At Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentwood TN, our team is never idle. If we aren’t treating patients with cosmetic dentistry options to improve their smiles and confidence, we are researching cutting-edge dental technology in order to stay on the vanguard of healthcare. We even design and test our own procedures; as is the case with DURAthin® and Micro-thin veneers. Pioneered by Dr. Dennis Wells and dental lab technician Mark Willes, this top-of-the-line cosmetic option offers tons of potential.
Our team has put together an explanation of this technology, as well as what benefits it can bring you and your smile. Check it out below!
What Are DURAthin® and Micro-thin Veneers?
Similarly to their traditional counterparts, DURAthin® and Micro-thin veneers are a custom-made layer of porcelain designed to change the teeth and enhance the smile. So, why all the big fuss? After all, couldn’t you receive the same benefits from standard porcelain veneers. Well, sort of!
Although traditional veneers do a good job of protecting the front-facing part of your smile, and we do offer them at our practice, they also require the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel to properly adhere to your teeth. While this is not a big deal for most, some patients find that they don’t have enough remaining enamel to justify the procedure or its structural benefits.
DURAthin® and Micro-thin veneers are considered prepless veneers, however, which means no enamel removal is necessary. This is perfect for patients who are looking to maintain as much of their natural dental structure as possible. No drilling or invasive procedures are involved, which means this is also the perfect choice for those suffering from dental phobia or anxiety.
Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentwood TN is always learning new ways to help our patients. Patients from Brentwood, Nashville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, and Spring Hill come to us for cosmetic dentistry options like prepless and traditional veneers, and patients also come to us for dental implants.
