Disadvantages of Lumineers® and similar ultra-thin veneer products.

Disadvantages of Lumineers® and similar ultra-thin veneer products.

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

The placement of ultra-thin porcelain veneers, like Lumineers®, Vivaneers® or DURAThin®, or no  prep veneers using a no-drilling/no-shots protocol has its critics.

The two primary problem issues that are usually brought up are:

  • Placing them may result in below average esthetics. – Ultra-thin veneers have a reputation for needing to be comparatively opaque, as opposed to more translucent and lifelike like regular porcelain veneers.
  • Potential  Tooth bulkiness especially on the gumline
  • They may create tooth bulkiness. – No-drill (no tooth preparation) placement can easily result in bulky, over-contoured teeth.
Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

That can make new veneers hard to get use to. It can also make the teeth they’re placed on harder to properly clean.

Is the LUMINEERS procedure painful?

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

The LUMINEERS procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. They are ultra-thin, thus in most cases you will get a perfect fit without any grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the LUMINEERS procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means LUMINEERS look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are fitted.

What makes LUMINEERS® Teeth Veneers different from other veneers?

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

LUMINEERS ® BY CERINATE ® are porcelain tooth veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile.

  • No shaving: Your LUMINEERS dentist applies these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth with no grinding or shaving of your original teeth, transforming your teeth in a very short time
  • LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them
  • Contact lens thin: They really are very thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional teeth veneers) LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discoloured or misaligned teeth.

Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?

Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

Yes, Lumineers are completely reversible because there’s no grinding down of healthy tooth structure, in most cases. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.

The idea that ultra-thin veneers are “reversible” may help to create public demand for this procedure. But it seems true mostly in theory only. Yes, they can be ground off. But it’s not necessarily a quick process, nor is it likely that your tooth will be returned to its initial pristine condition.

The bond that’s been created during the placement process is very strong and the cement that’s been used typically remains stubbornly attached to the tooth’s surface.

It can be trimmed and buffed off. But that’s not necessarily an easy task, especially when a number of teeth are involved. And it has to be expected that the surface of the tooth’s enamel will be shaved and scuffed up at least somewhat during the process.

I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive process. Can I get Lumineers instead?

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

In most cases, yes! Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, Lumineers will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don’t get with braces.

Potential problems and concerns associated with Lumineers® placement.

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

1) Difficulty in achieving a natural-looking end result.

a) Ultra-thin veneers frequently need to be very opaque. Can’t get the same lifelike appearance with Lumineers®

The wafer thin veneers placed using a no-drilling protocol are often criticized because with some applications they must be made out of comparatively more-opaque porcelain, or placed using relatively more-opaque cement, so they are able to adequately mask over the color of the natural tooth structure that lies underneath.

Why is having opaque veneers a problem?
VIEW

Why is having opaque veneers a problem?

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

The whole issue of opaqueness has to do with how natural looking the veneered tooth will end up looking.

Tooth enamel, the part of a tooth that a veneer tries to mimic, is translucent (light is able to pass through it). And a great deal of what gives a tooth its lustrous look has to do with the way light enters into this layer and is then reflected back out.

If a veneer (or veneer/cement combination) doesn’t accurately simulate enamel’s light-handling effect (as in it’s too opaque and keeps light from entering), your tooth’s appearance won’t look quite right. It might look white, but it won’t look perfectly natural.

Case where an ultra-thin veneer is used to lighten the color of a darkly stained tooth.

  • Since it’s so thin, to effectively mask the stained tooth structure that lies underneath the veneer must be made using relatively opaque porcelain.
  • But due to this opaqueness, light will tend to reflect off the veneer’s front surface and not penetrate into it like it does when it strikes enamel
  • Because of this difference in light handling, the veneer won’t look truly lifelike.

Matching the shade with the neighbouring teeth will be difficult with Lumineers
VIEW

Matching the shade with the neighbouring teeth will be difficult with Lumineers

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

Because they are thicker, conventional porcelain veneers can be made out of comparatively more-translucent porcelain, yet they are still able to mask dark tooth structure that lies underneath them.

That means light will be able to enter into and reflect back out of them in a fashion that truly mimics the lustrous look of a natural tooth.

Also, a thicker laminate generally offers the dental technician more opportunity to incorporate characterization and shading qualities into the veneer itself by way of using different shades of porcelain in its fabrication

A lot of people simply don’t appreciate this difference.

We do have to admit that when it comes to the issue of obtaining a precisely lifelike result, many people just don’t seem to care.

The ease and pain-free advantage that no-drilling/no-shots technique offers simply outweighs the disadvantage of a less than perfectly natural-looking outcome.

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

Especially in the case where only one or a few veneers are being placed, the increased characterization that’s possible with a (thicker) conventional veneer may be an important asset in creating a perfect match with the patient’s neighboring teeth.

It’s the characterization of a veneer that helps it to look lifelike or match well

It would be relatively difficult to mimic this look with an ultra-thin no-prep veneer.

Why Lumineers® don't usually cost less than conventional veneers

Best Lumineers Melbourne | Porcelain Veneer Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne CBD

The total amount of treatment time that a dentist must set aside for a no-drill Lumineers® case is less than that needed for conventional veneer placement. (That’s because there’s less work to do during the 1st visit.)

But this cost-savings is at least in part offset by the fact that the dental laboratory bill for the Lumineers® will likely be greater.
