We are delighted that our dentist Allan Rennie is certified to offer clients the amazing Lumineers made with patented Cerinate porcelain. These extremely thin veneers are made and developed at the Cerinate Smile Design Studio in America and use a unique type of porcelain for dazzling results with very little or no tooth preparation.
Veneers and Lumineers
Veneers are thin tooth-shaped layers of composite or porcelain placed on the front of natural teeth to produce beautiful smiles. Lumineers are different to traditional veneers because they are made from patented Cerinate porcelain. They require very little or no enamel removal and are thus less destructive than traditional veneers or crowns.
What are the advantages of Lumineers?
There is minimal tooth preparation, they are strong and durable and last for many years. As the tooth enamel is often not damaged or interfered with the treatment is usually reversible.
Why should I consider Lumineers?
If you have stained, discoloured, chipped or worn teeth, and you are longing for a beautiful new smile,then this could be a great treatment choice.
What are the alternatives?
The alternatives include other types of veneers and crowns, but these require more tooth reduction than Lumineers. Alternatively in some cases orthodontics could be considered.
How long do they last?
The material is very strong and hard-wearing and they should last for several years provided that they are well maintained. This means good oral hygiene, regular dental check ups and avoidance of trauma to your front teeth.
What does the treatment involve?
Impressions are taken and are sent to the DenMat laboratory in the USA along with photographs and a description and shade of the veneers you want. The Lumineers are created by experienced dental technicians and then returned to us by Airmail to be bonded onto your teeth. Treatment takes place over two sessions and your dentist will advise you when to make your appointments.
