Lumineers for backs of teeth

I was thinking of getting Lumineers, but wondered if they’d cover all of my teeth or just the visible part of my teeth. I have pretty stained stained teeth on the back from coffee.  Will Lumineers help with that?

Lumineers are simply a brand of porcelain veneers. So they can do anything that other brands can do.  Covering the back of your teeth is not part of that. It just covers the front of your teeth.

If you wanted to cover the back of your teeth, you would need to get a dental crown. That is an extreme procedure to do to deal wtih the stains on the back of your teeth.  It takes off a lot of the structure of your teeth.

If you’re looking for a smile makeoever, you can still get lumineers. The stains on your teeth can easily be dealt with by a good cleaning and some teeth whitening.
