You may come into our office thinking you want Lumineers. But we are confident that after you meet with Dr. Jenny Miller, you will understand why she prefers other brands of ultra-thin veneers.
Here are some reasons why. DenMat is the corporation that manufactures Lumineers and they market them very heavily. This means a lot of people have heard of them. Although, those advertisements do not communicate how many Lumineers patients are unhappy. Common complaints are that they end up looking fake, chalky, or bulky. These issues can occur because there is no tooth preparation required.
The main reason most expert cosmetic dentists don’t like Lumineers is due to the laboratory restrictions. DenMat requires that Lumineers be manufactured in their own large dental laboratory. This eliminates the use of Dr. Jenny’s in-house ceramist. She has personally seen the work of DenMat’s lab and feels the result is a flat, opaque, and unnatural looking product.
Dr. Miller’s husband, Neil, is the master ceramist at our in-house laboratory. For over 20 years, this arrangement has delivered beautiful results with other brands of ultra-thin porcelain veneers. Dr. Jenny can play an active role in the fabrication process and ensure that your smile design will be created to her exact specifications.
Your Most Beautiful Smile
Even though you may have initially been interested in Lumineers, we encourage you to keep an open mind. As Gold Medal winner of the 2005 AACD International Smile Design Competition, Dr. Jenny knows how to create a beautiful smile.
She is so confident that you will fall in love with her work, she offers a beautiful smile guarantee. You will be given several opportunities to see exactly how your new veneers will look before they are permanently bonded. If you don’t like how something is looking or feeling, your feedback will be incorporated into the final design. Please visit our beautiful smile guarantee page for more information.
Dr. Jenny also feels that to achieve perfect esthetics, a tiny portion of the tooth will need to be shaved. It’s only a fraction of a millimeter, but this important step ensures a seamless transition between the veneer and the natural tooth. No one will be able to tell where the edge of the veneer begins.
If you are ready to start the conversation about a new smile design, we invite you to call the office to schedule a complimentary consultation. During this short, five minute meeting, Dr. Jenny can give you her opinion, let you know if you are a candidate, and show you samples of her work.
