Lumineers / Veneers

The Greatest Breakthrough in the History of Dentistry

Ninety percent of Americans agree that a smile is a crucial social asset, yet less than 50 percent of Americans are satisfied with their smiles' aesthetic nature. A smile means a lot in our lives, but at times it becomes impossible to show off when you have an imperfect dental formula. If you have been living with chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth, your confidence wavering, then we have the solution for you! LUMINEERS® are a no-prep treatment that will give you the vibrant smile of your dreams in just two visits. You can enjoy having beautiful teeth without wearing braces, shaving down a healthy tooth, and without having to spend hours in a dental chair.

The innovation of LUMINEERS® has become one of the greatest breakthroughs in the cosmetic dentistry industry. LUMINEERS® rejuvenates damaged teeth structures by correcting crooked, chipped, or impaired teeth and balancing the tooth and gum ratio. LUMINEERS® are porcelain veneers whose material and appearance closely resemble that of your natural-looking teeth. This type of cosmetic, reconstructive procedure does not require the painful removal of tooth structure but is simply applied to your teeths' surface. 

Thanks to this ground-breaking technology, you can skip right past most stages in dental treatments and go straight to the vibrant smile of your dreams just with the simple application of these wafer-like structures. These thin yet flexible laminates can completely sculpt the arch of your teeth while simultaneously creating a vibrant polished appearance. A more conservative dental treatment than that of dental crowns, LUMINEERS® only require minimal shaping of their placement's underlying tooth. These restorations retain their color and luster over time, making them an ideal solution for a total smile transformation.

LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE® structure can be shaped as thin as a contact lens and is affixed over existing teeth to match your natural tooth enamel. This type of dental procedure is considered such a great dental breakthrough, as the need to extract 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, as is the case with the application of traditional 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 only 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 a virtually painless procedure since there is no removal of a sensitive tooth structure entailed by this method. The application of these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to the teeth is primarily what the whole procedure consists of. The beauty of the LUMINEERS® technology is that the product is shaped to your damaged tooth instead of forcing your natural tooth to 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.

Because they do not require the removal of any tooth structure, LUMINEERS® are also 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 your 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.
