Porcelain Veneers or Lumineers?

It’s something you never hope will happen to your teeth, but unfortunately, most are vulnerable to it. Imperfections can occur to your teeth due to progressive wear-and-tear that takes place causing gaps, chips, discoloration, misalignment, and more. But there’s no need to worry. If you recognize your teeth as becoming more and more imperfect, there are ways to fix it – the most popular being the addition of porcelain veneers or lumineers increasing the value of your smile. Continue reading below and see which are right for you.

What’s The Difference?

As it turns out, there’s virtually no difference between lumineers and porcelain veneers. Lumineers are just a brand of porcelain veneers that’s predominantly marketed as a No Shot, No Pain, No Prep veneer. Different laboratories have a name for their own veneers, however, the brands of porcelain used may vary.

Are Lumineers Right For You?

First, ask yourself if you’re looking for a veneer that requires little or no tooth reduction. If so, then lumineers might be right for you. However, to do a minimal or no tooth reduction veneer, you have to have a good esthetic outcome with an additive situation (spaces between the teeth that are short).

If you do happen to have an additive situation and want a minimal or no tooth reduction veneer, you need to consider the risks that accompany having one. If you’re trying to mask the underlying tooth color, your will likely look unnaturally chunky and flat white


If your concern is esthetics then it’s usually best to remove some tooth structure. The removal of structure allows the dental ceramist to layer the porcelain and build opalescence and natural color into the veneer. This also disallows the veneer from having the big, fat, chunky look.

Choosing The Right Expert Paired With The Best Value

The final result, no matter if you choose Lumineers or porcelain veneers, all depends upon the experience and skill of the dentist. When looking for the right dentist, visit their website and browse through some of their material. Signs that show you’re choosing a good dentist would be if their site has photographic evidence of before and after pics and, of course, if they have good reviews.

Also, when looking for a dentist paired with good value, consider these two factors: skill and geographic location. Typically, dentists with a lot of experience and in a high-cost-of-living area will have higher fees. And if you find a dentist who offers veneers at a ridiculous fee, you might want to think twice. High-quality veneers from an experienced dentist in Broward, Dade, or Palm Beach County can cost from $1000-2000 per tooth.

The one thing to keep in mind is this: you don’t want to purchase in haste and then regret your decision later. It can be much more expensive to remove your veneers.
