Porcelain veneers are used by dentists to improve the appearance of a patients teeth. Veneers are completely unique to each patient’s individual smile, and custom fit to provide long lasting comfort and reliability. However, in some cases, patients may find the application as feeling too thick, thus disrupting speech patterns, or even causing difficulty in eating habits. In such cases, it may be necessary to seek alternative options.
DURAthin veneers are made from a very thin porcelain material designed in order to adhere to the front of the teeth without the removal of tooth enamel. The application techniques used are largely similar to those of traditional veneers, however many patients find that the DURAthin brand is more comfortable.
In general, patients with narrow smiles or those who have had teeth extracted in the past are wonderful candidates for this type of procedure. DURAthins have also been applied to individuals with worn or smaller teeth with beautiful results.
