Lumineers are prepared individually for each patient, as number of teeth exposed during a smile is different for each patient and each patient has different teeth defects.

If the patient wants to change the shape or shade of only one tooth, Lumineers can easily cope with this task.

Porcelain plates are visually indistinguishable from tooth enamel, so adjusted tooth will look quite natural.

If the defect is present on only one unit, there is no need to install the plates on the entire dentition, it only requires the Lumineers to be put on problematic tooth.
