Lumineers in Cincinnati, Ohio

What are Lumineers?

Our Lumineers® in Cincinnati, like porcelain veneers, are thin, tooth-colored shells that can be placed over the front of your teeth to correct many common cosmetic dental problems. However, Lumineers® are actually thinner than some dental veneers, allowing them to restore the appearance of a tooth or teeth with little-to-no removal of natural tooth enamel.


Each set of Lumineers® are custom-manufactured for the individual patient, crafted from a mold of the existing teeth for a perfect fit and appearance. You have the opportunity to see how your new teeth will look when placed on our advanced digital imaging system.

When placing custom porcelain veneers, the teeth are prepared by removing a very thin layer of enamel. While this allows veneers to fit perfectly and look incredibly natural, it is not the appropriate treatment for some patients. Lumineers® could be an alternative that gives you the bright, even smile you envision for yourself.

Stained, Uneven
or Oddly-Shaped
Teeth – Resolved

Your smile can be your greatest asset, personally, socially, and in business. If you feel your teeth are unattractive, you may feel shy about your smile and hold back. Lumineers® can help you resolve many cosmetic issues, including badly stained teeth, uneven teeth, chips and cracks, gaps, or oddly-shaped teeth, restoring them to a very natural look that gives you the confidence to share your smile proudly.

Lumineers FAQ's

What is the difference between lumineers and veneers?

Lumineers is a trademarked brand name for porcelain veneers. They are the company who makes them in their own high production lab. Think of it like Kleenex and tissues. If you want the Lumineers brand, you are required to use their lab. The labs we use at Hardin Advanced Dentistry are less focused on volume and more on quality. The lab technicians are highly trained, world renowned, and make much more esthetic, natural veneers.

Do Lumineers look fake?

That would depend on who you ask. If you’re looking for a monochromatic all white look with no subtleties of natural looking teeth (think Steve Harvey), then Lumineers might be for you. If you want a life-like result with natural color, great morphology, texture, and translucency, then porcelain veneers made from one of the many labs we use will be better suited for you.

Do Lumineers fall off?

No, Lumineers and porcelain veneers are bonded onto the tooth. They shouldn’t ever fall off if proper protocols are followed by a cosmetic dentist who has the necessary training.
