Oklahoma City Lumineers

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a particular brand of porcelain veneers made by the DenMat Company. Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of porcelain that can be bonded directly onto your teeth, transforming your smile. Lumineers are one brand of a new type of dental veneers that are called ultra-thin veneers. Traditional veneers are made about 0.5mm in thickness— about the thickness of a fingernail. The ultra-thin brands are made at about 0.3mm.

Alternatives to Lumineers

  • Other Brands of Porcelain Veneers: There are several other brands, including traditional or other ultra-thin brands. Dr. Swearingen can help you decide which brand is best for you.
  • Invisalign: Some people get veneers in order to straighten crooked teeth. However, if you are satisfied with the shape of your teeth, it is more conservative and more cost effective to get Invisalign. These are faster than traditional braces, and no one will know you are wearing them.
  • Dental Bonding: If you just have a chip or gap, tooth bonding is a great solution. Using a white composite material, the dentist can just do "touch ups" on your teeth. This way you are not stuck with extensive work when all you need is a tiny bit of cosmetic work.
