Lumineers are similar type of porcelain veneer which is used in cosmetic dentistry to correct teeth that are stained, chipped, discolored or even misaligned. Lumineers are unique in that much less of the natural tooth needs to be removed, since Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers. With less tooth removal, the need for dental anesthetic is minimized. Lumineers are always made out of Cerinate porcelain, which is extremely durable. This allows the veneers to be fabricated as thin as .2 to .3 millimeters.
