Exclusive Porcelain

LUMINEERS porcelain veneers are made only from Cerinate Porcelain- a patented, ultra-strong porcelain manufactured exclusively in Santa Maria, California. Cerinate Porcelain is feldspathic porcelain reinforced with leucite crystals. The particular uniformity of the leucite crystals in Cerinate Porcelain helps it to resist cracking and crazing. The high strength of Cerinate allows LUMINEERS to be made contact lens-thin, without increased risk of breakage, so you can place veneers without the need for anesthetic, extensive prepping, or temporaries. Cerinate Porcelain has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, helping to prevent debonding or pop-offs, and can be either stacked or pressed.

Potentially Discomfort After

A better, but still flawed smile, as the procedure is not reversible like LUMINEERS because the original teeth have been shaved down causing your patient discomfort immediately after the procedure.

The LUMINEERS Difference

They’re not traditional veneers, they’re LUMINEERS – a difference you can see.

There’s simply no substitute for LUMINEERS. Unlike traditional veneers that involve a much longer more invasive process that can take months, LUMINEERS are the quick easy way–just 2 dentist visits– to a beautiful smile, beautiful you.

The traditional veneers process:
Traditional veneers are sometimes referred to as crowns or caps. These porcelain sleeves are placed over your teeth through a process that can demand the extensive grinding down of healthy tooth structure. This can require shots and many long dentist appointments.

Temporary crowns are placed on your teeth while your traditional veneers are made, it can take months before your veneers are ready. Your temporaries are then removed, which also may require shots and needles, and your permanent veneers are inserted. Sometimes additional appointments are required to ensure that your bite is correct.

Smile Solutions with Simple, Proven Techniques
Unlike traditional veneers, with LUMINEERS there’s no shots, no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. That’s because LUMINEERS are ultra-thin so they can simply be placed over your existing teeth.

Whether you transform your smile at Your LifeSmiles Chicago with LUMINEERS or LUMINEERS with LUMINATE in new LUMITray Technology, it takes only 2 easy visits to your dentist to bring out your beautiful smile. And when you catch a glimpse of your new smile, you’ll find that you just can’t stop smiling.

Thanks to the superior strength of Cerinate Porcelain, LUMINEERS can solve a variety of cosmetic issues without the tooth grinding and shots inherent in traditional veneers.

LUMINEERS do not require below the gum line placement, eliminating pushing the gum and subgingival health concerns such as gingivitis. And, with the proven placement system that includes Ultra-Bond and Tenure, you won’t have to worry about debondings or pop-offs that are frequently experienced with traditional veneers.

LUMINEERS cases can be completed in as few as two visits with no downtime, thanks to the fact that anesthesia, extensive prepping, and temporaries are not needed.

The LUMINEERS philosophy is to preserve natural tooth structure whenever possible. When choosing LUMINEERS, most patients are ideal for no-prep or minimal cosmetic contouring (enameloplasty only). Patients can decide how much reduction is best and choose the technique that best fits the case – no-prep, cosmetic contouring or minimal-prep.
