Over the years, we have been proud to provide cutting edge dentistry to our dental clients. In keeping with this tradition, our doctors have earned certification for a new smile design procedure, and we are very excited. In certain cases, very thin porcelain veneers can be designed to adhere directly to the front of teeth with no removal of the enamel! This means that for some people, we can design the smile of their dreams without even drilling on their natural teeth.
The new DURAthin™ veneers, developed by a dentist and his master ceramist, are changing the way we approach cosmetic dentistry. This revolutionary technique removes some of the concerns you may have about removing healthy tooth enamel.
The contact lens-like veneers are bonded directly to the tooth in instances where we are trying to increase the size of the teeth or enhance a narrow arch width. Generally speaking, people who have had teeth removed for orthodontic reasons in the past can be great candidates for this exciting procedure. We have also used this technology to “turn back the clock” for people with small or worn teeth, giving them a more youthful smile.
To find out if you are a good candidate for DURAthin™ veneers, call us to schedule a thorough diagnostic visit.
