Dental veneers are an incredibly popular cosmetic dental treatment due to their durability, natural appearance, and other benefits. However, they do have at least one disadvantage: they often require the removal of a bit of tooth enamel. If you would like to enjoy the benefits of veneers without getting your teeth modified, our Columbia team might recommend that you receive DURAthin veneers. Continue reading to learn more about this treatment, and give us a call when you are ready to book your personal consultation.

What Are DURAthin Veneers?

DURAthin veneers are a brand-name type of porcelain veneer. Their biggest advantage is that they are constructed of ultra-thin porcelain. In fact, they are often just 0.2 – 0.4 millimeters wide. That is less than the average thickness of a fingernail!

Because DURAthin veneers have such a small profile, they can usually be attached to the teeth without any enamel modification. Once they are attached, they do not make the teeth look bulky or unnatural.

The Process of Getting DURAthin Veneers

To start the DURAthin veneers process, you will attend a consultation with our team. We will verify that DURAthin treatment is right for you, and then we will get started on planning the details of what your veneers will look like. If you want to accomplish anything specific, please let us know so we can make efforts to accommodate your preferences.

We will take impressions of your teeth, and those impressions will be used by a laboratory to fabricate your DURAthin veneers. Once the veneers are ready, we will verify that they meet our rigorous quality standards before we attach them to your teeth.

The Benefits of DURAthin Veneers

Some of the top benefits of DURAthin veneers include:

  • No enamel removal. Because no enamel modification is usually required, you can expect a pain-free and easy treatment process.
  • The process is reversible. If you ever change your mind about your veneers, they can be removed without the need for another type of restoration to be put in their place.
  • DURAthin veneers can address many of the same issues as regular porcelain veneers, such as chips, cracks, small gaps, and more.
  • Stain resistance. Just like regular veneers, DURAthin veneers are made out of porcelain, which is highly resistant to stains.

DURAthin Veneers vs Traditional Veneers

The biggest difference between DURAthin veneers and traditional veneers is the fact that traditional veneers are much thicker, so they almost always require the removal of some tooth enamel. However, one possible advantage of traditional veneers is that because they are thicker, they may be more resistant to breakage. There may also be differences in cost and in the types of aesthetic imperfections that each type of veneer is suitable for.

When you visit our team for a cosmetic consultation, we will help you compare the pros and cons of your treatment options. You will then be able to make a well-informed decision about how you want to enhance your smile.
