Lumineers porcelain veneers are made from Cerinate Porcelain, a patented, ultra-strong porcelain manufactured exclusively in Santa Maria, California. Cerinate Porcelain is feldspathic porcelain reinforced with leucite crystals. The particular uniformity of the leucite crystals in Cerinate Porcelain helps it to resist cracking.
The high strength of Cerinate allows LUMINEERS to be made contact lens-thin, without increased risk of breakage, so you can place veneers without the need for anesthetic, extensive prepping, or temporaries. Cerinate Porcelain has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, helping to prevent debonding or pop-offs, and can be either stacked or pressed.
