Any dentist can call himself or herself a "cosmetic dentist." But it takes years of specialized training to become a prosthodontist like Dr. Nargiz Schmidt. And that makes all the difference in the caliber of work we're able to do for you. Plus, Dr. Schmidt has taken personal, hands-on training from the original developer of Lumineers, Dr. Robert Ibsen. The fact is, you won't find that sort of expertise at most cosmetic dental offices.

Lumineers by Cerinate Technique
Traditionaly Veneers Technique
Teeth are stained, slightly misshapen with spaces in between. The dentist makes an impression and the mold is sent to Cerinate Smile Design Studio where only Lumineers are crafted.

No Painful Teeth Preparation
On next dental visit, your dentist tries in your Lumineers to ensure a good fit. Teeth are moderately etched to prepare for placement but there is not removal of sensitive tooth structure, the painful part of traditional veneer techniques. The Lumineers are bonded to your natural teeth and set in place with a dental adhesive activated by a curing light.
|Traditional Veneers -
Painful Teeth Preparation
Anesthetic shots are given to numb the area and teeth are severely shaved away with a drill to accommodate the veneers.
In only 2 easy dental visits, you will have a permanently whiter and beautiful smile without shots, drills or pain.
|Potentially Painful After
A better, but still flawed smile, as the procedure is not reversible like Lumineers because the original teeth have been shaved down causing pain and discomfort immediately after the procedure.
