Lumineers Vs. Veneers

Lumineers VS Veneers

One size does not fit all when it comes to lumineers vs. veneers!

Lumineers are ideal for minor cosmetic work, while veneers are used for instant orthodontic work & smile makeovers. If you are curious about which is suitable for you, continue reading…

Lumineers are recommended for minor cosmetic changes as they are more conservative. When lumineers are used, there must be no removal of the tooth structure. Lumineers are often used to extend small teeth (depending on the bite), fix a crack or chip, or brighten the appearance of your smile. They will look bulkier than your teeth before commencing the lumineers, so if you do not want your teeth to look bulkier, this procedure is not for you.

Lumineers provide a painless way to whiten and straighten your teeth, depending on how your teeth close. They can also fix chips and stains without altering tooth structure. Lumineers are ultra-thin but can still feel bulkier than a veneer. Lumineers are not invasive and generally cost less than veneers.

Veneers are a more permanent solution and involve removing the tooth structure. Veneers typically require two visitsto your Hollywood dentist, just like the lumineers. Veneers can also correct uneven spaces, gaps, or chips. Correctly done, it is the ultimate to take years off your face, and generally, Veneers are kinder to your gum tissue than Lumineers. The minimal amount of preparation required to remove from tooth structure is to ensure not a bulky appearance of your teeth. Veneers deals with your existing bite much better than lumineers, and the color of veneers will look more natural than an opaque color generally seen in lumineers.
