Beautiful and Natural Ultrathin Veneers
Porcelain Veneers can now be created with no or very minimal tooth preparation to produce a stunning new smile. We can use Ultrathin Veneers in a Smile Makeover, a Smile Mini Makeover or for an individual tooth.
These veneers are often 0.2 – 0.4mm thick yet they are strong, long lasting and aesthetic. We can custom create the smile that you want for your front teeth in combination with Smile2SuitU.
Cosmetic Dentistry WITHOUT Drilling is now the way forward. A drive for new innovations and cutting edge technology (like teeth implants) has allowed for this much conservative approach to award those looking for a new smile makeover but with a little drilling and without pain. Find out more here.
Ultrathin Veneers are made from IPS e.max lithium disilicate. They can have a strength of 500 MPa strength and 2.0 – 2.5 MPa∙m1/2 fracture toughness. Thus they can be made to be paper thin, yet have the strength to work with the bite forces generated in the mouth.
These veneers can be used as part of the Emax system where if used in combination with other treatments such as a crown, bridge or an implant, we can reassure a good colour match. This is because Emax is layering porcelain that can be used for all types of porcelain restorations, thus creating the exact and uniform shade, texture and lustre for the entire smile.
Previous to Emax, the ability to create thin, strong, colour matched highly aesthetic veneers was very difficult. This is because the porcelain of choice was feldspathic porcelain. This type of porcelain is highly aesthetic but only had a fifth of the strength of Emax, thus the thickness of these veneers had to be larger and ranged from 0.5mm to 0.7mm.
The manufacture of these UltraThin Veneers can be challenging, thus requiring a skilled and experienced ceramist technician to create them.
The process of creating a new smile using Ultrathin Veneers is the same as that of any smile makeover process.
It involves three appointments: a visit for teeth preparation and creation of a trial smile; thereafter a review appointment to verify that you are happy with the final smile; and then finally a fitting visit.
Here at The Perfect Smile Studios we expertly use veneers to create the amazing smile you’ve dreamed of.
