The difference between veneers and lumineers

The difference between veneers and Lumineers lies in the size of the cover and the thickness of the natural tooth to be removed to make room for the new layer.

The size of the layer which is place on the teeth

The major difference between the two types of veneers is in the thickness of each one. While the Lumineers is no more than 0.5 mm, the thickness of the veneer ranges from 0.52 to 2 mm. The tooth is prepared and shaved according to the thickness of the layer to be placed, ensuring it does not form a size in excess of the normal size of the tooth. Between 0.1 to 0.2 mm of the tooth is shaved when Lumineers are replaced. On the other hand, approximately 1 to 2mm is, is shaved when replacing veneers.

There is a significant difference between veneers and Lumineers. Whereas veneers fit in with many teeth, teeth with dentin hypersensitivity, cracked or broken teeth usually Lumineers are the only suitable option for the patient as they require minimal preparation of the tooth enamel.
