Porcelain Veneers – Lumineers

Porcelain veneers, also called “lumineers” are slender, custom-made shells that fit over the front of a tooth to improve its appearance. They can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. There are pros and cons to each type of material so schedule an appointment with Dr. Oh to discuss which option is best for you! Veneers are especially effective at fixing or concealing teeth that are worn-down, discolored, chipped, or misaligned with gaps.

Fast Facts: Lumineers

  • Veneers might be right for you if you’re looking for a minimally invasive, pain-free, smile enhancement option.
  • Veneers will not change color with tooth whitening treatments, so you may want to consider a whitening treatment before committing to a particular shade of veneer.
  • Patients who clench or grind their teeth are not good candidates for veneers as this can cause the veneers to chip or crack.
