Many people aren’t sure of the difference between traditional dental veneers and Lumineers, so they aren’t sure which one is right for them. Of course, a qualified cosmetic dentist can make an appropriate assessment and recommendation, but it can be helpful to understand the advantages of each option.

The good thing about both veneers and Lumineers is that they are relatively quick procedures, and they can create a brand new smile in just a couple of visits. With a skilled doctor, regular dental check-ups and routine cleaning, either one should last you many years. They are both durable, as long as they are taken care of, and they look and work pretty much like natural teeth.
Lumineers Vs. Traditional Veneers
Traditional veneers used to be available almost exclusively to Hollywood actors, but they have since become a solution for just about anyone. They work by placing a thin porcelain shell over the natural teeth, covering over discolorations, chipped or broken teeth and giving a stunning and attractive result.
They work best for straightening crowded teeth, filling in gaps and giving a straighter and more symmetrical look, and they don’t add a lot of bulk. However, teeth do have to be prepared by having some of the tooth structure removed in order to fit them in place. This means that the procedure is irreversible, so in the future they can only be replaced with a newer set of veneers.
Lumineers are very thin, so they are considered a more pleasant and comfortable way to create a bright, white smile. There is no need to remove tooth structure, so there is no risk of creating tooth sensitivity. In fact, in many cases, the procedure can be reversed later, if the patient decides they don’t them anymore.
Because they are so thin, Lumineers don’t cover the natural teeth as much, and because they are translucent, they might not hide severe discoloration very well. In those instances, traditional veneers are probably a better choice.
Either way, Dr. Hoffman will find the best way to correct your tooth problems and give you the stunning smile you’ve always wanted. In fact, there’s no tooth problem that he can’t fix, and because he practices sedation dentistry, every visit will be stress free and pain free.
