DURAthin Veneers – The Gift Of Non-Invasive Dentistry
DURAthin Veneers—a revolutionary technique that’s changing the way dentists think about cosmetic dentistry through little or no tooth reduction. By using a traditional porcelain build-up technique instead of the popular pressed ceramic products, DURAthin technicians are able to make shade changes, correct ortho problems, and make other cosmetic improvements while removing little or no patient enamel.
DURAthin Veneers are individually handcrafted by a handful of artisans at Experience Dental Studio—not in a large production-style lab. The traditional fabrication techniques employed are among the most proven in the profession, refined by Mark and his team to take advantage of today’s most beautiful and technologically advanced porcelain materials.
Durathin veneers are very aesthetically pleasing because they are created by blocking out undesirable colors and allowing the beauty of the natural teeth to shine through. Prior to bonding, these veneers are extremely fragile because they are so thin (sometimes less than 4mm). However, once they are bonded they become very durable.
One of the greatest gifts you can give your patients is the gift of minimally invasive dentistry. According to David Hornbrook, D.D.S., “The popularity of prepless veneers is being driven in part by increased patient desire to prevent removal of healthy tooth structure.” And Mark adds, “Providing the options your patients expect builds trust and acceptance of your recommendations.”
DURAthin Founders Receive Award From The AACD
Dr. Wells and Mark Willes co-developed DURAthin Veneers. In 2008, they were awarded the AACD’s Outstanding Scientific Advancement in Cosmetic Dentistry Award for their work with no-prep veneers.
