Why A&M Dental Arts Recommends Lumineers


At A&M Dental Arts, we prioritize your long-term dental health, which is why we offer Lumineers as a premium cosmetic dentistry solution. Unlike conventional veneers, Lumineers are ultra-thin, comparable to the thickness of a contact lens, allowing for seamless application over your natural teeth. 


Because of their thinness, minimal to no tooth reduction is necessary during treatment, distinguishing Lumineers from traditional veneers, which often require significant enamel removal for proper placement. This innovative design not only minimizes invasiveness but also expedites the treatment process. 


In most cases, Lumineers can be applied in just two visits, offering a convenient and efficient solution for achieving a radiant smile. Whether you reside in Manalapan, Newark, Jersey City, or the surrounding areas, we invite you to experience the transformative benefits of Lumineers at A&M Dental Arts.


Lumineers Solve a Variety of Dental Problems


Here are just a few of the problems that Lumineers can address to improve your smile:


  • Brighten stained and discolored teeth
  • Restore the shape of chipped teeth
  • Eliminate spacing and gaps
  • Correct minor alignment issues with crooked teeth
  • Reshape small or misshapen teeth
  • Renew old dental work
  • Perfect your Hollywood smile


Advantages of Lumineers over Veneers


Lumineers offer several advantages over traditional veneers, making them a popular choice for enhancing smiles in Manalapan:


  • Minimal Tooth Preparation: Unlike veneers, which require the removal of a significant amount of enamel, Lumineers are ultra-thin and often require little to no tooth preparation. This means that the natural structure of your teeth can be preserved, making this a more conservative option.
  • No Need for Anesthesia: Since Lumineers typically require minimal tooth preparation, the procedure can often be performed without the need for anesthesia. This reduces discomfort during and after the treatment, making the process more comfortable for patients.
  • Reversible Option: Unlike veneers, which involve irreversible changes to the tooth structure, Lumineers are reversible. If desired, they can be removed by the cosmetic dentist, and the natural teeth restored to their original state.
  • Natural Appearance: they are made from high-quality porcelain that mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. They are translucent and reflect light just like natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile.
  • Durable and Long-lasting: Despite their ultra-thin design, Lumineers are durable and can last for many years with proper care. They are resistant to staining and discoloration, allowing patients to enjoy a bright and beautiful smile for years to come.


The main downside of Lumineers is that they may appear bulkier than veneers, but that is because they don’t require the removal of enamel in order to place them. That bulk is a consequence of making this treatment option reversible. For this reason, Manalapan patients with unusually small teeth may benefit the most from this treatment.


How to Take Care of Your Lumineers


Taking care of your Lumineers is essential to ensure their longevity and maintain a healthy smile. Here are some tips for caring for your Lumineers:


  • Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to remove plaque and food particles that can accumulate around your Lumineers and natural teeth.
  • Avoid Staining Foods and Drinks: While the material is resistant to staining, it’s still essential to avoid excessive consumption of foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries.
  • Wear a Mouthguard: If you participate in contact sports or grind your teeth at night, wearing a mouthguard can help protect your Lumineers from damage.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups: Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings to ensure that your Lumineers and overall oral health are in good condition.
  • Avoid Using Your Teeth as Tools: Refrain from using your teeth to open packages or bite on hard objects, as this can chip or damage your Lumineers.


Lumineers as Part of a Smile Makeover


Lumineers can be a transformative component of a smile makeover from your Manalapan cosmetic dentist, helping to address various cosmetic concerns and create a beautiful, harmonious smile. Whether you’re looking to correct discoloration, close gaps, or improve the shape and size of your teeth, Lumineers offer a versatile solution that can enhance your smile’s appearance and boost your confidence.
