Lumineers

Lumineers are natural-looking and extraordinarily strong ultra-thin porcelain that gives an instant whitening smile that lasts. They are bonded to your front teeth with the thickness of a contact lens. Most people will generally have 6-8 front teeth restored. This entire process is done in two visits and takes about 2-3 weeks to complete.

The advantage of Lumineers is that they do not stain and keep their natural look for a long time. Another great advantage is they preserve your tooth structure with very little drilling.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are used to reshape misaligned or chipped teeth. Similar to Lumineers, they are an ultra-thin material bonded to the front of the teeth. They can also help to close spaces and whiten teeth. An advantage of composite veneers is that they are less expensive than porcelain veneers and can be done in one visit. Disadvantages are they can stain over time and need to be replaced or fixed more often.
