It's true that because most veneer procedures require a substantial amount of tooth structure removal, that there is pain and discomfort involved. LUMINEERS® is completely different because there is no need for grinding, cutting or filing of teeth in almost all cases. Consequently, no anesthetic or numbing shots are needed. Plus, no uncomfortable temporaries are required while you wait for your LUMINEERS® to be created. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post-placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means they will look natural and feel comfortable from the start.
