Lumineers / Veneers

The greatest breakthrough in the history of dentistry.

 The innovation of LUMINEERS® to the dental world has become one of the greatest breakthroughs to the cosmetic dentistry industry. LUMINEERS® essentially rejuvenate damaged teeth structures by correcting crooked teeth, chipped or impaired teeth and balance the ratio of tooth and gum proportions. LUMINEERS® are porcelain veneers whose material and appearance are similar to that of your natural looking teeth.  This type of cosmetic reconstructive procedure does not require the painful removal of tooth structure but instead just applied to the surface of your teeth. 

LUMINEERS BY CERINATE® structure can be shaped as thin as a contact lens and then placed over existing teeth to match your natural tooth enamel.  This type of dental procedure is thought as a great dental breakthrough for the idea of extracting the sensitive tooth structure like traditional veneers is completely thrown out of the equation. The application of LUMINEERS® does not require the process of shaving down your natural tooth to be shaped to the structure of the corrective material like that in the application of veneers.

LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate® porcelain. This revolutionary porcelain is crafted through a proprietary process unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studios owned by Den-Mat® Corporation. In just two or three visits to the dentist, LUMINEERS provides a custom-made smile clinically proven to last over 20 years.

New LUMINEERS technology makes painful veneers unnecessary.

LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE® is essentially a painless procedure due to the fact that there is no removal of a sensitive tooth structure involved within the duration of this method. The application of these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to the teeth is primarily what the entire procedure consists of.  The beauty of the LUMINEERS technology is that the product is shaped to your damaged tooth as opposed to making your natural tooth match the product.  LUMINEERS can even be placed on porcelain Bridgework and Crowns with the new Revitalize™ Kit available to your dentist. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is the best of both worlds—ultra-thin, yet super strong for a radiant smile that resists any cracking, which can damage restorations.

LUMINEERS are completely reversible. Get your perfect smile today!

Lumineers Technique

BEFORE
Teeth appear stained and slightly misshapen. An impression is made and sent to a lab.

TRADITIONAL VENEERS Technique

BEFORE
Teeth are stained, slightly misshapen with spaces in-between. The dentist makes an impression and the mold is sent to the Cerinate Smile Design Studio where only Lumineers are crafted.

Lumineers VENEERS
NO PAINFUL TOOTH REDUCTION

On next dental visit, your dentist tries in your Lumineers to ensure a good fit. Teeth are moderately etched to prepare for placement but there is no removal of sensitive tooth structure, the painful part of traditional veneer techniques. The Lumineers are bonded to your natural teeth and set in place with a curing light.

TRADITIONAL VENEERS
PAINFUL TOOTH REDUCTION

Anesthetic shots are given to numb the area and teeth are severely shaved away with a drill to accommodate the veneers.

PAIN FREE AFTER Lumineers

In only 2 easy dental visits, you will have a permanently whiter and beautiful smile without shots, drilling or pain thanks to Lumineers.

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 pain and discomfort immediately after the procedure.
