Veneers are one solution to solve cosmetic dental issues and provide great-looking results. Completed dental veneers cover the front and sides of teeth and are custom-made to blend in perfectly to complete a beautiful smile makeover. In planning for your treatment at Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry – Dennis J. Wells, DDS, take into consideration your short-term and long-term goals, along with your budget.
Micro Thin vs Porcelain Veneers
When choosing the best dental veneers, there are several key issues to think about:
- The overall condition of your teeth – any overwhelming cosmetic problems or tooth damage may require a permanent option such as porcelain veneers.
- For long-term stability use porcelain veneers. They require more tooth preparation and alteration of the enamel surface which makes them a permanent restoration.
- For a budget use MicroThin veneers. They are less costly overall than porcelain and can be the optimal medium-range solution for younger patients who will consider a more permanent solution later on.
We will discuss all aspects of your treatment plan with you to consider and help you to make the best decision for your overall oral health and personal lifestyle.
MicroThin Veneers: What to Expect
During your treatment planning, we make sure your final result will meet your expected outcome and will look as natural as possible to blend with your overall appearance. We will take into account your facial design including your unique as important factors in the process of designing dental veneers that will look great, last a long time, and improve your dental health.
After we remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel, we then first take dental impressions that are used to fabricate your unique veneers. In some cases, there is no tooth preparation needed. 2-3 weeks later, your new veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth and polished to achieve a nice shine and natural look. Your finished MicroThin veneers will be durable and last a long time with good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups.
