The veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are placed on the surface of the tooth to change the shape and color.

How do Lumineers veneers differ from traditional veneers?

The main difference between Lumineers and traditional veneers is that the former are extremely thin, but just as resistant as the latter. This allows not to perform any preparation on the patient's tooth before proceeding to placement. With the traditional veneers, however, it is necessary to wear a few millimeters the surface of the tooth on which they settle, which can generate some side effects.



Treatment process

The treatment with these veneers can only be carried out by an accredited dentist Lumineers. Accredited doctors can be found on the official website (

Since the patient visits the clinic on the first visit until he leaves with the veneers on, the process lasts about a month. During this time the Odontologist performs periodic tests to ensure that the result is the one desired by the patient.

The technique is absolutely painless. In fact, it is not even necessary to use anesthesia during the procedure. It is usually done on patients with dark teeth or who wish to change their dental image.

As any treatment has some contraindications, although fortunately few. During the first consultation, the professional should evaluate a series of parameters to see if the case is fit to undergo treatment.
