Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers & Lumineers
What Is the Difference Between Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers?
Lumineers are a specific brand of semi-permanent veneer that is potentially less expensive than standard veneers as they don’t always last as long as traditional veneers. Lumineers also don’t require any preparation (no shaving down the teeth). However, not everyone is a candidate for Lumineers.
On the other hand, traditional veneers may be a better option if you want to make more drastic alterations. Because every person is different, an individual assessment is required to determine the best type of veneer for you. Our team at Big Smile Dental is known for exceptional cosmetic work and will be happy to help you choose your perfect smile.
Who Are Candidates for Veneers or Lumineers?
Before moving forward with veneers or Lumineers, people must meet specific requirements. Ideal candidates must have good oral hygiene habits and decent periodontal health. Those with significant tooth decay, chronic gum disease, bruxism, or an insufficient amount of tooth enamel must undergo treatment beforehand.
If you’re found to have any of these issues, don’t get discouraged. Big Smile Dental performs examinations and cleanings that improve teeth and gum health, enabling you to get the veneers or Lumineers that will keep your smile beautiful for a lifetime.

Are Veneers Worth It?
Every situation is unique, so whether veneers are worthwhile depends on how you feel about your current situation, how much you’re ready to invest, and how much commitment you’re willing to make to achieve the perfect smile.
Whether you have minor discolorations that make you hesitant to smile or more serious flaws that you want to fix, dental veneers could be just what you need to get your confidence back. And since smiling offers so many benefits, you have every reason to come in for a professional consultation to see if veneers are right for you.
