Difference Between Lumineers And The All-Porcelain Veneers
We are often asked if we offer Lumineer brand dental veneers. Lumineers is just a brand name for a type of porcelain dental veneer made by a company called DenMat. While they are a good product, Dr. Jay Gohel feels that the type of porcelain veneer we use is better because it is more natural looking and stronger. Dr. Gohel has created thousands of beautiful, healthy smile makeovers using eMax porcelain from Ivoclar Vivadent, a leading international dental company.
Porcelain dental veneers are one of the best and quickest solutions for dark teeth or teeth that are chipped, stained, crooked or have gaps and spaces between them. Porcelain dental veneers are most commonly used to create smile makeovers and are also an option for patients that are simply looking to improve their smile or want a beautiful smile. Renowned Delaware County Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Jay Gohel can correct a wide range of dental issues using porcelain veneers and create a healthy, beautiful, natural-looking smile that corrects dental problems that affect how your teeth look and function.
What Are Porcelain Veneers And/Or “No-Prep” Veneers?
A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain bonded to the front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are an ideal way to correct stained, spaced, chipped or crooked teeth. Veneers will transform your smile to a bright, straight, natural-looking smile!. Imagine that in just two visits you can have a custom-made smile of your dreams.
LUMINEERS CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE THAT GOAL BY CORRECTING:
- dark teeth
- stained or discolored teeth
- gaps or spaces
- old crowns and fillings
- crooked or crowded teeth
- small or chipped teeth
- old fillings and cavities
At Media Dental Associates we use porcelain veneers and gentle no-prep veneer alternatives. Porcelain veneers are designed in a style and proportion to fit your face, look naturally beautiful, and give you a great new smile you’ll be proud to show off. Veneers make your smile straight and white, resistant to staining and discoloring, and in many cases are stronger than your natural teeth. The end result is what we call a "Smile Makeover" because your beautiful, new smile will make you feel more attractive, confident, and like a new you!
Lumineer Placement Procedure
The placement of porcelain veneers is one that requires the skill, precision, and artistry of a talented cosmetic dentist. Having your smile made over with veneers at our office will only take about two office visits. During your first visit at Media Dental Associates, our doctor will consult with you regarding your expectations. Size, shape, and color of the porcelain will be discussed. Your teeth will be prepared for the final restorations, and temporaries will be placed while your case is crafted by a master ceramist. At the second visit, your case is seated, and you leave with a beautiful, brand new smile! This procedure can be done in as little as 1 week!

Crooked and chipped teeth can have their appearances improved to give you a beautiful new smile. Any broken teeth can be repaired using pocelain crowns, or caps, that can be color-matched to your veneers.
