    ProVeneer: The direct veneer system that makes cosmetic dentistry easier and better

    Here’s how ProVeneer is benefiting the author's patients and how it can benefit your practice and patients as well.

    During the past 25 years, there have been game-changers in cosmetic dentistry, such as the introduction of porcelain veneers to the dental profession in the fall of 1983. However, in this author's experience, nothing has changed the practice of cosmetic dentistry as much as the new ProVeneer System.

    Here’s how ProVeneer is benefiting our patients and how it can benefit your practice and patients as well.

    As you undoubtedly know, porcelain veneers are invasive, often requiring placement of 6-10 veneers and can take from 2-3 visits until you finally cement the veneer. Additionally, the high fee associated with porcelain veneers results in many patients hesitating to have work done.

    On the other hand, direct veneers are typically less invasive and are more affordable but they also have issues.

    Concerns include stain/wear, the need to place dentin, enamel and incisal shades, the time required to sculpt, shape, polish and deal with potential porosity, including struggling with composites that stick to our plastic instruments and gloves.

    Cutting-edge technology leads to rapid growth

    In light of the above issues, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    This author has found that advances in direct veneer systems are changing the cosmetic dentistry landscape. One system in particular, ProVeneer, solves the majority of issues listed above.

    With new direct veneer technology, dentists have the tools to do same-day cosmetic dentistry and create natural looking veneers using a resin-based foundation material that does not stick to your gloved fingers or plastic instrument.

    As you work with this new generation of direct veneers, you will notice that you won't need tints or opaques in 90+% of cases. Also, there is no need to add bulk of composite due to placing dentin, enamel and incisal shades (the veneer can be as thin as .1mm while remaining fracture resistant), finishing and polishing is simple and only takes minutes to obtain an enamel-like luster. The emergence profile is seamless without conventional finishing and polishing procedures that cause gingival bleeding. You don't need to purchase additional equipment or expensive startup kits. Final results are achieved before committing to having work done with patent-pending Smile Preview Veneers (how wonderful is that!). The procedure is non-invasive and the cost for a smile transformation is affordable to patients.
