New Jersey Lumineers®
Lumineers* are a brand of ultrathin porcelain veneers that are designed beautify, whiten, and straighten your smile all at the same time. The advantage of using an ultrathin veneer is that it makes it possible to place porcelain veneers without shaving the tooth at all. Dr. Hurley has not used this particular brand, but has used other brands of ultrathin porcelain veneers that she feels are more beautiful than Lumineers, which tend to be a little too opaque. A more translucent porcelain looks more natural, though it does require more artistic skill on the part of the dentist.
If you are interested in Lumineers, give our office a call at 908-781-2727, or visit our make an appointment page. Dr. Hurley would be happy to evaluate your smile and tell you whether or not you would be a candidate for ultrathin porcelain veneers.
Conventional porcelain veneers only require a small amount of shaving. Read more about conventional porcelain veneers here.
