What is lumineer veneer?

Lumineers Veneer is a protective application mostly used for aesthetic purposes. It is based on the bonding of ultra-thin porcelain leaves to the tooth surface. It is recommended to patients by doctors in order to eliminate color changes and create a healthier smile. It was first developed in the United States.

 

Since very little abrasion is applied to the patient’s original teeth during its application, zirconium veneer is among the most preferred veneering methods in Cosmetic Dentistry.

 

Since we are talking about thinness between 0.2 – 0.5 mm, the application of these porcelain leaves to your teeth should be done by professional aesthetic dentists.

What are the advantages of lumineer veneers?

  • It is a painless process: Operations are carried out without using a needle. Broken, disfigured, yellowed teeth can be easily veneered painlessly and achieve a healthy appearance.

 

  • It is a risk-free operation: There is no need to apply anesthesia in the lumineer veneer process. In this context, it does not pose any risk.

 

  • It is a fast and practical treatment: For a healthy, natural smile, results can be obtained quickly and effectively with Lumineers Veneer.

 

  • They can be easily pulled off: Lumineer Leaves can be easily pulled off if desired. No pain is felt in the removal process. In case of removal of veneers, natural teeth can be used as before or a different treatment can be applied according to the patient’s preference.

 

  • Temporary teeth are not used: Since the veneer is applied to tooth enamel during treatment, there is no need to use temporary teeth.

How to make lumineer veneers?

As a result of the comprehensive examinations carried out by our specialist doctors, a treatment plan is created and the application is carried out accordingly. In order to be able to apply, the roots of the teeth must be healthy, for this purpose, detailed checks are performed with x-ray devices. Different treatment alternatives are offered if losses that may be an obstacle for Lumineer Veneers are detected in the tooth roots.

 

Treatment Stages:

 

  • Measurements are taken from the teeth.

  • Lumineer Veneers are prepared in appropriate sizes.

  • The formed leaves are rehearsed on the teeth and arrangements are made if necessary.

  • After gluing the veneers, the treatment results in success.

  • The patient is included in the subject at all these stages and the details from color selection to determining the tooth form are analyzed together.

What is the difference between lumineer veneers from other veneers?

Lumineer Veneers are applied only to the front surface of the tooth.

 

Lumineer Veneers cannot be used for missing teeth and to fill gaps, this method is not used in bridge applications.

 

Lumineer Veneers are thinner than porcelain veneers.  They are metal-free veneers and do not create any reaction in the gums. Unlike E-Max veneers and Zirconium crowns, teeth are not cut, only the front surface is eroded by approximately 0.3-0.7 mm. In alternatives, the tooth is abraded all around and covered completely.
