At its core, Lumineers, veneers are the same, only much thinner and when they are installed is not required grind their teeth, at least, so says advertising. In some cases, doctors still have little work, LUMINEERS are not otherwise on the tooth will fall smoothly and securely.          The thickness of Lumineers to 0,4 mm, unlike veneers, which thickness from 0,5 to 0,7 mm. At this thickness the strength of the ceramic lining is quite high. Abrasion do not need it due to the small thickness of the ceramic plates.

Compared with veneers, Lumineers are brighter and more white

. The service life of Lumineers is about 20 years.

Installing Lumineers do not require the expenditure of large amounts of time. You will only need two or three times to visit the dentist. The installation procedure takes place in three stages.

If not detected, it proceeds to clean and polish teeth, then removes the cast, following the example of which will be manufactured Lumineers. Cast is sent to the dental laboratory, where the actual design and ceramic plates.

Second Stage. At the doctor you're ready to try on Lumineers, if necessary, the doctor adjust the plate. Be extremely careful. If something is wrong, for example, you do not like color, shape, or you experience discomfort, be sure to tell the doctor, do not expect that eventually you get used to it, because after installing and fixing the Lumineers will make a correction impossible.

Step Three. At this stage, the proper installation of Lumineers. The doctor re-cleans, causing them a special composition, providing a more durable clutch plate with the teeth. Next Lumineers fixed on the surface with dental glue. This adhesive is resistant to acids formed in the oral cavity.

Lumineers advantages and disadvantages


Benefits of using lumineers ( + )

  • Have a natural and lasting color.
  • Ideal optical reflective effect similar to the enamel. Lumineers have full transparency. One of the main properties of enamel - transparency. This means that when light hits the surface of the enamel, it is not immediately reflected and partially penetrates into the enamel layer. Then this light is reflected from an opaque layer of tooth under the enamel. This transparency makes the tooth enamel distinctive appearance. Previously to improve the appearance of teeth used materials that were opaque or transparent, ie when restoring teeth with these materials do not ensure transparency. Therefore, light rays could not penetrate into the dental tissues deeply and directly reflected from the surface of these materials. Thus, these materials do not provide a complete resemblance to natural teeth, but only improves the appearance of a tooth. Light falling onto the surface of the Lumineers, can penetrate a certain depth inside the ceramics, and then reflected from the dental tissues. Therefore, a ceramic veneer is no different from the adjacent teeth.
  • Lumineers are resistant to staining. Earlier in dentistry for esthetic restorations using different materials. They had one drawback - changing colors, stains. This was due to the fact that these materials were permeable. By eating foods that have coloring properties (tea, coffee, wine, tobacco) changed the color of these restorations, spots appear on the teeth. Compared with these materials, Lumineers have the advantage that the surface of ceramic, but it is smooth and impervious. Itself glazed ceramic surface is resistant to dyes. Therefore, on the surface of the veneer stains do not happen.
  • Lumineers have a characteristic strength of porcelain, which allows you to change the shape.
  • Lumineers have excellent biocompatibility with the tissues of the gums. On the ceramic surface to a lesser extent accumulated plaque.
  • Lumineers have great resistance to abrasion and wear.
  • Longevity.

Another side of lumineers ( - )

  1. One of the main disadvantages of Lumineers is that they break down. When the veneer breaks, it can not be restored. In this case, the only solution is to replace a new one.
  2. If the veneer is just exfoliate from the tooth, then it can be glued back.
  3. Repair chipped Lumineers after cementation of tooth enamel is possible, but these designs are already short-lived due to the formation of pigmentation. Since these chips are restored with composite materials, there is a possibility of pigmentation on the border between the Lumineers and composite materials.
  4. Manufacture of Lumineers - an irreversible process, ie, in the manufacture of veneers dissects the hard tissue of teeth.
  5. Lumineers saves hundred thousands of people smiles

  6. Complexity in manufacturing techniques, fixation, time-consuming.
  7. After fixing the veneer to change its color is very difficult.
  8. Acidic foods can alter the surface of the ceramic lumineers veneer.
