What is the difference between veneers and lumineers?

Q.
Is it me or is there little difference between veneers and lumineers? Do they botht do the same job or is one made of better material. Basically, what is the differece?
A.
There is little difference in that veneers and Lumineers are both made of porcelain and share the technique of being minimally invasive. 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.

What is the difference between veneers and lumineers?

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

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
