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.

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

Are lumineers a brand of veneers?

Friday, February 25th, 2011
Q.
Hi, are lumineers a brand of veneers? if so are they the best kind? my friend just had lumineers and her teeth look fantastic! How much would they cost for a whole mouth set on average? thank you for your time.
A.
Yes, lumineers are a brand.  There are many different brands but all are basically the same.  They are all thin shells of ceramic which are custom designed to the specifications set forth by the dentist.  Fees will vary depending upon the expertise of the dentist, but usually a range of $900-$2500.
