I have 4 front teeth with heavy stains on them. Between Lumineers and Veneers which is better? Pros and cons? – Amber
Amber – Lumineers are veneers. Lumineers is just one brand name of porcelain veneers. There are many other brand names of porcelain veneers. Lumineers are ultra-thin, very hard, and are often placed with no preparation to the teeth.
There are other brands of porcelain veneers that are just as thin and durable as Lumineers. Lumineers has a lab that makes their porcelain veneers, and many dentists feel that the results are not personalized to the patient.
There are cosmetic dentists who prefer other brands of porcelain veneers, because they get better results with them. These dentists have a private master ceramist who personalizes the veneers to the individual patient. The result is that you can’t tell the difference between the veneers and your natural teeth.
Speak with an experienced cosmetic dentist regarding your particular situation to determine which brand of porcelain veneers is best for your case.
