Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers that require minimal to no reduction of the patient's natural tooth which preserves the natural tooth structure. The procedure begins with taking detailed a dental impression of the patient's teeth. Next, molds to be used in the development of the lumineers are created. The specifications are sent to a laboratory where the lumineers will be crafted from medical-grade porcelain. Once they're ready, a special etching solution is applied over the teeth to ensure a strong bond before bonding the lumineers in place with dental cement.
