What makes LUMINEERS® Porcelain Veneers different from other veneers?
LUMINEERS ® BY CERINATE ® are porcelain veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Dr. Walls can apply these contact lens-thin "smile shapers" to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.
LUMINEERS are contact lens-thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.) LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.
LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. In just 2-3 visits to Golden Hills Family Dental, you can have a custom-made smile that is clinically proven to last over 20 years - and it is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact! Get your perfect smile today!
LUMINEERS BY CERINATE Technique
TRADITIONAL VENEERS Technique
Teeth are stained, slightly misshapen with spaces in-between. An impression is made and the mold is sent to the Cerinate Smile Design Studios where only LUMINEERS are crafted.
Teeth appear stained and slightly misshapen. An impression is made and sent to a lab.
LUMINEERS VENEERS NO PAINFUL TOOTH PREPARATION
On next dental visit, the dentist tries in LUMINEERS to ensure a good fit. Teeth are moderately etched to prepare for placement but there is no removal of sensitive tooth structure, unlike the painful part of traditional veneer techniques. The LUMINEERS are bonded to natural teeth and set in place with a curing light.
TRADITIONAL VENEER TOOTH PREPARATION
Anesthetic shots are given to numb the area and teeth are severely shaved away with a drill to accommodate the veneers.
In only 2 easy dental visits, your patient will have a permanently whiter and beautiful smile without shots, drilling, or pain.
POTENTIALLY PAINFUL AFTER
A better, but still flawed smile, as the procedure is not reversible like LUMINEERS because the original teeth have been shaved down causing your patient pain and discomfort immediately after the procedure.

Stained, Discolored Teeth
Stained or discolored teeth can be a major embarrassment because no amount of bleaching, brushing or visits to the dentist will remove the stains. Now there?s a hassle-free solution to the problem. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE, which are like thin covers for your teeth, eliminate the traces of any stains or discoloration. Best of all, a LUMINEERS procedure leaves you with permanent whitening.
"Without any pain my teeth were straightened, whitened and my smile came to life. I kept waiting for it to hurt, but it never did. I smile all the time now"
Do you have a chip on one of your teeth, like right in the front where everyone can see? Bet it bothers you big time. While bonding may offer a temporary fix, it may not be the most reliable way to ensure an attractive smile for the long run. LUMINEERS offers a painless, permanent and pleasant way to fix your chipped tooth for good. You?ll always smile with confidence.
Dentist said, "After seeing what LUMINEERS have done for my patients, I knew it was something I needed to do for myself."

"The greatest advantage, in most cases, is that a Cerinate smile can be created in only two dental visits," states Dr. S. "The color match was perfect and there was no pain during or after the placement." -- Dr. Jeff Siebert, Lewisville, Texas
Crooked and crowded teeth are a common problem. You've probably been thinking for years now the only solution is orthodontics. No longer the case. Lumineers can eliminate the need for braces by the placement of this ultra-thin Cerinate porcelain, which permanently covers and corrects misaligned teeth.
"The procedure was amazingly simple and fast. The doctor told me there would be no pain, which turned out to be true. In fact, it was a really pleasant experience. There were no shots and no pain. Although he did shave a little off one of my teeth to straighten it, the result looks really natural. I don't look like I have had dental work, I just look like I have really great genes."
Pointy teeth can really detract from your appearance. You've probably been reluctant to have a traditional veneer procedure for fear that your teeth will be ground down. No way with LUMINEERS. A contact lens-thin LUMINEERS is simply placed over your original tooth without the need for the removal of any sensitive tooth structure.
"I am now a walking example of a beautiful Cerinate smile. Everytime I visit my son, his dental student friends want another look. And, best of all, my son was able to view the entire procedure."
Good to Beautiful
Your smile may look pretty good, but you want even better. You want your favorite celeb's smile. A LUMINEERS dentist will evaluate your smile and desires and will help you achieve the look you want with no pain, shots, drilling or removal of sensitive tooth structure.
The patient's statement reveals why she selected Cerinate for her smile makeover.
I was tired of my bonding chipping, leaving spaces between my teeth. After seeing several other Cerinate cases, I wanted a smile just like theirs--with no pain. Cerinate was the right choice. A new smile in only 40 minutes!" -- K.F.
I Don't Want Braces
Despite the fact that braces are readily available for adults, most of us don't want to endure the pain and suffering. And frankly, it is quite an embarrassing ordeal dragged out for as much as 2 years. Now you can have a completely corrected smile in just 2 short visits to your dentist with LUMINEERS BY CERINATE. A LUMINEERS procedure is the ideal alternative to orthodontics.
"From an early age I had an extremely large gap between my teeth. I have been through braces twice and wore retainers for many years. A couple months ago I had LUMINEERS placed on my front teeth and guess what...I had an instant, beautiful smile! I was amazed with the results and to top it off, the procedure only took about 40 minutes. It now feels good to smile and have perfect teeth without the maintenance of a retainer or braces!"
Staining and discoloration are problems for many. Whether the damage has been caused by time, stain-producing substances such as coffee and red wine, or by the administration of tetracycline, the polychromatic and natural looking character of LUMINEERS corrects discoloration without appearing artificial and provides a permanent whitening solution for those who hide their smile.
"I was embarrassed to smile. Now I smile all the time."
Renewing Old Dental Work
No matter your age, sometimes it can just take a few years for crowns and bridgework to add many years to your face. LUMINEERS porcelain can easily be placed on top of crowns and bridgework, with absolutely no pain, drilling or sensitive tooth structure removal. Don't even think about replacing your less-than-perfect crowns or bridgework. LUMINEERS them!
"After several unpleasant and painful experiences with the dentist, I was fearful of any dental work, and in fact, had not been to a dentist's office in almost 10 years. After watching another patient being fitted with LUMINEERS BY CERINATE, I decided to have my own set. With no shots or drilling, I now have a perfect smile for years to come. My only regret is that I did not have this done sooner." - K.U.
