Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers made by the DenMat company. They are widely advertised as being ultra-thin, yet very strong, requiring no preparation to your natural teeth, and requiring just two visits to be placed. How do they compare to other brands of porcelain veneers?
Some Considerations for Lumineers
- There are other brands of porcelain veneers that are equally as thin (0.3 mm) and strong.
- Lumineers often come out looking bulky or too long.
- Other brands of porcelain veneers can also be placed in two visits.
- The Lumineers brand has trademark restrictions that require the veneers to be made in DenMat’s own laboratory. Many skilled cosmetic dentists criticize the laboratory for producing a result that is not personalized and lacks aesthetics. They feel that they look bulky, pasty and unnatural.
Why Dr. Morgan Prefers Other Brands
Dr. Morgan is very familiar with Lumineers, but he prefers other ultrathin brands that give him the flexibility to use his own master ceramist. When he creates a smile makeover for you, he starts with discussing the smile design that you want. Then he analyzes your facial features, takes measurements, and creates a smile that is uniquely you.
He will then create a provisional smile makeover for you in a temporary material. You’ll wear this and he will tweak it until it perfectly matches your expectations. Only then will he send his instructions to the laboratory to have your porcelain veneers made. He is so confident that you will love your new smile created in this manner that he provides a beautiful smile guarantee. (Click here to read more about this guarantee.
