If you have discolored, crooked, or otherwise imperfect teeth, you might consider a cosmetic procedure. Both dental veneers and Lumineers are popular options for individuals who want to correct their smiles. So what is the difference between veneers and Lumineers? Which choice is right for you? We’ll discuss these two options below so you and decide which procedure you’d like to try.
Dental veneers have been a popular choice for years. Veneers are made of a thin, semi-permanent material and are attached to the surface of your teeth. While veneers do not correct underlying problems that can lead to misshapen or discolored teeth, they do effectively cover the teeth for a completely new smile. In order to install veneers, your dentist needs to remove some of your tooth enamel. Some patients are uncomfortable with the idea of a part of their original tooth being chipped away.
Lumineers are a newer option and a great alternative to traditional dental veneers. Like veneers, Lumineers can transform your smile by masking imperfections. Your dentist will not need to remove any tooth enamel in order to fit you with Lumineers, so many patients are interested in Lumineers as a less invasive option.
