Are Lumineers or porcelain veneers better?
Stacey A. – Little Rock, AR
You’ve asked an interesting question. What many people don’t realize is Lumineers are porcelain veneers. They’re just a specific brand that is more heavily marketed than most. Each brand has its own unique properties. A qualified cosmetic dentist will know which brand will work best with your teeth and the smile you want.
The more important issue is which dentist you choose. There is no recognized specialty in cosmetic dentistry. Any general dentist can call themselves a cosmetic dentist.
However, when you’re talking about your appearance and getting a smile makeover, you want it to be stunning. That takes a significant amount of training and artistry. Training that you can’t get in dental school.
Look for a dentist who is accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. The standard for accreditation is so high that only the top 1-3% of dentists in the world reach that level. It would be worth it to even drive to a nearby city to get an artistic dentist.
