When you are looking for a way to freshen up your smile, veneers are a good choice because they cover discolored or damaged teeth that are otherwise healthy. Getting the right veneers can restore a bright, white smile. While traditional veneers are a significant procedure that requires quite a bit of work to prepare and apply to your teeth, Lumineers is a brand of veneers that provides a similar look with some advantages over traditional veneers.
Benefits of Lumineers
Lumineers, like any other veneers, are a cosmetic coating that dentists apply to your natural teeth to improve the look of your smile. They are often used to cover flaws such as discolored teeth, minor chips or other damage. They are a popular choice for cosmetic improvements to your smile because they offer:
- A non-porous surface that makes them resistant to staining and maintains that bright, glossy look for many years
- A thinner design and simpler application that requires little prep work, so it is much faster and easier than traditional veneers
- The ability to cover up yellowing, discolored, broken or chipped teeth so you cannot see imperfections; however, because Lumineers are thinner than traditional veneers, they may not be an option for severely discolored teeth
- A quick fix for small or unusually shaped teeth to create a flawless, uniform look for your smile
- Semi-permanent application that lasts 10 to 20 years, but can be removed later with minimal damage to your teeth if you change your mind; traditional veneers require that a dentist grind down the front of your tooth, so you cannot remove them
Other Factors to Consider
One important thing to understand about Lumineers and veneers is that the procedure is often considered cosmetic, which means most dental insurance plans will not pay for it. Lumineers may be less expensive than traditional veneers, but can still be costly, particularly if you are planning to get them on multiple teeth. They are bonded to your teeth, but bacteria can grow around the edges of the veneer, which means you need to be extra vigilant about oral hygiene to prevent tooth decay.

I am giving Young Family Dental in West Jordan 5 stars because of the wonderful service I received. It began from the moment I walked through the door. The girls at the front desk welcomed me right away and I was almost immediately called back. I was nervous due to it being my first visit and I hate going to the dentist but everyone was very friendly and really put me at ease. They took x-rays which was quick and painless as was the actual dental exam. They answered all my questions and never made me feel like a bother. The whole process took approximately 30 minutes and I was out the door with a smile on my face. THANK YOU! Young Family Dental. I will definitely be returning for any future dental needs!6/25/2021

I’m deeply terrified of going to the dentist and have put off treatment because of my fears. This was my first time at Young Family Dental in West Jordan and they treated me with kindness and concern. Orchid was so helpful in explaining the process and things she was doing during my visit. And Dr Workman took the time to talk with me and ease my fear during my exam. I will definitely come back and refer my friends to this amazing office. Thank you so much for easing my fears and helping me get my dental health back on track!12/04/2020

“These guys are awesome! I had a tooth break on a Friday afternoon and they got me in right away! I’ve since seen 3 different dentists there and have no complaints. The office staff is incredible and friendly. I still am not a huge fan of going to the dentist, but this office has really helped alleviate my fears and dental anxiety. I would recommend them to anyone.”
I’ve known Dr. Chris for over 10 years, and my experience with him has been awesome. I got Invisalign with him to straighten my teeth, and it was incredible to have straight teeth! It was great, too, that I was an adult and I didn’t have to walk around with braces like a teenage weirdo. Chris and YFD are excellent, I highly recommend them.
Anne Marie Gross referred me to your office and has had nothing but great things to say about you! I am looking forward to scheduling an appointment soon!
Deron Gross- when I went to young family dental they treated me very nicely and took great care of me:) appreciate all the work they’ve done:)
I took both my 8 year old and 3 year old daughters there, and it was great experience from beginning to end. It was the first time for my 3 year old (don’t judge me ?) Jacqueline was great at making it a fun experience for her. Jessica helped take care of my 8 year old who had some infection on a tooth she had worked on a while ago. And the dentist was great too. Overall, everyone was friendly, everything was clean, and at the end I had a credit on my account that I didn’t know was there which was an added bonus.
Young Family Dental Riverton employs the latest technology and procedures. The staff is always friendly and make you feel comfortable.
Everything they do is on time and as scheduled. They send you reminders for your appointments. They are great. My entire family goes to Young Family Dental Riverton.
I love young family dental! Their assistants are great and make me feel comfortable which is important to me because I don’t like going to the dentist. The dentists are very informative and make me feel at ease as well. They take extra time and care to make sure you fully understand what is being done and what needs to be done. If you need a check up, a cleaning, or work done stop or call young family in Riverton Utah, they are great!!
I love working here.. The dentists, hygienists, and assistants are awesome!!!
