Lumineers and Veneers: Which is Right for You?

Posted .

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Do you ever wish there was something you could do to achieve a radiant teeth? If you would like to improve the appearance of your smile, we recommend considering dental veneers and lumineers.

These thin shells are especially useful if you have small gaps in your smile or discolored, stained, misshapen, or uneven teeth. These treatments are designed to match the color and shape of your smile..

While veneers and lumineers seem similar—and in fact have many things in common—they are also fairly different. For example, veneers are very durable. In fact, they can last up to twenty years if they are cared for properly. Veneers can also be more useful for those who grind their teeth—though we recommend speaking with your dentist for individualized advice.

Conversely, lumineers have two main benefits. The first benefit is that lumineers take less time to place. In fact, your dentist can typically place lumineers without the need for anesthesia. The second important thing to note is that lumineers can be removed. This means that if you aren’t happy with your veneers, you can remove them easily and try a different treatment.
