Lumineers®

Lumineers

LUMINEERS® by CERINATE® are porcelain veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Dr. Saha can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.

LUMINEERS are contact lens-thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers). LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. In just two or three visits to our office, you can have a custom-made smile that is clinically proven to last over twenty years - and it is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact! Get your perfect smile today!

Lumineers are appropriate for some people. Whether they would be good for you is something Dr. Saha can tell you only after an examination. Cosmetic dentistry isn't so simple as just pasting some veneers over the top of someone's teeth and letting the lab do the rest. The lab cannot make up for what the dentist doesn't know.

LUMINEERS VENEERS
NO PAINFUL TOOTH REDUCTION

TRADITIONAL VENEERS
PAINFUL TOOTH REDUCTION
   
On next dental visit, your dentist tries in your LUMINEERS to ensure a good fit. Teeth are moderately etched to prepare for placement but there is no removal of sensitive tooth structure, the painful part of traditional veneer techniques. The LUMINEERS are bonded to your natural teeth and set in place with a curing light.

Anesthetic shots are given to numb the area and teeth are severely shaved away with a drill to accommodate the veneers.

   
 
PAINFREE AFTER
LUMINEERS Prevents This
POTENTIALLY PAINFUL AFTER
In only two easy dental visits, you will have a permanently whiter and beautiful smile without shots, drilling or pain.
A better, but still flawed smile, as the procedure is not reversible like LUMINEERS because the original teeth have been shaved down causing pain and discomfort immediately after the procedure.
