What is the difference between Lumineers and Veneers? Which one is better?
I have been asked this questions several times and here I am trying to explain the myths and facts about Lumineers without using technical terms.
What are Veneers?
What are Lumineers?
There is a dental lab in California called Denmat. They, like all other dental labs in the united states, make veneers. They use basically the same material and techniques as other labs. They brand it Lumineers and advertise their brand so that you think only Lumineers can be done without shaving down your teeth or only Lumineers can be as thin as 0.3mm.
Are Lumineers better than Veneers?
The short answer is no. However. this question does not make sense because Lumineers is brand name used by a certain dental lab for their veneers. They use basically the same material and techniques as other labs.
Which one is thinner or can be done without shaving down my teeth?
