Porcelain veneers and Lumineers Cerinate

New smile, new you with porcelain veneers or original Lumineers

New smile with minimal preparation

The possibilities of the cosmetic dentistry are almost
endless in our modern days. It does not matter whether your teeth are damaged by caries or otherwise, if they are root canal-treated or just inherently badly grown, with an uneven surface or shape – they are easy to fix with several dental cosmetic procedures. In the past, to cover aethetich teeth problems the only solution was the placement of a crown –  however, the main disavantage of that method was that a large portion of the tooth had to be ground down. Today’s porcelain veneers or lumineers represent a much less invasive and a more aesthetic solution: teeth can be reshaped in a way that no one realises they are actually not natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers or lumineers ensure not only bright white teeth, which you have always wanted. They also offer a solution to a lot of other problems, such as twisted, broken, cracked, or even too short teeth.

FAQ about veneers and lumineers

In which cases are porcelain veneers the right solution? More... ↓

  • In case of discoloured teeth
  • In case of damaged or broken teeth
  • In case of irregularly shaped, distorted teeth
  • In case of a gap between the teeth

Is the placement painful? More... ↓

No, before grinding down, the patient receives a local anesthetic injection.

Which materials are the porcelain veneers made of? More... ↓

Veneers are extremely thin all-ceramic shells, made of pure porcelain (lithium disilicate).  Veneers have an excellent transparency and therefore look like natural teeth.  In addition, the all-ceramic shells are completely free of metals.

How long will porcelain veneers last? More... ↓

The life span of the ceramic shells is 10-15 years, depending on how well ones takes care of them. Since they are made of porcelain, they are extremely durable.

Do porcelain veneers need special care? More... ↓

They need the same good care as natural teeth, since beneath the shell the teeth can get caries in the same way. Good mouth hygiene is especially important: cleaning your teeth twice a day, flossing them and of course a dental check-up twice a year. That is how we avoid development of caries and gingivitis, and the latter is particularly important, because gingivitis can cause receding gums over the years, due to which the outer line of the shells may become visible. In such cases, a replacement may become necessary, although the fixing is not weakened, and there are no damages or cracks.
By cleaning our teeth twice a day thoroughly and using cleansing solutions against dental plaque, we can maintain the shells intact and undamaged for a much longer period.

Harmful habits More... ↓

If one bites his  nails or grinds his teeth, one may damage the veneers. Therefore it is worth getting rid of these bad habits and acquiring a dental night guard for teeth grinding, so the negative consequences of grinding while sleeping can be prevented.

Procedure of porcelain veneersPorcelain veneers

The placement of a so called shell or several shells is generally carried out in two sessions. A consultation and preparation takes place during the first appointment, while in the second session the finished work is placed on the tooth or teeth, since more teeth can be treated at once.

  1. Diagnosis and preparation of the treatment plan: Here the patient and the treating specialist consult about the affected teeth. They discuss the desired and possible shape, the color of the veneers, and what results can be achieved. The dentist examines the current state of the teeth thoroughly and makes an x-ray.
  2. Preparation: The dentist, in order to be able to place a porcelain veneer, must grind down up to half a millimeter tooth substance; this width corresponds to the width of the veneers. Before grinding down, the patient receives an anesthetic injection, thus he feels no discomfort. After the preparation is done, an impression of the teeth is taken and sent to the technical laboratory.
  3. Placement: Before the dentist places the porcelain veneers permanently, he checks the veneers to see whether color and form have become as desired and whether they fit correctly. Immediately before placing, the surface of the tooth is cleaned, polished and etched, which is necessary for the perfect adhesion of the shell. After fixing and polishing the veneers, the patient can smile with his shiny new teeth.

Advantages and disadvantages of porcelain veneers


  • A natural effect can be achieved
  • The gums usually tolerate the veneers well
  • The porcelain veneers do not discolor
  • With porcelain veneers, existing teeth can be lightened
  • The porcelain veneers are nowadays the most suitable solution if you want to change the tooth shape or color – not a lot of tooth substance has to be ground down.


  • The process is final, irreversible
  • Veneers are more expensive than composite fillings
  • The shells cannot be repaired – if damaged or broken, they must be completely replaced

Non-Prep Veneers: Same as Lumineers Cerinate?

Non-prep veneers have the same procedure as the brand Lumineers Cerinate. Non-Prep or Non-Invasive is a method without the preparatory grinding of the teeth, meaning that the tooth structure is not abraded. Only in rare cases, a minimum abrasion is required. The procedure allows aesthetic corrections to be carried out quickly and painlessly. Lumineers Cerinate is custom made in two laboratories in California or Lichtenstein. Non-prep veneers are manufactured in the clinics’ own laboratories and cost as much as normal veneers.

This method is not recommended for all cases, read the article by Dr. Turcsányi about non-prep veneers.
