Lumineers vs. Veneers: What’s the Difference?

fairfield dental artsEveryone should feel comfortable and confident when smiling. If you want to improve the appearance of your smile by hiding chips, cracks, gaps and other dental flaws, there are several different cosmetic dental options available to you. However, two of the most popular complete smile makeovers are accomplished with lumineers and veneers. While they are both similar in how they improve the appearance of your smile, there are also many differences between the two procedures.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded right over your existing teeth. They are a great way to cover up cosmetic dental issues. However, the process of applying veneers involves removing some of your natural tooth enamel and reshaping your existing teeth before the veneers are placed.

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are not as invasive as veneers. With this cosmetic procedure, your teeth are left unchanged and there will be no damage to the enamel. Lumineers are placed right on top of your natural smile, giving you a beautiful Hollywood smile.
