Can you tell me if lumineers really work?

Can you tell me if lumineers really work?

Yes, if done right: Lumineers depend upon the bond to the tooth to adhere. Contrary to previous marketing they did, tooth structure does need to be removed for the best results.

Can lumineers cover the back side of your front tooth?

Can lumineers cover the back side of your front tooth?

Can but.: Lumineers (simply one marketed brand of porcelain veneers) can be used to cover front or back of teeth, but I have never seen or heard of them used in that manner. If one needed to cover back side, a full porcelain or porcelain\metal crown might be a better choice as the strength of the veneer might be a disadvantage for use in that case. Have a local dentist examine & advise you of best option. ...Read more
