Are lumineers a healthier option for my teeth than veneers?

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011
Q.
Hi there

is it a better idea to have lumineers over veneers if your teeth only have a little staining? That is my only problem and teeth whitening hasn’t work, i don’t have crooked teeth or cracks or anything like that but i just hate the colour of my teeth. I’ve heard that lumineers are thinner than veneers and don;t require as much tooth shaving. is this true and in your opinion are they the best option for me?

thank you

A.
What is best for your situation is “prepless” veneers. “Prepless or minimal prep veneers” are veneers that can be placed over teeth with minimal or no shaving of the tooth. This type of veneer is the best type for you. Lumineers is a brand of prepless veneers. However, there are more natural porcelain materials that can be used with an outcome that is more beautiful and lifelike. Visit our website www.lernerlemongello.com for examples of minimal or no prep veneers. They are generally the cases where the teeth look pretty good before but much more natural and beautiful after.

What are better, veneers or lumineers?

Monday, November 7th, 2011
Q.
Will a dentist recommend veneers over lumineers due to the cost or vice versa or should they? I want to be sure I get what is best for me and most cost efficient as my insurance will not cover any of it. Thank you for your time and any help and advice you can give doctors
A.
A dentist should recommend to you what will give you the best result for your situation regardless of the cost. If you want the best for yourself you should ask for it. If cost is a factor than you will be faced with the choice of what is best for you based on what you can afford. I would find a dentist who doesn’t treat with only one type of veneer such as Lumineers. Lumineers are not the best veneers available but can be more economical. Visit our website at www.lernerlemongello.com to see examples of traditional porcelain veneers. Lumineers will not give you the same result. Dr. Lemongello

What effect will lumineers have on teeth?

Monday, June 27th, 2011
Q.
If you have lumineers placed, what happens to the teeth that they are placed on? Are they still able to stay healthy through normal teeth cleaning, or do special techniques need to be undertaken?
A.

The tooth underneath remains intact. Veneered teeth are maintained like natural teeth through normal oral hygiene and dental cleanings. There are no special techniques.

Would I be able to eat snacks if I got lumineers?

Monday, June 27th, 2011
Q.
If I were to have lumineers would I still be able to chew gum, and eat snack foods during the day like sweets and crisps?
A.
Yes to all the above….just use common sense in regards to the hardness of those products. Veneers are strong, but just like natural teeth they can break with injudicious care.

What is the average cost of 5 dental veneers?

Friday, June 24th, 2011
Q.
Would you be able to give me an estimate of how much it would cost to get 5 dental veneers? Also, would the type of veneer (porcelain for example) have an affect on the cost?
A.
hi, many thanks for your email, the cost of 5 porcelain veneers can vary dependant on which practice you chose to have the treatment done by and which technician is making the work. the cost per veneer can range from £500 – £1000. the type of veneer material is usually porcelain but many laboratory have now branded there veneers very much like clothing, so there are products such as mac veneers, lumineers, davinci veneers. do not be fooled though most are of similar quality and like buying into a brand can work out much more expensive. hope this is helpful.

Which of invislign or lumineers would you recommend?

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011
Q.
Would you recommend treatment such as invisalign over something like lunmineers? is it better to keep your own teeth or does that not really matter?
A.
hi many thanks for your email, my advice would be to try to keep your teeth, so i would always recommend orthodontics over veneers.

What is the difference between veneers and lumineers?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
Q.
Would you be able to tell me what the difference is between veners and lumineers. My dentists has recommended them both to me as I dont want braces but am not sure what the difference is?
A.

There is little difference in that veneers and Lumineers are both made of porcelain and share the technique of being minimally invasive. Porcelain veneers come in different qualities.  Lumineers are a proprietary form of porcelain veneers marketed by the company. However, traditional porcelain veneers fabricated by a skilled technician are much more artistically crafted in regards to beauty and natural appearance. Traditional veneers also have a better fit on the tooth and can be made of better materials than Lumineers. Dr. Lemongello

Should I go for Veneers of Lumineers?

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011
Q.
I dont want braces and therefore want veneers or possibly lumineers. but to decide can you tell me in what cases either treatment are suitable for. veneers seems to be the main one from what i gather but what would you say?
A.
Treatment to straighten teeth can be with veneers or with orthodontics.  Orthodontics will give you straighter teeth but will not impact the color or the form or the proportions of your teeth.  Veneers can attain all of the above.  Make sure you go to someone qualified to undertake this sort of treatment.

What is the difference between veneers and lumineers?

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011
Q.
What is the difference between veneers and lumineers? Do they both basically do the same job or are they different?
A.
Lumineers is nothing but a brand name for a veneer.  How they are applied to the teeth can be slightly different.  Lumineers are marketed as a “no preparation” technique.  This is often misinformation.  It is a rare occasion that a tooth can be veneered or lumineered without some sort of preparation
