Do you want to enhance the appearance of your teeth? One of the most well-liked methods of getting a picture-perfect smile is porcelain veneers or Lumineers placed on your teeth.
These two treatments are different, despite sharing similarities and addressing many of the same dental issues. So, what is the difference?
What Do Lumineers and Veneers Do for Your Smile?
Lumineers are ultra-thin porcelain shells bonded to the surface of your teeth. So are veneers, but veneers are thicker. These treatments for cosmetic dentistry can make your smile look better right away by hiding flaws like gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration and crookedness.
Dental veneers and Lumineers are great options for patients who wish to improve the appearance of their teeth without undergoing several separate procedures, which can take a long time.
Lumineers are a brand of veneer supplied by only some dentists. They have the advantages of being less bulky, less expensive and easier to apply. At Creative Dentistry & MedSpa of Atlanta, we offer Lumineers and veneers to our patients.
The Difference Between Lumineers and Veneers
Porcelain veneers can improve the color and alignment of your teeth. They are permanently attached to your teeth with a dental cement, but the application process is time-consuming.
Lumineers, on the other hand, require less work to be done before they are placed on a patient’s teeth, so the application process is shorter. In addition, they are not permanent.
However, Lumineers do not last as long as veneers. They are also less effective at concealing significantly discolored or damaged teeth.
Which Dental Treatment is Best for You?
Veneers and Lumineers are both viable options for addressing aesthetic dental flaws. Neither option compromises the structural integrity of the patient’s teeth, and both allow the individual to smile confidently after treatment.
