Lumiere is one of the famous types of veneers, but Lumiere is characterized by being made of cerinate material which has sufficient strength and rigidity, which makes it withstand a lot of pressures and changes that occur in the mouth, while at the same time its thickness does not exceed 0.2 or 0.3 mm which helps fix it on the tooth surface without the need to burr it, while on the other hand, the veneer thickness reaches 0.5 mm which requires removing part of the enamel layer covering the teeth.

Lumineer and veneer procedures are very similar, and the only difference stems from the difference in thickness, which requires some additional steps that are not important in other medical conditions. Among the aspects of comparison between them is the cost, which is determined by many factors, not just the procedures, including the professional experience of the treating physician, which makes a difference when applying both the veneer and lumineer, because the lumineer requires high skill and experience due to the accuracy required by its carving procedures.

Advantages of Lumineers Compared to Veneers

Lumineers and veneers both have many positive features and qualities that benefit the patient, and some points can be mentioned that demonstrate the superiority of Lumineer results compared to veneers as follows:

  • Many patients prefer Lumineers over veneers because they do not require removing part of the enamel layer that coats the teeth. This layer gives the teeth the strength and durability to perform their functional tasks, and when cooled it will cause weakening of the teeth and brittleness of their structure, which is what happens with veneers.
  • Lumineer lenses do not cause tooth sensitivity to drinks and foods, which is also attributed to not removing the enamel coating layer, which distinguishes the results it provides compared to veneers that require cooling the teeth, which facilitates the weakening of the teeth and their inability to withstand pressures sometimes and exposure to fracture over time.
  • Lumineer results are more stable compared to veneer results, thanks also to not taking the step of cooling the teeth, which makes the lumineer adhere strongly to the tooth surface and last longer in the patient’s mouth compared to veneers.

Disadvantages of lumineers compared to veneers

There are some disadvantages that appear when comparing lumineers to veneers, which can be clarified in the following points:

  • Lumineers may not give teeth as white as those given by veneers, and this is due to its thin layers that make it dark transparent compared to veneer lenses that are characterized by the ability of their layers to reflect light and make teeth look bright white.
  • Lumineers can increase the size of teeth due to direct adhesion to the tooth surface.
  • Lumineers require a high level of precision and skill from the lab technician who works on their manufacturing or the treating physician who installs them.

Veneers, lumineers and bad breath

Veneer and lumineer lenses are shells that aim only to beautify the teeth and are installed on the tooth surface in order to hide their various deformities. In case they are not fixed on the tooth surface properly, this will lead to gaps between them and the teeth, which provides an opportunity for food accumulation, bacteria growth and infection spread in the mouth, causing unpleasant odor in the mouth. It is also possible that these lenses cause gum inflammation as a result of pressing on them or not installing them properly, which causes friction with them and the appearance of unpleasant odors. Both cause odors for many other reasons, it is possible to consult a doctor as soon as these odors appear in order to identify the health problem and work to solve it with the appropriate treatment for it.
