What is the difference between veneers and Lumineers?
Lumineers are much thinner than veneers, and while veneers are thin themselves, Lumineers are about the thickness of a contact lens. This often results in less prep work before application than veneers do.
How are veneers and Lumineers applied?
She then makes a mold of your teeth and sends the impression to a dental laboratory to have your veneers made, which can take 1-2 weeks to process.
Both veneers and Lumineers snugly fit over your teeth but are applied differently. Lumineers don’t need as much prep time because no enamel is removed and no anesthetic or shots are needed.
Dr. Zarghouni makes an impression of your bite and has the Lumineers made for you, then you return to Prestigious Smiles Family Dentistry so she can apply them on top of your teeth.
