Veneers & Lumineers®

The greatest breakthrough in the history of dentistry.

LUMINEERS®—Porcelain veneers that do not require the removal of painful tooth structure.

LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE® is a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework.

LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and placed over existing teeth without requiring painful removal of sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.)

LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate® porcelain. This revolutionary porcelain is crafted through a proprietary process unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studios owned by Den-Mat® Corporation. In just two or three visits to the dentist, LUMINEERS provides a custom-made smile clinically proven to last over 20 years.

New LUMINEERS technology makes painful veneers unnecessary.

LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE® is painless because they don’t require painful removal of sensitive tooth structure. Dentists apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming misshapen, worn teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. LUMINEERS can even be placed on porcelain bridgework and crowns with the new Revitalize™ Kit available
to your dentist. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is the best of both worlds—ultra-thin, yet super strong for a radiant smile that resists any cracking, which can damage restorations.

LUMINEERS are completely reversible. Get your perfect smile today!

Lumineers® vs Traditional Veneers - A Comparison.


LUMINEERS Technique TRADITIONAL VENEERS Technique
LUMINEERS Before
BEFORE BEFORE
Teeth are stained, slightly misshapen with spaces in-between. The dentist makes an impression and the mold is sent to the Cerinate Smile Design Studio where only LUMINEERS are crafted. Teeth appear stained and slightly misshapen. An impression is made and sent to a lab.
LUMINEERS VENEERS
NO PAINFUL TOOTH REDUCTION
TRADITIONAL VENEERS
PAINFUL TOOTH REDUCTION

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 no 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 curing light. Anesthetic shots are given to numb the area and teeth are severely shaved away with a drill to accommodate the veneers.
PAINFREE AFTER LUMINEERS POTENTIALLY PAINFUL AFTER
Painfree LUMINEERS LUMINEERS After
In only 2 easy dental visits, you will have a permanently whiter and beautiful smile without shots, drilling or pain thanks to LUMINEERS. 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.

Moved to Santa Monica over five years ago and I've been going to the same dentist in San Diego for over a decade. Finally couldn't do the commute anymore and had to find a local dentist. My wife found Dr. Palmer and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Palmer and her staff are always welcoming and make you feel very comfortable. For a dentist office the vibe is somewhat relaxing and thats saying something. Definitely recommend her. And you can netflix while you're getting your teeth cleaned so what more could you ask for.

Dr. Palmer is great! She gives you the information you need to know and she has a great bedside manner. I'm a person who hates the dentist and I'm pretty sensitive to mouth pain, but she makes me feel calm and I appreciate that

Great visit. The office is nicely decorated. Staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Palmer was knowledgeable, gentle and explained my dental needs. There was a nice view from the dental chair which helped me relax as I am sometimes anxious at the dental office.

I had a lovely first experience with Dr. Palmer from start to finish. She is so friendly and approachable; she finds a way to be relatable to anyone she is taking care of. I went in for a simple cleaning and exam, but will be returning in a few weeks for a small follow-up procedure. I've been very fortunate to have few dental issues in my lifetime, but Dr. Palmer clearly explained everything to me, including advice about how to improve my dental well being moving forward. The facility was very comfortable and chic and the staff friendly and helpful as well. I would strongly recommend this practice! Looking forward coming back here year after year. Update: I went back a week later for my fillings appt. I was in and out of the office within an hour, and she worked on 3 fillings while I watched TV and listen to music the whole time. I am very thankful to have found Dr. Palmer and her team at Meridien Dental.
