Cerinate Lumineers FAQ by Philadelphia dentistry

The gentle alternative to porcelain veneers and braces

If you dream of having a perfect smile, but the thought of having porcelain veneers applied to your teeth makes you wince in pain, you’ll be happy to know there is a new pain-free alternative to porcelain veneers that help you get a fantastic, natural-looking smile. If you are seeking straight teeth without braces, Lumineers by Cerinate may be your solution! Dr. Cirka was one of the first dentists in Philadelphia to provide Lumineers and has placed more beautiful porcelain veneers than any dentist in the Philadelphia area.

The new Lumineers by Cerinate can lengthen small teeth, correct misshapen teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, broken teeth and teeth that have been permanently stained with antibiotics or age. They are extremely thin in comparison to traditional veneers but are even stronger. A Cerinate Lumineer is a contact-lens-thin porcelain shield that is permanently attached to the front of each tooth that is:

  1. Safe for sensitive patients because it does not require grinding down large amounts of sensitive tooth structure
  2. Guaranteed for 5 years against chipping, separating from the tooth, and breakage, but likely will last 20 years or more.

Cerinate Lumineers: The Gentle Alternative To Porcelain Veneers

Typically, traditional veneers require shaving and grinding down the teeth so that they fit properly. With the technology of these ultra-thin veneers, there is no need to grind down your teeth! This means little drilling and no needles!

Clinically proven to last up to 25 years with no shade discoloration, Lumineers can be placed over old crowns or help rejuvenate bridgework to create a more uniform look to your smile.
