Thin Porcelain Veneers – Save Your Tooth Structure
Porcelain Veneers are beautiful, there is no question about that. A beautiful smile really does improve the quality of your life…but, is it worth cutting your teeth down to little nubs?
In my dental opinion no. Your teeth need to last you your entire life, so the more tooth structure you save the better. The good news is that top cosmetic dentists now are able to deliver thin, minimally invasive porcelain veneers that look amazing!
The thinner the porcelain veneer the more skill is required of the dental technician and the dentist. This is why I recommend patients who want a beautiful smile but don’t want their teeth cut down seek out the top cosmetic dentists in their community. How do you do that? Well, a great start would be to work with the worlds largest group of cosmetic dentists, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), and select one of their accredited cosmetic dentists. Why does this matter? It matters because to become accredited you need to pass the most rigorous written, clinical and verbal exam that exist in cosmetic dentistry. Once a dentist has achieved accreditation status with the AACD they are in the top 1% of dentists in the world!
