Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers and can be fitted without compromising the structure of the existing teeth. The other differences are that they can be fitted without pain and the process can be reversed.
Can Lumineers Take The Place Of Braces?
This is something which you should discuss with your dentist but, in most cases, if your teeth aren’t too badly crooked or out of line, then lumineers can be used to reshape them, giving you a smile of uniform whiter and even teeth.
How Long Will Lumineers Last?
Lumineers will last for over twenty years, although they must be looked after in the same way as your natural teeth.
Will Lumineers Limit The Food I Can Eat?
No. Lumineers are bonded to your teeth so strongly that you’re free to eat and drink anything you like, without any risk of damaging them.
Can Lumineers Be Removed?
Yes, unlike traditional veneers, lumineers can be removed should you wish, with the teeth beneath them remaining strong and intact.
Do Lumineers Have To Be Attached One Tooth At A Time?
No. Unlike standard veneers, lumineers can be fitted to an entire set of teeth at one appointment, in a procedure which only takes around an hour.
Can Lumineers Be Fitted Over Existing Crown And Bridgework?
Yes. Lumineers are so light and easy to fit that they can be attached to existing dental work, such as crowns or bridges.
