Get a Natural-Looking Smile Makeover with Non-Invasive Cerinate Lumineers

Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS – Manhattan New York City Cosmetic Dentist

When it’s time to upgrade the appearance and functionality of your teeth, there is one particular option to put at the top of the list: Cerinate Lumineers. As a cosmetic dentistry treatment, Lumineers provide that coveted natural-looking smile makeover you want, while the procedure itself is gentle and minimally invasive.


What’s the difference between Lumineers and porcelain veneers?

There are many similarities between Cerinate Lumineers and porcelain veneers. Both are excellent options for creating a customized smile makeover. Lumineers, however, have grown in popularity the more patients get to know about this gentle alternative to porcelain veneers.

Lumineers and veneers run parallel to each other as far as the smile makeover benefits that they offer. Both ultimately create a straight, white, flawless smile. Both are made of contact-lens-thin porcelain shields that are permanently bonded to the front of each of your natural teeth. Both are customized to straighten, whiten, lengthen, and shape your teeth.

The difference comes with the preparation of your natural teeth for the application of Lumineers. In the veneer process, natural teeth must be shaved down so the porcelain shells fit snugly and properly. Handcrafted Lumineers are so very thin – even thinner than veneers – that your teeth only need to be lightly sanded in preparation for the procedure.

What problems do Cerinate Lumineers correct?

What many patients may not realize is the incredible versatility of Cerinate Lumineers. While you may be considering a whitening treatment, alignment method, or cosmetic bonding, Lumineers can correct a host of oral health complaints simultaneously.

If your teeth are stained, broken, chipped, gapped, misshapen, short, crooked, crowded, or uneven, Lumineers can be the ultimate solution. Imagine being able to get a brand new smile after just a few visits to your Manhattan cosmetic dentist. You don’t need to return time after time after time to have multiple procedures completed. Your smile makeover can truly be one and done with Cerinate Lumineers.

What other benefits do Lumineers offer besides a smile makeover?

If you’re still trying to convince yourself that Lumineers are worth the investment, there are plenty of other reasons to believe in the worthiness of this cosmetic dentistry procedure, which, if taken care of, could last for decades.

When your smile is improved, you automatically feel like a better, newer version of yourself. Your smile is the focal point of your face, and when people see just how confident you are about your appearance, they will view you differently – more positively. You will have self-confidence in who you are and how you look to others. Your professional, social, and personal interactions will be that much better because your self-esteem will get a boost from your stunning new smile.

The functionality of your smile will also be improved by the application of Lumineers. You’ll be able to bite and chew better, which will improve your digestion. You will be able to speak better too, which will make you sound more learned and articulate.

How do I know if Lumineers are right for me?

Ultimately, your Manhattan cosmetic dentist will present several options to you for your smile makeover. The decision will mostly likely come down to three main elements: what condition your teeth are in now, your budget, and your willingness to undergo the veneer or Lumineer procedure.

It’s important for you to ask and all questions you have and make sure they are answered so that you feel completely comfortable with the smile makeover in which you are investing. Your oral health is incredibly important, and while it’s nice for your teeth to look good, you want them to work well too. A talented New York City dentist is prepared to deliver both variables without compromise.

Keep in mind your personal preferences too. Remember that Lumineers are minimally invasive. For sensitive patients who have always wanted a veneer-like smile makeover without the veneer preparation, Lumineers are a gift.

Your smile makeover will be customized to blend with your appearance, face shape, skin tone, and the color of your natural teeth. The Cerinate Lumineers will have the translucency of natural teeth so that they don’t look like cosmetic dental enhancements. Above all, your smile will be uniquely yours, made to suit you and only you.
