Ultrathin Dental Veneers Allow Fast, Easy Smile Improvement

updated

Thanks to modern materials and techniques, many patients can now enjoy the advantages of beautiful dental veneers with little or no preparation of existing teeth. The result is a gorgeous new smile in less time and with less discomfort than with traditional veneers.

The key to the new veneers, including LUMINEERS®, DURAthin Veneers®, and VivaneersTM, is the development of ceramic material much stronger than was available only a few years ago. This strength allows the crafting of ultrathin veneers, making it possible to bond the veneers to the front of the existing teeth with little or no removal of tooth material.

Because of their thickness, traditional veneers can only be applied after removing most, or all, of the tooth's enamel layer, often exposing the dentin layer beneath. The procedure is time-consuming and requires extensive anesthetic treatment. Because so much of the existing tooth is removed, the procedure must be permanent.

Many patients can have the new thin veneers applied without the removal of tooth material. In some cases, very small modifications may be required. This means that many patients can have the procedure performed with little or no anesthetic. It also means that, for most patients, the veneers can be removed, if necessary, without exposing dentin.

Consult a cosmetic dentist to learn if LUMINEERS®, DURAthin Veneers®, or VivaneersTM are the answer to your dream of a bright new smile.
