LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE® A Better Way to Shape Your Teeth
Lumineers are the fast and painless solution for chipped, misaligned, or discolored teeth. They are as thin as contact lenses, and you do not need to have healthy tooth structure removed during your procedure! Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are designed to protect your teeth without inflicting any damage.
Lumineers are made from Cerinate porcelain, which is a patented design that can only be found at Cerinate Smile Design Studio. This patented design has been clinically proven to last up to twenty years, and is completely reversible.
Due to the specialized nature of Lumineers, dentists need additional training in order to perform this procedure. Dr. Couchman is qualified to work with Lumineers and can apply these contact-lens thin "smile shapers" with precision and finesse. Even when it comes to existing crowns and bridgework, Dr. Couchman can apply your Lumineers without having to replace any of the original work.
Here is a list of the great benefits Lumineers has to offer:
No local anesthetic required — This is a completely pain-free procedure
Original tooth structure remains intact — There is little to no cutting or grinding when you use
Lumineers! (Most regular veneers require extensive cutting and grinding in order to be applied properly.)
- Lumineers porcelain is patented — the patent is from Den-Mat Corporation, a trusted name in dental and oral care.
- Little to no preparation required
No teeth sensitivity after your procedure
- Just two visits are necessary

A great alternative to braces for most cases
