Lumineers Chula Vista


If you’re looking for a way to brighten your teeth without the time and preparation associated with traditional veneers, then Lumineers might be just the option for you. Many dentists offer traditional veneers, but only some are licensed providers of Lumineers. We at The Center for Beautiful Smiles are proud to offer this revolutionary method of straightening your teeth and brightening your smile.

What are Lumineers used for?

Lumineers are a revolutionary way to transform your smile. Similar to veneers in their beauty but with none of the lengthy preparation and grinding away of tooth structure, Lumineers are custom-designed to fit over your existing teeth or dental work.

The patented porcelain Cerinate is ultra thin, highly translucent, and perfectly color-matched to your face for a completely natural look that can transform your appearance. Stained, chipped, crooked and misshapen teeth can be stunningly corrected in just 2 painless appointments.

No shots, no drilling or grinding! Because the procedure leaves the tooth intact you retain the integrity of your dental structure.

Lumineers can fix a wide variety of aesthetic issues, including:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

They can even serve as a substitute for braces! Getting braces is a complex procedure, and adults especially may not want to go through the time and trouble. Lumineers can straighten your teeth without all that hassle.


What is the difference between Lumineers and traditional veneers?

Traditional veneers are a great way to improve your teeth’s appearance, but they do come with some downsides. Some of your teeth’s enamel must be removed to install veneers, a procedure that is irreversible. In contrast, Lumineers are ultra-thin, about the same width as a contact lens, so they most of the time do not require any enamel removal. Lumineers are much easier to install, with no need for anesthesia or wearing acrylic temporaries. And unlike veneers, which are permanently bonded to your teeth, Lumineers can be removed with just one dental visit. However, Dr. Pham does not recommend to remove them unless it is patient’s wish to do so for other dental esthetic solutions or concerns. Since your original teeth are still intact, Lumineers are completely reversible.

What is the procedure for getting Lumineers?

The Lumineer process takes only two simple appointments:

  • After an initial consultation, the first appointment involves taking an impression of your teeth. The resulting mold is sent to the Lumineers laboratory so your appliances can be custom-built. At this stage, traditional veneers usually require drilling and reshaping of your teeth, but Lumineers eliminate this time-consuming step.
  • The Lumineers take two to three weeks to manufacture. On your second appointment, after you have tried them on to ensure the best fit, they are bonded in place. Your dentist will carefully check your bite to confirm that the Lumineers will not chip or crack due to the normal action of your teeth.


Depending on your oral health habits, your new Lumineers will last over ten years. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of this life-altering cosmetic enhancement.
