Lumineers can be used to fix cosmetic dental imperfections like stains, discolorations and chipped or misaligned teeth.

Lumineers Side Effects

Because the tooth enamel is not reshaped to make space for the tooth covering, as is done with other veneers, Lumineers have a tendency to make your teeth look noticeably bigger. This may be an aesthetic issue if your teeth are already large.

Who shouldn't use it: Lumineers will not help unhealthy or decaying teeth. Lumineers are also a poor choice for people prone to grinding their teeth, as this will cause the thin porcelain to wear off.

Drawbacks: Lumineers are very expensive. And since teeth are not reshaped before application, Lumineers can cause teeth to look larger.

Recovery Time For Lumineers

There is no lingering pain or downtime.

After care for Lumineers: Lumineers come with a five year warranty, so if any problems do arise, return to your dentist. Continue to brush, floss, and visit your dentist as you would otherwise. Because all veneers can potentially trap bacteria and irritate gums, schedule three professional dental cleanings a year.
