A Smile Transformation with LUMINEERS BY CERINATE
— Vastardis, P.D.

The advantages of conservative approaches to cosmetic surgery are discussed.  The LUMINEERS concept for porcelain veneers is mentioned as an example of favorable cosmetic procedures.  A clinical case history is presented in which LUMINEERS and Ultra-Bond are used in conjunction with minimal tooth preparation.  

The importance of a good diagnostic workup prior to treatment planning is emphasized.  Digital photography and a matrix to create a mock-up of the planned treatment results are employed as part of the case presentation to the patient.  The case is completed without anesthesia and without temporaries.  The results are a dramatic improvement in the patient’s smile.
