What are Lumineers?

Woman with curly hair smiling l Lumineers Wilmington DEIf you’re looking for a quick and effective way to make some cosmetic changes to your smile, Lumineers are an option you may want to consider. Lumineers can alter the appearance of your smile dramatically, and can be placed in just two visits to our Wilmington dental office.

What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are wafer-thin shells designed to replicate the appearance of your natural dental enamel. They are bonded to the surface of your teeth and can correct a number of problems:

  • Severely stained teeth
  • Unsightly spaces between teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven gums and teeth

Advantages Of Lumineers

One important advantage of Lumineers over traditional veneers is that they are much thinner, and, in most cases, we don’t need to make any changes to your natural teeth. Traditional veneers are thicker, making it necessary to remove some of your natural tooth structure to make them fit properly.

Since we don’t change the shape or appearance of your teeth with Lumineers, they can be removed if at some point you change your mind. Lumineers are durable and resilient and with proper care can last as long as 20 years. They are also generally more affordable than traditional veneers.
