Lumineers Q & A

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a type of veneer. Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that’s ideal for correcting a wide range of smile problems, including:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Too-short teeth

The veneer works by laying over the front surface of your tooth so people see the veneer rather than the tooth itself. Traditionally, this process has required removing a portion of the enamel on the front of your tooth to make space for the veneer, allowing it to lay flush with your gumline and surrounding teeth. 

But Pacific Coast Smiles offers Lumineers. These extremely thin veneers are designed so that almost no preparation is required to fit the veneer on your tooth. This delivers several notable benefits.

Why should I choose Lumineers?

Lumineers are designed to transform your tooth with a veneer that’s the thickness of a contact lens. This thin design minimizes the need for tooth preparation. While traditional veneers require the grinding away of enamel on the front of your tooth to make space for the veneer, Lumineers are so thin your Pacific Coast Smiles provider only needs to perform minimal preparations on any tooth getting a Lumineer. That makes the process pain-free. 

It also means you won’t need to worry about an awkward-feeling or looking temporary veneer while you wait for your veneer to be created. And it means that should you ever choose to get your veneers removed, your natural tooth will still be strong and functional. 

If you’re interested in Lumineers, Pacific Coast Smiles is the right place to get them. Dr. Ouellet was personally trained by the inventor of Lumineers. He’s been placing them for over three decades and has trained doctors all over the world in this groundbreaking cosmetic dentistry. 

How long do Lumineers last?

With proper care, Lumineers can last two decades or more. And because Dr. Ouellet is so experienced in Lumineers, visiting his office for your routine oral exams ensures they last as long as possible. 

Whether you have a single tooth that bothers you or you’re looking for a full smile transformation, Lumineers deliver. To get them placed by one of the industry leaders in this type of veneers, call Dr. Ouellet at Pacific Coast Smiles or make your appointment online today.
