Not All Veneers Are Made the Same. You Deserve the Best, So Accept No Imitations.
Traditional veneers require preparation, anesthetic shots and the placement of temporaries that delay the procedure. Due to the thickness of a traditional veneer, the removal process is more aggressive and can irreversibly damage the healthy tooth structure.
Lumineers are minimally invasive and tend to eliminate the need for anesthetic shots and temporaries, allowing you to look and feel great! Many dentists can offer traditional veneers, however few can offer their patients the Lumineers difference. Dr. Lazarow is a Lumineers certified dentist, meaning he is able to provide you the latest in veneer technology and benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions
How are Lumineers different from traditional veneers?
Lumineers are unique, ultra-thin, and highly translucent, which allows them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. Traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring your original tooth structure to be ground down. Lumineers are so thin (approximately 0.2mm), that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last more than 20 years.
Are there any other Lumineers?
No. Lumineers are exclusive, one-of-a-kind products of the DenMat Lab at DenMat, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.
I think I need braces, but I really don't want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly, and time-intensive process. Can I get Lumineers instead?
In most cases, yes! Dr. Lazarow will be able to evaluate your teeth and devide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, Lumineers will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don’t get with braces.
How long will Lumineers last?
Clinical testing has proven that a Lumineers smile lasts and looks great for more than 20 years.
What is involved with a Lumineers procedure?
On the first visit, Dr. Lazarow will take an impression of your teeth. Then your dentist will work with you to select the shade of white that’s right for you. After your first visit, Dr. Lazarow will send the impression off to the dental lab for your custom Lumineers to be created. Once you're Lumineers arrive at our office, they are checked for fit and shade. During your second visit, your Lumineers are painlessly applied without shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure is completely pain-free. Because they are ultra-thin, in most cases, a perfect fit can be achieved without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post-placement discomfort or sensitivity. Your Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
How long does the procedure take?
The Lumineers process takes, on average, only two visits.
Can I still chew gum and eat my favorite sticky foods?
Yes! Feel free to eat and drink what you like. However, Lumineers don't replace good hygiene, so you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning to keep your Lumineers looking their best and the rest of your teeth and gums healthy.
Can Lumineers be taken off if I want them removed?
In most cases, your natural teeth are still intact and strong.
How long have Lumineers been existed?
Lumineers have been restoring smiles for more than 30 years.
