With so many different types of veneers, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for you. There are many things to consider when deciding on dental veneers. One question that is often asked is Lumineers Vs Veneers, what are the differences?
Lumineers are still a type of veneer but they differ from general porcelain veneers. For starters, Lumineers are much thinner than veneers and this helps them to give a very natural appearance. Many people opt for Lumineers based on the aesthetic finish they offer. However, there are also other benefits. Due to Lumineers being so thin (around the thickness of a contact lens) it often means that the teeth do not need to be prepared beforehand. Preparation involves shaving a small amount of enamel off the teeth. Even though it is only a small amount this can still mean that the dental veneers need to remain in place for life. Whereas with Lumineers very little or no enamel shaving means that the teeth can remain in their natural state. Lumineers are generally a little more expensive than porcelain veneers, however, they can last much longer so can work out much more cost-effective in the long run.
