Only a certified dentist can apply Lumineers to your teeth. Lumineers are only made from Cerinate porcelain, a patented product created by highly skilled lab technicians of Den-Mat Corporation. Lumineers can be used to regenerate existing bridgework and crowns; and correct chipped, fanged, uneven, crooked, spaced, discolored or stained teeth. Dental Lumineers can improve the appearance of the teeth but they cannot realign the jaw or correct overbites and under bites. Orthodontics is required to correct these more complicated problems.
Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers do not require cutting, drilling, grinding or filling of the existing tooth structure. As a result, the process is painless and no anesthetic or numbing shots are needed. In addition, because Lumineers require little or no modifications to the existing teeth, the procedure is completely reversible. The only disadvantage of Lumineers is they cannot be placed on unhealthy teeth. If you have periodontal disease, tooth decay, worn tooth enamel or bad fillings, treatment is needed to correct the situation before the Lumineer is applied.
Now you may be wondering how much do Lumineers cost? The cost of Lumineers start at $1,151.00. Your cost for Lumineers varies depending on your specific situation. We have various payment options and financing is available for those who qualify. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Dhayni, DDS at 858-277-5141 for a Lumineers consultation. Our office is located at 5222 Balboa Ave, Suite 72, San Diego, CA 92117.
Dr. Dhayni is a certified dentist specializing in cosmetic dentistry, such as Lumineers, servicing the California Area. If, both, you and Dr. Dhayni determine Lumineers is right for you, Dr. Dhayni can reshape, lengthen and/or whiten your teeth in as little as two visits.
In your first visit, Dr. Dhayni will determine the number of teeth that need to be repaired and take impressions of your teeth to create a precise working model. Your Lumineers are then made in the laboratory.
In your second visit, Dr. Dhayni will bond your Lumineers to your natural teeth. A harmless, curing light is used to harden the adhesive. In rare cases, Dr. Dhayni may require a third visit from you.
Lumineers are clinically proven to last up to 20 years without breaking, staining or pop-offs. In addition, all Lumineers come with a limited 5-year warranty.
