3Digital CAD/CAP Software LUMITray uses state-of-the-art technology that facilitates digital design and fabrication for beautifully precise veneers.With this technology, technicians build the veneers – to micron accurate specifications – directly on a digital 3-D model.This process creates a superior fit at the gingival margin, which means less finishing.
4Digital PreviewBecause the system is digital, you can preview, change and accept the restoration from your dental office before it’s fabricated, ensuring that final restorations are to exact specifications.4

7LUMIKey Reshaping Guides If reshaping is requested, you will receive a LUMIKey reshaping guide, which is created using the same digital specifications of the restoration.The LUMIKey simplifies the placement process and produces accurate results.
8LUMIGuard Is your LUMITray patient a bruxer? LUMIGuard is the answer. LUMIGuard is an occlusal protection plate that can be worn during the day or night.The custom fit and minimalistic design of LUMIGuard means you can provide comfortable protection for your patients’ perfect new smiles.Available at the time of placement of the LUMINEERS with LUMITray.
11Step 2 Break the glaze of the enamel Take medium coarse or fine diamond and roughen the outer surface of the enamelDraw the diamond across the incisal edge at a 45-degree angle (This allows for a more full seating of the LUMINEERS and increases mechanical retention)
12Step 2 Lightly roughen the facials of all teeth to receive Lumineers Be thorough and methodical
13Step 3 Etching Etch the teeth with Etch ‘N’ Seal for 20 seconds Rinse thoroughly with water13
14Step 5 Bonding Add 5 coats of Tenure A + B Add 1 coat of Tenure S Tooth surfaces must be shiny14
15Step 6 Prime-Bonding on LUMINEERS These come pre-etched, pre- hydrolyzed and pre-silanatedAdd 1 coat of Tenure A + B on the inner side of the LUMINEERSAdd 1 coat of Tenure S on the inner side of the LUMINEERS15
16Ultra-Bond Plus on LUMINEERS Step 7Ultra-Bond Plus on LUMINEERSAdd a layer of Ultra-Bond Plus resin cement to the inner side of the LUMINEERS. Work upwards from incisal edge of the LUMINEERS to gingival edge and keep contact with the LUMINEERS (see diagram)16
17Step 8 Insert the LUMITray Remove the Paint-On Dental Dam or interdental strips!Center the LUMITray (midline)Insert the tray in one smooth movement. Apply a light, continuous, buccal pressure. Take your time for the placement.Remove excess Ultra-Bond cement at the gingiva with microbrush17
18Step 9 Set the Sapphire Plus Light for 3 seconds Tack-cure with a sweeping movement of the 9mm tipWith a probe remove more excess cementLight-cure each tooth 3 seconds through tray with Sapphire Plus18
19Step 10 Remove LUMITray Remove the LUMITray (don’t twist) Remove the retentions with Schure 349Remove any excess on the lingual side of the teeth with Schure 34919
20Open Interdental Spaces Step 11Open Interdental SpacesRemove Ultra-Bond Plus cement from interproximal spaces with a CeriSawMaintain complete control over the instrument. If difficult, postpone to follow-up visit.Advise you leave the contacts alone for two days.20
21Light-Cure the LUMINEERS Step 12Light-Cure the LUMINEERSCure each LUMINEERS individually for a second time on both the lingual and buccal sides for 5 seconds with the Sapphire Plus Light21
22Check Occlusion and Polish Step 13Check Occlusion and PolishCheck and finish the occlusionPolish the LUMINEERS with Porcelain Polishing Paste22
