What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers and dental tools

Lumineers are thin, plastic, ceramic coverings that fit over the front of your teeth. Just like porcelain veneers, they are designed to cover minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, and surface stains. They much thinner than your traditional veneer and require no altering of your natural teeth.

How Do They Work?

When you arrive for your appointment, your cosmetic dentist in Tappan will want to discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve with your new smile. Digital x-rays and impressions will be taken, allowing dental lab technicians to customize your Lumineers.

Once your dentist has reviewed your oral and overall health history and decides you are a candidate for treatment, you will set up your second appointment, which will entail the placement of your Lumineers. During this second visit, we will take your custom-made restorations and place them directly onto the enamel of your teeth. Because of how thin Lumineers are, there is no need to file down your natural teeth.
