Unique Characteristics & Features Of DaVinci Veneers
DaVinci Veneers are applied using a permanent method to correct cracked, chipped, crooked, or discolored teeth. Cosmetic dentists will shave down the enamel on the teeth before applying the veneers. The removal of enamel is a permanent process that leaves the teeth vulnerable until the veneer is applied or if the veneers are every removed. Permanent damage to the enamel can be off-putting for some clients. DaVinci Veneers also often take 2 visits to be applied completely. Clients who are okay with the longer installation time and enamel shaving often choose DaVinci Veneers because they create a more natural appearance. By shaving down the enamel, it allows for the veneer to be thicker and stronger without sacrificing the end appearance.
Unique Characteristics & Features Of Lumineer Veneers
Lumineer Veneers are often simply referred to as Lumineers. Applying Lumineers does not require the enamel to be shaved down in order for them to be installed. The less invasive application process means that the Lumineers can be removed years later and the teeth underneath would not be any more vulnerable than when they were installed. Lumineers are made from a thinner layer of porcelain than DaVinci Veneers. Lumineers are still a little bulkier than other veneers because they are placed over the tooth without shaving it down. Applying Lumineers is faster than installing DaVinci Veneers, but the process requires a more skilled hand. Only work with the best in cosmetic dentistry for Lumineer application.
