Dental Lumineers are of such thinness they are often referred to as dental shells. Dental Lumineers are perfect in the case of wanting a smile makeover that requires a subtle amendments to your natural teeth in terms of shape and overall smile design. Dental Lumineers are about as thin as a contact lens and as such they require no preparation to your natural teeth. We source our dental cement from across the globe ensuing that the strongest bond is created between your tooth and the Lumineer. If you are happy with your overall smile design and you are planning minor amendments or a much whiter colour such as Hollywood white, Lumineers are the perfect form of Cosmetic Dentistry to achieve the result you are planning for. If you have teeth that protrude, are recessed, overcrowded or present excessive gaps or damage then the corrective amendment needed will defeat the capability of a Lumineer and another form of Cosmetic Dentistry such as a Dental Veneers or Dental Crowns should be advised. You may wonder how a thin shell of porcelain can successfully withstand all of the wear and tear that it will be exposed to. Although Lumineers are exceptionally thin, when they are firmly bonded to and supported by your tooth, it creates a very strong and durable surface. With modern dentistry, Lumineers are able to provide you with an instant natural or Hollywood smile in just a few easy visits. Dental Centre Turkey recommends E.max© Lumineers which are produced in the clinic itself using smile design technology.
More information about E.max© Lumineers is below.
E.MAX© Lumineers (Premium Selection)
E.max© Lumineers are a type of all-ceramic Veneer with an appealing translucent colour, which is combined with extra strength and durability. This Lumineer is made from a single block of lithium ceramic: this is a top grade material, which has been harvested for its toughness and durability. E.max© has a highly attractive appearance ensuring they compliment the rest of your teeth and which makes it a highly prized Lumineer. It is a glass ceramic Lumineer which is tough and enduring but delicate in appearance. The advantages of an E.max© Lumineer are that it is considered to be the best match with your own natural teeth. E.max© is one of the strongest dental materials, therefore it is long lasting and unlikely to crack or fracture when compared too many other types of Lumineers. E.max© Lumineers are crafted from a pure ceramic block, which are available in every shade including Hollywood white. If you require a single E.max© Lumineer to restore a single tooth, our dental Technicians can also apply shading so your new Lumineer is in keeping with your surrounding teeth. In these cases it is impossible to spot which is the Lumineer and which is your natural teeth.
E.max© Lumineers are made with CAD CAM Technology (Premium Selection) in our own dental clinic.
Following your consultation, we prepare your new smile design on the CAD CAM Computer System and you have an opportunity to review the design and request changes according to your preference of tooth or smile shape. You can bring a reference photograph or picture of a smile that you like and we will copy the design. If you are unsure on which design is most suitable for you, our Cosmetic Dentists and Technicians have a wealth of experience and will create a bespoke design that suits your mouth and face shape. Once you are happy with the tooth/ smile design our Technicians then get to work, crafting your E.max© Lumineers.
We have the E.max© Porcelain blocks in our own clinic therefore we do not have to cover the cost of outside laboratory fees. At Dental Centre Turkey we have our own, on-site, dental ceramic studio fully equipped with all the relevant technology enabling us to create your Crowns in our own clinic using computer aided software and a CAD CAM machine that mills the Crowns. Having this dedicated studio means that we are able to fabricate Lumineers using the E.max© materials and technologies to an exemplary standard and without the need for an outside laboratory to complete any aspect of the procedure, saving you time and money. If you only need a few Lumineers they can be completed in a single day.
We offer E.max© Lumineers as one of our premium selections. You will see high prices in your home country due to the reputation of the brand name and CAD CAM technology required. Dental Centre Turkey feel that premium dentistry brands such as E.max© should be available and affordable for every patient. With this in mind you will see that our price for E.max© Lumineers is more than competitive and quality is never compromised.
The glass ceramic blocks themselves appear light purple in colour while they are in their softer form required for the CAD CAM machine to mill the Lumineer shape. During the final phase when the cut E.max© Lumineer is fired in the porcelain oven the purple colour changes to the appropriate white colour shade as the density of the material increases.
The advantage of E.max© Lumineers is that you only need a few dental appointments and the end result is a bespoke design approved by you before the Lumineers are crafted.

Dental Centre Turkey was established in 2005, that’s over 11 years of experience and 11 years of offering a legitimate guarantee. There are many cowboy clinics in the industry both at home and abroad that have been in business for 5 minutes and make huge claims which are nothing more than invented poppycock! Over the years we have obtained hundreds of real patient video testimonials as well as many written reviews on social media and hundreds of patient before and after examples. It takes time and effort to generate such statistics, for example: we only ask 2% of our patients for a video testimonial. We have done so to provide each new potential patient with transparent information so you can make an informed decision about the right clinic to provide your treatment. In recent years, we have been trusted to recreate the smiles of some well-known TV personalities which is a great addition to our expanding portfolio. Over 30% of the patients that visit us today are from a referral from a previous patient which is a statistic we are very proud of and strive to maintain.
Lumineers are extremely thin (approximately 0.2mm). They are fine shells of porcelain that require no tooth preparation.

In short, No! Teeth Whitening products do not work on any form of Cosmetic Dentistry and any websites selling whitening products that tell you they do are telling porky pies. It will take many years for your Lumineers to discolour. Smoking is the main cause of discolouration however it will still take many years for the shade to darken if you maintain good oral hygiene.
We have over 30 tooth colours available as per the vita colour shade chart which is a universal tooth shading system. The whitest shade available is Hollywood White also known as BL1 (the whitest shade available in the world). We have all shade available ranging from Hollywood white to natural white to yellow and even brown. Hollywood White and Natural White are the most popular choices in the case of a Smile Makeover or a Dental Facelift. If you are planning Cosmetic Dentistry for a single tooth or only a few teeth we will match the colour of your new Laminate Veneers to the colour of your surrounding teeth. If you would like an overall brighter, whiter smile we can also apply Professional Teeth Whitening with laser to your surrounding teeth before your colour selection. Some of our patients like the fake look similar to Katie Price or Simon Cowell whilst other patients prefer a natural finish. In all cases, all options are discussed in detail during your consultation and the end decision is yours as to which colour you prefer. Eye, skin and hair colour should all be considered when choosing the most appropriate shade depending on the end result you would like to achieve. If we need to match a single Lumineer or a few Lumineers to your surrounding teeth our Dental Technicians can also apply detailed tooth shading ensuring the colour is ever so slightly graduated down the tooth with a slightly darker colour along the gum line, similar to that of a natural tooth. Examples of various tooth colours can also be provided upon request.

Many patients planning Cosmetic Dentistry consider travelling abroad for their Lumineers due to the cost savings but the skills and expertise also should not be ignored.
