The idea of a white, straight, beautiful smile without harming the patients' natural teeth through preparation is a terrific idea. While most dental veneer cases do involve using dental veneers that require preparation or contouring of the teeth, for a small minority "prepless" veneers such as Durathin veneers are a perfect fit.
Durathin Veneers are an extremely high quality, American made veneer. A competing product that is highly advertised is the "Lumineer" brand, however these are manufactured in China and here at Desert Smiles we feel that Durathin Veneers are simply better for our patients.
Prepless veneers are perfect for patients who want a more attractive smile but dislike the idea of reducing a healthy tooth for cosmetic purposes. In cases where the Durathin Veneer is not appropriate, for example very dark tooth discolorations or misshapen teeth, your cosmetic dentist may use a combination of MAC Veneers and Durathin Veneers to achieve a bright, beautiful perfect smile.
Prepless veneers such as Durathin may also be used on younger patients enabling them to repair embarrassing smiles and maintaining their self-esteem.
Please contact your experienced Phoenix, Arizona area cosmetic dentist, Dr. Donald Wilcox, to find out if you are a candidate for Durathin Veneers.
