Lumineers® are the leading brand of non-prep veneers. These porcelain veneers are attached to the tooth’s enamel to help improve your smile. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers® are so thin that there is typically no need for any reduction of the tooth’s natural enamel and patients do not have to wear temporary veneers while they are waiting for the permanent veneers to be made.
After your initial consultation, your doctor will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth that will be sent to the lab where your custom Lumineers® will be created for you. A couple of weeks later, you will return to have your Lumineers® placed. Before they are bonded on, the doctor will try them on to make sure they fit properly, after which they will be bonded to your teeth.
