DURAthin and Micro-thin Veneers
What Are DURAthin and Micro-thin Dental Veneers?
Over the years, we have been proud to provide cutting edge dentistry to our Nashville, Tennessee clients. In keeping with this tradition, Dr. Wells has recently pioneered a new smile design procedure about which we are very excited.
The new DURAthin™ Veneers and Micro-thin Veneers, developed by Dr. Wells and dental lab technician Mark Willes, are changing the way we approach cosmetic dentistry. This revolutionary technique removes some of the concerns you may have about removing healthy tooth enamel with traditional dental veneers.
Just like traditional veneers, DURAthin veneers and Micro-thin veneers are a custom-made layer of porcelain designed to change the teeth and enhance the smile just like regular porcelain veneers. The difference is that with these prepless veneers, none of your natural enamel is removed. If you qualify for DURAthin veneers or Micro-thin veneers, we will design the porcelain to go on top of your teeth without doing any drilling or reduction.
How Do DURAthin and Micro-thin Porcelain Veneers Work?
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 contact lens-like DURAthin and Micro-thin 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 extracted for orthodontic reasons in the past can be great candidates for this exciting procedure. We have also used this technology or prepless veneers to ‘turn back the clock’ for people with small or worn teeth, giving them a more youthful smile.
