Lumineers™ are similar to Veneers, but they are much thinner and it is a quicker process to apply. After your initial consultation, your Certified Lumineers™ Dentist will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, and send the mold to an authorized Lumineers™ laboratory along with photos and other records that ensure the very best case for you. Unlike traditional veneers, there is typically no need for extensive drilling, shots or unsightly acrylic temporaries. On your next visit, generally a couple weeks later, your dentist will place your Lumineers™. Before Lumineers™ are bonded in place, it is important to try them on to ensure a good fit. Teeth are then moderately etched to prepare for placement and then bonded one by one. Your dentist will then check your bite to make sure your contacts are balanced to avoid chipping your Lumineers™ through the course of daily function.
