What are Lumineers?
A Lumineer is a special type of ultra-thin veneer, made from Cerinate a special, very strong and
durable patent porcelain material. They are often referred as contact lenses for your teeth, as they
can be only 0.3 mm thick. Lumineers are exclusively made at the Cerinate Smile Design Studio
in the United States.
What sets Dental Clinic Lebanon apart from other practices that provide
Ferrari Dental Clinic is the Exclusive Official Provider for LUMINEERS in Lebanon.
Our privilege of being the Exclusive Official Provider for LUMINEERS in Lebanon is the availability

The Lumineers Procedure:
Lumineers are so thin that they can be adhered to an existing tooth or teeth without the need to
first remove of the tooth's structure (like traditional veneers require). This makes the choice to
select Lumineers a less invasive procedure than other porcelain veneer applications.
The process to apply Lumineers is quick and painless. Only two short visits are required one
to make a precision mold and select the proper shade of color, and then another to adhere the
Lumineers to the teeth.
Lumineers offer beautiful, permanently white teeth whose color will not dull or fade over time and that beauty should last 20 years or more!
With Lumineers you get:
A painless procedure
Permanently white results that last
A quick and easy process
Lumineers vs. Traditional Veneers
Traditional veneers and their thick nature require the grinding down of your original tooth
structure. This can be a painful, anxious experience that many patients would prefer to avoid.
Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.3 mm) and made from special
patented cerinate porcelain that is very strong but much thinner than traditional laboratory-
The main advantage of these ultra-thin veneers is that minimal tooth preparation is required. In
other words, very little - if any - of your natural tooth structure needs to be removed through
shaving or grinding prior to bonding the Lumineers over your natural teeth. They are also highly
translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. Lumineers are so thin
they require little to no tooth reduction and no shots. Once the procedure is completed, there is
no tooth sensitivity or placement discomfort, so they look and feel natural from the moment they are placed.
With Lumineers you can eat and drink anything you want with confidence because
they are applied in the most durable way possible.
Lumineeers offer a quick and easy solution for smile enhancement. Whether your teeth are
badly stained, discolored, crooked, broken, misshapen, or you want to conceal other dental
imperfections like gapes, or renew old crowns and bridge work without removing g them,
Lumineers will help you achieve a beautiful smile!
Can all dentists offer Lumineers?
Not all cosmetic dentists offer Lumineers, as they need to be registered with the company that
manufactures them like our head of department Dr. Habib Zarifeh. Lumineers can only be made
from patented Cerinate porcelain, which is not available anywhere other than in the Cerinate
Smile Design Studio in the States.

alternatives would include porcelain restorations such as Lumineers, Cerec Veneers, or
orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign or Clear Braces to close gaps and straighten crooked
teeth. During your consultation you will be able to discuss all the possible options that are
available to you and the difference between them.
Your smile is one of the first things people always notice about you.

have you started to grin with your mouth closed rather than smile without inhibition?

the enamel of your teeth and return them to the beautiful snowy white before the soda pop, the
