Ultrathin Veneers are extremely thin porcelain veneers that not only are strong but also aesthetically beautiful.
This style of veneers is very popular as it is the most conservative approach to cosmetic smile enhancements. Its design principals focus around minimal preparation of the teeth, which means very little tooth tissue is removed to achieve a great aesthetic result. As a consequence it is also a very long lasting treatment since most of the tooth structure is still intact underneath the veneer and has not been weakened in any way.
The treatment however, is very case specific due to the very thin and preservative nature of this type of veneers. The Ultrathin Veneers are often between 0.2 and 0.4 mm in thickness. Hence, this particular type of cosmetic treatment needs to be carried out by very highly skilled clinicians only. Our cosmetic dentists have been able to achieve some stunning results using Ultrathin Veneers and are well versed in the clinical techniques.
Benefits of Ultrathin Veneers:
Conservative Treatment. They require hardly any tooth preparation beforehand. This means that the teeth are not weakened in any way. Instead Ultrathin Veneers form a protective layer on your teeth.
No Drill. In many cases no drill is needed for this type of work. We only use the drill to roughen the glossy enamel surface to help with bonding.
Durable Treatment. Since the bonding is done primarily in the enamel layer (outer surface) of the tooth, the resulting bond strengths achieved are very high. This means this type of work is very long lasting.
Comprehensive Smile Design. We still design your new smile based upon the health of the foundation of your teeth, the stability of your bite and the final aesthetic outcome required. Hence you are able to obtain great looking teeth that also function well.
Personalised Smile. This treatment can be used for integrate subtle changes in your smile or create more of a drastic smile makeover. We can give the illusion of straighter and cosmetically beautiful teeth. Whatever type of smile you want he choice is yours.
Exquisite cosmetic results. We can create beautiful aesthetic results due to the nature of the type of porcelain involved.
Combined with Orthodontics. This treatment is very popular in combination with orthodontic teeth straightening treatments. Since the teeth are already in line and Ultrathin Veneers can simple enhance the aesthetics of them creating your perfect smile.
Minimal post-operative sensitivity. Since hardly any enamel is removed you are less likely to get sensitivity of your teeth after treatment.
