Luminners, the trendy veneers

Your way of smiling can completely change with a good smile design. Aesthetic medicine, especially Esthetic Dentistry, is advancing day by day in the development of new products and trends in search of the best for patients who want to enhance their appearance. Currently, there is a significant push in the development of dental veneers or laminates. In addition to synthetic resin or composite veneers, we also find feldspathic ceramic veneers or lithium disilicate veneers, also known as veneers.

As a novelty, the trend is now focused on thinner veneers known as 'contact lenses' or Lumineers. These thinner porcelain veneers are more translucent and more resistant than conventional porcelain, resulting in a more natural appearance overall.


What are Lumineers veneers and what are their advantages?Son carillas de porcelana extrafinas, de unos 0, 3 mm de grosor.

  1. The significant difference with conventional veneers is that with Lumineers, it is generally not necessary to trim the tooth, or the required trimming is minimal.

  2. Since tooth trimming is minimal or nonexistent, provisional veneers are not required, and anesthesia is not needed in most cases.

  3. They are made of lithium disilicate, a more durable and ultra-translucent ceramic that reflects light very well, resulting in a permanent color and a very natural appearance.

When are they recommended?

  • To restore color to stained, discolored, darkened, or yellowed teeth.

  • To align slightly crooked teeth (does not replace orthodontics).

  • To eliminate spaces (gaps) between teeth.

  • To restore broken teeth.

  • In aged dental restorations.

What care should be taken with these veneers?

The lifespan of Lumineers veneers depends on the patient's habits, usage, and care; however, they are designed to last for many years. Proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are recommended to ensure their longevity.

Remember that smile design is the combination of procedures we can perform to make your smile spectacular, and veneers are just one of those procedures. Veneers are the ideal option for patients seeking a non-invasive procedure to enhance their original teeth and achieve a beautiful smile.
