Beautiful Veneers for Bakersfield
Prepless veneers are a thin layer of ceramic-like material that can cover the surface of your teeth. Veneers are a great solution to chipped, stained, or worn down teeth. They provide an extra layer of protection and a new glossy shine.
In our office, our prepless veneers of choice are Lumineers. It’s our opinion that Lumineers offer our patients amazing advantages, and we believe that after trying them for yourself, you’ll agree!
We are very fond of these tiny ceramic strips because they allow for creativity on the part of the dentist to shape each tooth according to the form that will look best for your smile and keep your mouth most healthy. Lumineers really bring out the artists in us, and we can’t wait to make your mouth a masterpiece.
What Makes Lumineers Different From Other Veneers?
Ultra-Thin | First of all, the biggest advantage is that these prepless veneers are ultra-thin. Due to how thin Lumineers are, the Lumineer application is much easier than typical veneers for teeth. Where most porcelain veneers require reshaping teeth in order to fit naturally, at just 0.2 millimeters of thickness, Lumineers don’t require that shaping process. They can be placed directly on top of your natural tooth without feeling bulky or unnatural.
Natural Shine | Lumineers are also designed to be highly translucent. This makes your Lumineer veneers look much more like your original teeth, giving you a beautiful smile that looks and feels natural.
McCullough Dental does offer other types of veneers such as traditional porcelain veneers, as well. If you’re curious to learn more about them, click here. We are happy to give you the service that best suits your needs and your health.

Q & A
Easier and more flexible, Lumineers are a great way to get the smile you’ve always wanted without compromising any quality. Because prepless veneers are not as commonly known as porcelain ones, here’s a bit more about them:
How Long Will Lumineers Last? | Though porcelain veneers seem more sturdy, Lumineers might surprise you. These thin, great-looking veneers have been proven to last over twenty years while still giving you the same beautiful smile. Prepless veneers are a worthwhile investment that will pay dividends years down the road.
Do Lumineers Come With Any Food Restrictions? | Not at all. Lumineers are extremely durable, and foods and liquids should have no effect on the bonding. However, remember to maintain your usual oral hygiene habits. Lumineers are not a replacement for brushing and flossing on a regular basis.
Can Lumineers Be Removed? | Yes. Lumineers can be removed whenever you’d like because of their unique application process. Underneath the Lumineers, your teeth are in the same shape they were before the prepless veneers were placed, so if you change your mind and decide you don’t want them anymore, removing them is not only possible but very simple.
How Much Do Lumineers Cost? | The cost of your prepless veneers depends on the type of work you need done. Generally, because of their material and ease of application, Lumineers are cheaper than regular porcelain veneers.
