Frequently asked questions

How are Lumineers different from traditional veneers?

Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and ultra translucent. While
traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers
are so thin, little to no tooth reduction is necessary. At the same time, Lumineers resist microleakage and

Are there any other Lumineers?

No. Lumineers can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain and Lumineers with Luminate in new
LUMITray Technology is the only porcelain veneer available with tray technology. These revolutionary
processes are crafted through a proprietary process unavailable anywhere other than Den-Mat Holdings,
LLC, one of the nation's largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.

Is the Lumineers procedure painful?

Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten
your teeth. Traditional veneers require the grinding down of healthy tooth structure to accommodate them,
Lumineers are ultra-thin, so in most cases, you will get a perfect fit without shots, needles, or grinding down
of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or
sensitivity, which means Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive

Can I get Lumineers instead?

In most cases, yes. Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is
necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, Lumineers will change the shape and alignment of teeth,
making them look straighter and more uniform.

How long will Lumineers last?

Clinical testing has proven that a Lumineers procedure lasts and looks great for over 20 years. Lumineers
also offer a warranty and are replaced at no charge. Certain restrictions do apply.

Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?

Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure. Your
natural teeth are still intact and strong.

With Lumineers, can I still chew gum and eat my favorite sticky foods?

There are no limitations to what you can eat or drink as Lumineers are placed over original teeth in the most
durable way possible. However, you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and
cleaning to keep your Lumineers looking their best.

Why have I never heard of Lumineers before?

More than 13,000 dentists nationwide use Lumineers and we continue to educate the dental community on
the procedure. Kft.

The Lumineers difference

They’re not veneers, they’re Lumineers – a difference you can see.

There’s simply no substitute for Lumineers. Unlike traditional veneers that involve a much longer more
painful process that can take months, Lumineers are the quick easy way–just 2 dentist visits– to a beautiful
smile, beautiful you.

The traditional veneers process

Traditional veneers are sometimes referred to as crowns or caps. These porcelain sleeves are placed over
your teeth through a process that can demand the extensive grinding down of healthy tooth structure. This
can require painful shots, and many long dentist appointments.
Temporary crowns are placed on your teeth while your traditional veneers are made, it can take months
before your veneers are ready. Your temporaries are then removed, which also may require shots and
needles, and your permanent veneers are inserted. Sometimes additional appointments are required to
ensure that your bite is correct.

The Lumineers difference

Unlike traditional veneers, with Lumineers there’s no shots, no drilling of sensitive tooth structure, and no
pain. That’s because Lumineers are ultra-thin so they can simply be placed over your existing teeth.

Whether you transform your smile with Lumineers or Lumineers with Luminate in new LUMITray Technology,
it takes only 2 easy visits to your dentist to bring out your beautiful smile. And when you catch a glimpse of
your new smile, you’ll find that you just can’t stop smiling.

“My smile looks fantastic now that I have Lumineers. People who have known me all my life stop me and
admire how nice my teeth look. I refer you to all of my friends. Thanks for everything.”
Lynn P., USA

"My teeth are very sensitive to hot and cold, but the process of putting the Lumineers on was absolutely
painless. It was fantastic. I am still surprised that there was no pain involved. I would not have gotten the
Lumineers if it meant grinding. I think some people used to think that I was a little cold because I would not
smile with a full smile. Now I can, and I don't feel inhibited in any way."
W. Bayne, UK

“The results are fantastic and the procedure was so simple and fast. I love my Lumineers. They really make
a difference in my appearance and even my confidence. It’s great that I can smile now and know that people
are staring because they look so terrific.”
Brandon R., USA

"After my car accident in January 2006, I feared my smile would never be the same again. Now with
Lumineers, my broken and discolored teeth are not only more beautiful and whiter, but they have been
straightened so that they won't break further in the future."
P. Rose, Ireland

“Stained, chipped, crooked…you name it, my teeth were horrific. I don’t think I’ve ever smiled with my lips
parted until now. Now that I have Lumineers I am so upset that I never considered getting them sooner. The
process was so painless and quick. In only a couple appointments I had a brand new smile. I am overjoyed
with the results. Dr. Dhayni did such a marvelous job. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Dhayni and his
friendly staff! Thanks for everything.”
Michelle I., USA

The one thing that I am really excited about with Lumineers is that they don't have to be specially treated.
With Lumineers, I can just brush my teeth and go, which is a wonderful thing because I know if I had
traditional veneers or other procedures that would require extra attention, I probably would not carry through.
However, with Lumineers, all I have to do is brush and floss my teeth like they were just my normal teeth and
I am good to go. It makes me feel so good now. With Lumineers I can't stop grinning. I am grinning ear to
