Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured ceramic laminates (fabricated by dental technicians) which are bonded permanently onto the facial area of the teeth. In most cases only a very thin layer of the visible tooth structure has to be prepared. In comparison to a crown restoration almost all tooth hard tissue will be spared.
Dental Veneers allow covering big interdental spaces, correct misalignments or length differences. Even in cases, where bleaching is not sufficient to correct tooth discolouration, it is possible to reach a beautiful light tooth colour by using veneers.
Lumineers are very thin laminates which can be used in cases of minor misalignments, mild aesthetic corrections and moderate tooth discolouration. They can be as thin as contact lenses and are translucent. Therefore, they can improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth that look already moderately appealing. Due to this fact in some cases no preparation of the natural tooth is necessary to bond the lumineers permanently. Digital workflow and cad-cam based fabrication allow a prompt replacement in case of a fracture of a single lumineer. Yet in cases where interior teeth demonstrate multiple fillings, white gaps, trauma or severe discolouration lab-fabricated ceramic veneers are indicated.
