Lumineers vs Veneers?

lumineers vs veneers, baltimore, westminster mdRemember when movie stars and politicians had teeth that weren’t perfect? Today, it seems almost impossible to see teeth that are crooked, yellow or otherwise imperfect. You have probably heard a number of people talk about veneers when looking at different options pertaining to cosmetic dentistry. Thankfully, the options available can help you to:

  • Align your teeth
  • Fill in any chipped teeth
  • Straighten any crooked teeth
  • Provide you with the proper tooth and gum balance
  • Widen and lengthen your teeth
  • Provide you with a uniform smile and fix a misshapen tooth
  • Correct any stained teeth that whitening isn’t able to fix

What’s the Difference?

Veneers: Veneers are extremely thin, durable shells that are designed specifically to adhere to your tooth. Generally, they are made from porcelain and are quite durable, natural in appearance, and resistant to stains.

Veneers require tooth preparation before installation. This involves the dentist shaving off the outer portion of your tooth. Because you will lose the outer enamel of your tooth, when it comes to porcelain veneers, you want to make sure the job is done right the first time around.

Lumineers: Lumineers are a brand of “prepless” veneers. A lot thinner than veneers, they also differ in that they don’t require the same amount of tooth preparation. While, Lumineers are far quicker to apply than traditional veneers, they don’t cover up dark spots on teeth and aren’t able to correct as wide a range of problems that veneers can.
