Lumineers is generally NOT the best option for minor cosmetic enhancements. Since Lumineers do not require tooth preparation if they are used to correct a single tooth then they might appear bulky compared to the adjacent teeth. Lumineers are well-suited for younger patients assuming all other criteria are suitable.
