Regular Veneers vs. Lumineers

Veneer SmileAt Baker Street Dental, we’re delighted to offer clients in London and beyond an incredible array of dental veneers, including Lumineers. Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment, which are famed for creating stunning smiles. If you dream of a smile fit for the red carpet, you’ve come to the right place.

What are Lumineers and how are they different from regular veneers?

Lumineers are a unique type of veneer treatment. They are crafted using a patented form of ceramic material called Cerinate porcelain. They are incredibly thin and light, but they’re also strong and durable. The pressed ceramic material increases strength and prolongs the lifespan. Lumineers are up to twice as strong as traditional porcelain veneers, and they can last up to twenty years.
Lumineers are very thin, and this enables greater translucency. These veneers look very lifelike, and they’ll give you a beautifully natural aesthetic.
As Lumineers are thinner than regular veneers, the procedure to fit them is also slightly different. Usually, the teeth have to be prepared before new veneers are fitted. With Lumineers, minimal tooth preparation is required, and this means that the tooth structure is left virtually untouched.

Who can benefit from Lumineers?

Lumineers are an ideal choice for anyone who has designs on a stunning, natural-looking smile. These veneers can be used to address a host of common imperfections, including staining and discolouration, chips and worn teeth, uneven and misshapen teeth and gaps between the teeth. Once the veneers are in place, you’ll have a smile to be proud of and you’ll look and feel incredible.
