Lumineers are a special type of dental veneers that are made of incredibly thin porcelain so that they can be applied directly to the fronts of teeth. Our Los Angeles Lumineers specialist can use Lumineers to correct many of the same issues that traditional dental veneers can correct, including stains, discolorations, chips, worn enamel and minor misalignments.
Many people prefer Lumineers to traditional veneers because they require little or no preparation. This means that our specialist for Lumineers in Los Angeles does not generally need to file your natural teeth, and there is no need for uncomfortable shots or drilling. Traditional veneers require that teeth be trimmed to accommodate the extra thickness of dental veneers, and patients can experience some degree of sensitivity. Additionally, the process cannot be reversed. Lumineers are different. Lumineers can be placed directly over your own natural teeth. There is no risk of sensitivity, and the process will be reversible since no dental enamel was removed.
