Lumineers An Overview
Lumineers are a minimal-prep dental veneer that can treat a range of cosmetic dental concerns. Lumineers are a popular type of porcelain veneer that does not require shaving of the teeth and can be placed over a crown or bridgework. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Byron Desbordes may recommend Lumineers for patients who have stable oral health but want to address their cosmetic dental issues. Lumineers are a temporary treatment that will not damage the natural tooth. Lumineers cover the front and sides of the tooth for a durable and natural result.
Lumineers for Cosmetic Dental Concerns
Lumineers can address several cosmetic dental concerns. Ultra-thin porcelain veneers like Lumineers can be a great solution for patients with inclining teeth, chipped or cracked teeth or for those who need enamel build-up. Dr. Desbordes may also recommend Lumineers for patients who want to straighten the appearance of minor orthodontic concerns. For patients with tooth discoloration caused by medication or trauma, Lumineers provide a way to cover the stain.
- Minor orthodontic concerns
- Discoloration that is resistant to teeth whitening
- Minor chips or cracks
- Increase enamel
- Inclining teeth

Lumineers What to Expect
Dr. Desbordes can install your custom-made set of Lumineers in just 2-3 visits to our Woodlawn, MD dentist office. Lumineers can last over 20 years if properly taken care of with diligent oral hygiene and biannual dental checkups. Lumineers provide natural looking and comfortable results.
Dr. Desbordes collaborates with local dental labs that create custom designed very thin, natural-looking porcelain veneers. Once fabricated, your Lumineers will be bonded to your natural teeth. The Lumineers are made of high-quality porcelain that will reflect light and look like your natural teeth. Lumineers can cover one tooth, or several teeth depending on your cosmetic concerns. Once bonded to your tooth, the veneer will blend seamlessly with your natural smile for beautiful aesthetic results.
Lumineers are ideal for patients with a stable oral health foundation. No-prep veneers can help patients achieve their cosmetic goals by covering stains, cracks or chips that do not compromise the stability of the smile. For the right patients, no-prep or minimal-prep veneers offer beautiful and durable results. With Dr. Desbordes 20 years of dental experience, he offers patients the skill and knowledge to provide natural looking teeth. A thorough oral health exam will help determine if you are the right candidate for Lumineers.
