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. Schedule an appointment with Carson & Carson, DDS today for an affordable, and resilient set of lumineers that can completely renew the confidence in your smile in just 2 visits to our offices (805) 983-717.

Traditional veneers cost between $600 to $1800 per tooth whereas lumineers carry a higher premium and cost between $800 and $2000 per tooth covered. The range in cost mainly come from the different materials which the lumineers are made from which typically include a resin composite or porcelain material.

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.

Carson and Acasio Dentistry is great! All staff, including dentists, are very friendly and nice. They actually seem to care how the patients are doing. It's also easy to get there as it's right to the west of Oxnard Blvd.

Several years ago, I moved to Oxnard and needed some dental work done. In the past, I have always chosen a dentist who offers Sleep Sedation (IV) which puts one into a state of fantasyland, and which I really like when having serious dental work.Upon looking online, I was pleased to find Carson & Carson and was initially treated by the father, LeRoy. On a subsequent visit where I desired the IV, I did not have the requisite ride home and son Dr. Derek graciously dropped me off at the house. To this day, I am grateful for his kind gesture.A little over a year ago, I broke a tooth and met Dr. Mike Acasio for the first time. He really made me feel comfortable with his incredibly positive and caring bedside manner. I then learned he was becoming a partner in the practice and began a discussion about how I could help them rebrand their practice with a new name and look.They hired me to be their marketing services manager and, among other things, to create a new website which is soon to be launched.During the last few months, I have gotten to see and experience first-hand their practice from top to bottom. The doctors are phenomenally talented and dedicated to care for their patients and provide the best experience one can have (most people, like me, would rather walk on hot coals rather than going to a dentist).The Carson-Acasio staff have a great bond and they are committed to their patients with the best care, and support each other through the process.Then just recently, I needed two teeth removed. Dr. Mike convinced me that he could do the work without sleep sedation. He removed the teeth, which then included a third which was badly infected and joined to the bone , and even had to crack the bone … all without me suffering or panicking.I’ve been going to dentists for a lifetime, and Dr. Mike is the best practitioner I have ever encountered.Over the past year and a half, I’ve learned a lot about dentistry and specifically about the Carson & Acasio practice. I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to be part of their organization and see, for myself, what they do and how they work. These folks simply stand head and shoulders above most people in the field.My mouth thanks them.
