Comparing Lumineers to Traditional Porcelain Veneers

At Lerner and Lemongello in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, we are committed to offering patients affordable and effective solutions for enhancing the appearance of the smile. Many of our patients are proper candidates for veneers. We offer two varieties of veneers in our practice, including traditional veneers and more conservative Lumineers.

Lumineers vs. Traditional Veneers

Patients who have imperfections on the front of the teeth may find that cosmetic facings such as porcelain veneers may be a great choice for enhancing the look of the smile. However, there are two methods of treatment for patients to think about, including traditional porcelain veneers and a thinner alternative called Lumineers. While both of these restorations are made of quality ceramics and fabricated to match the natural teeth, Lumineers has one small advantage. Lumineers are incredibly thin, and do not require the teeth to be prepared beforehand. This means that they are reversible. Traditional porcelain veneers require patients to remove a thin portion of the tooth enamel from the tooth to reduce the likelihood of bulkiness when the veneers are bonded in place. This means that once patients make the decision to place veneers, they will always have to have them in place to cover the natural tooth. However, with Lumineers, patients may choose to have them removed in the future if they choose to do so. This offers more flexibility. However, the cost of Lumineers is more than that of porcelain veneers, so patients need to compare their options closely to make the right choice for their smile.
