Veneers vs. Lumineers- Which One is Suitable for You?

Posted By Calvin  Neal     July 29, 2021

Traditional Veneers
 
 They are also more costly than composite veneers. Veneers are used in cosmetic dentistry to fix a variety of issues. They can be used to repair and strengthen the exterior of a damaged or crooked tooth. They can also be used to lengthen a tooth or cover fillings that have become discolored over time. These veneers will not change color, have a natural look, and are very strong.

Veneers do require re-shaping of the tooth because they are placed on the tooth, creating more bulk to the tooth, therefore the dentist sill shave about 2mm from the surface of the tooth to reduce the bulkiness. This causes the tooth to lose its natural enamel and is only protected by the porcelain veneer.
 
The downfalls of veneers are they are not usually repairable should they chip or crack, because of the removal of enamel your teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold, teeth can still experience decay and cavities, clenching and grinding teeth with veneers may cause them to crack or chip. Porcelain veneers are custom-made and should be replaced every 5-10 years.
 
Lumineers
 
Lumineers Veneers are a newer, somewhat improved version of the porcelain veneer. They have very similar functions and benefits to porcelain veneers. However, placing a lumineer on your tooth does not involve the shaving of the enamel from the tooth, the lumineer can simply be placed on the top of the tooth.
 
Lumineers Veneers Houston is much thinner than a porcelain veneer, about as thick as a contact lens. However, their durability is very good and when added to the tooth becomes an even stronger structure. They do not require any changes to the original tooth when applied, therefore if you decide to remove the lumineers, your original tooth will still be intact. Lumineers are not permanent, however, they have been proven to last up to 20 years.

What is the Process?
 
The process for getting veneers or lumineers is pretty similar. The installation can be done in as little as two visits to your dentist's office. After an initial consultation, there will be a scheduled dentist visit where any prep work would be completed. This would likely include impressions of your teeth, and if you need any type of Temporary Veneers Houston that will be placed until the permanent one would come in.
 
A second visit would be the fitting and attaching of the product; making sure the basic size, shape, and color are all right, and that the patient is happy. Once the product is placed, the Houston veneers specialist would trim, shape, and adjust the veneers or lumineers.
 
What is the Cost?
 
Because this type of product is considered cosmetic, or elective, treatment, most insurance will not cover the cost. Lumineers and traditional veneers can cost anywhere from $800 to $2000 per tooth, on a case-by-case basis, depending on needs.
