option to our patients instead of veneers.

Revive Your Smile in Just 2 Dental Visits

Your first visit will be a an initial consultation where we will map the layout of your upper and lower teeth using high quality 3-d images. If your teeth need any smoothing out or adjustments made before the installation of veneers, this is the visit where that would be done. Your dental records and images are then sent to our authorized lumineer laboratory, and in just a few days, they return a well constructed, shiny set of porcelain or resin composite lumineers ready to reconstruct your smile.

Your second visit to our office will typically occur about a week or two later and will involve the placement of the lumineers upon your teeth. In preparation for bonding of the lumineers, we ensure that they are a perfect fit for every tooth. Once this is done, your teeth are ready for rough etching and bonding of the lumineers to each tooth. Once bonded to each tooth, the lumineers are inspected to ensure that the spacing and contact between your teeth can function optimally. That’s it! In just two painless visits to the dentist, your smile can achieve a straight and pearly white look that can restore your confidence while improving the function and health of your teeth.
