Staining and discoloration are problems for many. Whether the damage has been caused by time, stain-producing substances such as coffee and red wine, or by the administration of tetracycline, the polychromatic and natural looking character of Lumineers correct discoloration without appearing artificial and provides a permanent whitening solution.

The Lumineers process takes only 2 visits to your dentist and the placement of Lumineers on the second visit takes, on average, only about one hour.
On the first visit, Dr. Applegate will create a precise mold. Then you and Dr. Applegate will determine the shade of white that is right for you. After your first visit, Dr. Applegate will send the mold off to Lumineers Smile Design Studio for your custom Lumineers to be created. With Lumineers, you don’t have to wear temporaries. When Dr. Applegate receives your custom Lumineers, they are checked for fit and shade.
On your second visit, your Lumineers are painlessly applied without shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure. And you’re ready to start smiling out loud!
