"My smile is very important to me. I never really had huge issues with my teeth but I did have some spacing that I was not happy with. Deciding to get invisalign was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The hard part was finding a facility that would tend to my needs and make me feel at home. I researched for quite some time before actually picking a place, but I finally ended up choosing Luxury Dentistry.”

What issues can Lumineers correct?
Lumineers can brighten the teeth without the need for harsh bleaching chemicals. They can be used to provide the appearance of better tooth alignment. Lumineers are very effective in covering chips and cracks in the teeth. By consulting a skilled and experienced dental practice, like Luxury Dentistry NYC, you can be assured that you’ll enjoy a more beautiful, fresh smile with Lumineers.
How do Lumineers differ from traditional veneers?
Lumineers are thinner and stronger than traditional veneers. Lumineers have a thickness of about 0.3 millimeters, while traditional porcelain veneers tend to be about 0.5 millimeters thick. The Lumineer application process is much less invasive than the process for traditional veneers.
What are the advantages of Lumineers?
Thinness is one of the primary advantages of Lumineers in comparison to traditional veneers. Since Lumineers are so thin, they can be applied to the teeth without extensive and invasive preparation work. Likewise, Lumineers can be applied on top of existing veneers without the need to file away the underlying, original veneer. When traditional veneers are applied to the teeth, the dentist must first file and trim away at the natural tooth, which will permanently alter the structure of your teeth and can be an uncomfortable process.
