Lumineers are the most significant advancement in 9,000 years of dentistry. They are contact lens thin porcelain shields that are bonded to the front of your teeth to create dramatic changes in your smile. The beauty about lumineers are that they require little or no preparation; there is no need for shots or drilling and no removal of sensitive tooth structure. Lumineers can correct a wide variety of unsightly dental distortion such as: tooth discoloration, noticeable gaps, permanent stains and broken or misshapen teeth. Lumineers can even bond to existing crowns and bridgework without having to replace them.
