What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a specialized brand of dental veneers offered by your Clifton cosmetic dentist. They are thin, translucent, tooth-shaped sections of reinforced porcelain that fit directly over your natural teeth, enhancing the color and masking any imperfections like chips, cracks or abnormal shapes.

What makes Lumineers different?

With a width of only 0.2 millimeters, Lumineers are ultra-thin compared to other dental veneers. Their small size makes the the biggest difference; Lumineers are a "no prep" restoration. This means that there's no need for your cosmetic dentist to remove any enamel from your natural teeth, making the placement of Lumineers easy and the restorations completely reversible or easily altered. There is also no pain or sensitivity associated with the placement and no downtime or recovery period.

How do I take care of Lumineers?

Another attractive aspect of Lumineers is their ease of care. Brushing, flossing and staying current on checkups with your Clifton cosmetic dentist at TranscenDental will keep your Lumineers beautiful and functional for many years to come. Dr. Bui also reminds his patients that regardless of the dental work you've had done, it is very important to remember not to bite down on excessively hard foods, such as ice or candy, and never use your teeth as "scissors" to tear or break anything. Lumineers are designed to be very strong but should not be subject to undue pressure.
