WHAT ARE MICRO THIN VENEERS?
Micro-thin veneers are a revolutionary approach to improving cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers are thin white shells that are designed to cover up imperfections in your smile. Unlike regular dental veneers, micro-thin veneers don’t require the removal of healthy tooth enamel in order to restore your teeth. The material used is bonded directly to the teeth to improve their appearance. Along with repairing damage, veneers can also increase the size of your teeth or make your teeth appear straight.
Micro-thin veneers are a fantastic cosmetic solution for those who aren’t confident in their smile. Patients who have elected for this procedure have noticed vast improvements in their everyday life. Not only are they more confident, but they also find themselves smiling more in pictures and with friends. Talk to our team to determine if this cosmetic dental procedure is right for your smile.
Micro-thin veneers may be suitable for adults and adolescents seeking to effectively address several cosmetic dental conditions, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Very slightly discolored or stained teeth
- Gaps or spaces (diastemas) between teeth
- Misshapen, fanged or pointy and slightly misaligned teeth
- Slightly crowded teeth
- Worn teeth
- Small teeth
- Enhancing an already attractive smile into a “Hollywood” smile with a smile makeover
There are several micro-thin veneer options – including Lumineers, Durathin and Vivaneers, among others. It is important to note that Lumineers – the most heavily marketed – or other micro-thin veneers are not the only (or most appropriate) cosmetic dentistry alternative for every case of discolored, crooked, chipped, misaligned or otherwise misshapen teeth. For example, while veneers are often called “instant orthodontics” and a viable option for slightly crooked teeth, they are not recommended for severely misaligned teeth. In such instances – despite the longer treatment time – your dentist might recommend braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign. Additionally, if a whiter, brighter smile is your goal, your dentist may recommend an in office, take home or a combination of these tooth-whitening treatments.
