Lumineers are made from a patented material: When thinking about veneers, what’s available on the market today are made from porcelain, but Lumineers are made from a patented ceramic material known as Cerinate.
Lumineers are stronger than traditional porcelain veneers: When compared with the porcelain from veneers, Cerinate ceramic material is incredibly strong. Veneers made look delicate, but they can withstand a significant amount of pressure that last for years to come.
Lumineers are thinner than traditional veneers: As stated above, Lumineers are much stronger than porcelain veneers, but they are thinner. This allows for an amazing aesthetic appeal, but it can also mean that you only need a minimal preparation work before this particular set of veneers are fitted, meaning that less enamel of your tooth needs to be buffed off to prepare for the Lumineers self. When getting Lumineers, the tooth structure remains perfectly intact.
Lumineers can last up to twice as long as porcelain veneers: Do to their thin structure, Lumineers may look fragile, but thanks to the type of material used in the making, they are very durable. They can last up to twice as long as other types of porcelain veneers, making them a great investment for the future of your mouth.
