Lumineers and porcelain veneers are similar in that both treatments are created from porcelain to improve crooked, misaligned, or yellow teeth. Both options are durable, strong, and discrete, mimicking the natural appearance of your teeth.

Because Lumineers and most traditional veneers are made of porcelain, they won’t change color or stain over time, and they are custom-made to feel comfortable and look natural. Porcelain veneers and lumineers have comparable costs.

Deciding whether you want regular veneers or Lumineers will most likely depend on your cosmetic dental goals. For patients wanting to take a more conservative approach, Lumineers are often a good option. For patients looking for a more durable solution, traditional veneers can usually withstand harder bite pressure.

Not every dentist is Lumineer certified. Our experienced cosmetic dentists at Ahwatukee Dentistry are Lumineer certified, and offer Lumineers for patients that don’t want any of their tooth’s surface removed for regular veneers. We will be able to discuss your options at your consult since some patient’s teeth could benefit more from traditional porcelain veneers over Lumineers. Call us today to learn more at 480-508-8200.
