The Magic of Lumineers: A Minimally Invasive Smile Makeover


Rutledge Dental can help transform your smile effortlessly with Lumineers, the ultra-thin veneers that offer a painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Ideal for correcting chips, gaps, or stains, Lumineers provide a beautiful solution without the need for extensive dental work, ensuring a natural look and feel.

About The Procedure

Why Should You Choose Lumineers?

Lumineers are not just cosmetic enhancements; they are a functional upgrade to your dental health. Their translucency and thinness ensure they look natural, closely mimicking the appearance of your enamel, while still being durable enough to resist wear and last for over 20 years. Lumineers are an excellent choice for patients who want to avoid the discomfort and time associated with more invasive procedures. They are especially suitable for those who are apprehensive about dental work since the process is reversible—no permanent alteration of the original tooth structure is necessary with Lumineers.

Understanding the Lumineers Procedure

The process of getting Lumineers typically involves two easy visits to Rutledge Dental. During the first visit, a precision mold is taken, and the right shade for your desired whiter teeth is chosen without any drilling or tooth reduction required, making the procedure unique and minimally invasive. Unlike traditional veneers, there is no need for shots or temporary acrylic covers between visits. On your second visit, your custom-designed Lumineers are checked for fit and shade, then painlessly attached to your teeth, instantly enhancing your smile.

What sets Lumineers apart from traditional veneers?

Lumineers differ from traditional veneers in several key ways. Primarily, they are much thinner—about as thin as a contact lens—making them highly translucent and capable of mimicking the natural appearance of enamel very closely. This ultra-thin design usually eliminates the need for the extensive tooth preparation typically required for standard veneers, such as tooth reshaping or drilling. Consequently, the application process is less invasive, often painless, and in most cases, reversible since the original tooth structure is not permanently altered.

The process for applying Lumineers is straightforward and typically completed in just two visits. During the first visit, an impression of your teeth is taken, which is used to custom-make your Lumineers to fit perfectly. There’s no need for drilling or tooth reduction, and no temporary veneers are required. On your second visit, the Lumineers are bonded directly onto your existing teeth after ensuring they fit flawlessly and match the desired color. The procedure is quick, virtually painless, and provides immediate cosmetic improvements.

The cost of Lumineers can vary depending on several factors, including the number of teeth being treated and the specific requirements of each case. Generally, Lumineers tend to be slightly more expensive than traditional veneers due to their specialized material and the technology involved in their fabrication. Prices may also differ based on geographic location and the expertise of the dental practitioner. For a precise estimate, it’s best to consult with your dentist who can provide a detailed assessment tailored to your individual needs. Keep in mind that many dental offices offer financing options to help manage the cost of the procedure.
