LUMINEERS® by CERINATE are a unique product that can produce straighter teeth, permanently whiter teeth, and a brighter smile, all without pain or the removal of tooth structure. LUMINEERS® are porcelain veneers that are safe, painless and permanent. They can correct stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth. While traditional porcelain veneers call for the sensitive tooth structure to be removed, this is not a requirement for LUMINEERS®. If tooth reduction is required, it is often only small amounts of enamel that need to be removed and the sensitive area of the tooth is not affected. This means no anesthetic is required and there is no possibility of sensitivity after the procedure.
LUMINEERS® are created using an extremely strong porcelain. What this means for you is that they are able to be much thinner than traditional porcelain veneers, and therefore, more closely resemble natural teeth.
