A: LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is unique in that it is contact-lens-thin (approximately .2 mm) and super translucent. Traditional veneers are fused or bonded to teeth, and generally your dentist will need to grind down the tooth for a good fit. Since LUMINEERS is so thin, little to no tooth reduction is necessary. In addition, LUMINEERS resists micro-leakage and micro-cracking. Is there any other LU
A: No. LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain. This revolutionary porcelain is crafted through a proprietary process unavailable anywhere other than Den-Mat Holdings, LLC, one of the nation's largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.
A: It's true that because most veneer procedures require a substantial amount of tooth structure removal, that there is pain and discomfort involved. LUMINEERS is completely different because there is no need for grinding, cutting or filing of teeth in almost all cases. Consequently, no anesthetic or numbing shots are needed. Plus, no uncomfortable temporaries are required while you wait for LUMINEERS to be created. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post-placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means LUMINEERS will look natural and feel comfortable from the start.
A: In most cases, yes. Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, LUMINEERS will change the shape and alignment of teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform.
A: LUMINEERS has unparalleled longevity. Clinical testing has proven that a LUMINEERS procedure lasts and looks great for up to 20 years. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE also offers a 5-year Warranty and are replaced at no charge. Certain restrictions do apply.
A: Yes, LUMINEERS are completely reversible. This is largely due to the no reduction in sensitive tooth structure so that the natural teeth are still in tact and strong.
A: There are no limitations to what you can eat or drink as LUMINEERS are placed over original teeth in the most durable way possible. However, you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning to keep your LUMINEERS in good condition and to qualify for the Warranty.
