Veneers Vs lumineers

Veneers vs Lumineers ..👌

Veneers are thin custom-made porcelain shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve the appearance of the teeth. These are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size and length. Although they offer you a great smile and all the famous Hollywood stars have them, I personally do not recommend them for “esthetic reasons only”, especially to teenagers or young adults. (unless they already have a destructed front side of the tooth/ proximal to the vestibular cavity,ect…). Veneers require some removal and reshaping of the original tooth (or teeth) to create a natural appearance that isn’t bulky or overly large (because the veneer is 1-2 mm thick), therefore the dentist will remove about 2mm from the tooth’s surface. Enamel is removed, leaving the tooth unprotected until the veneer is applied. So if the veneer needs to be removed in the future, the tooth will be unprotected once more, until new veneers are applied. On long term, this permanent removal of enamel can be concerning especially because the lifespan of veneers is about 10 years, and then they need to be changed and are quite expensive, ranging from 500-1,900$/tooth
What i would recommend instead? Lumineers! They provide the SAME function as porcelain veneers, but they are not as invasive. The original tooth is left UNCHANGED and the enamel is not damaged. To achieve this, Lumineers are much thinner than veneers (they’re about as thick as a contact lens = 0.2-0.3mm) but they’re still strong and durable. However, if the patient decides to remove them, their teeth would look the same as they were initially. Lumineers range from 800-2.000$/tooth. They are more expensive but in time if they need to be replaced, they can be postponed because the teeth would still look normal ..§
