How user-friendly Uveneer saves one practitioner time and energy

Article

Why one practices uses Uveneer-a dentist-designed innovative system that creates contoured and polished composite veneers-for a variety of procedures, and quickly came to appreciate the user-friendly and time-saving advantages offered by the state-of-the-art technology.

Hal Stewart, DDS, and his dental assistant, Anne Armstrong, have found Uveneer to be a welcome addition to his Flower Mound, Texas dental practice.

They use Uveneer-a dentist-designed innovative system that creates contoured and polished composite veneers-for a variety of procedures, and quickly came to appreciate the user-friendly and time-saving advantages offered by the state-of-the-art technology.

Dr. Stewart on using Uveneer: 

As a key opinion leader, I was sent a Uveneer kit by Ultradent. This was in the summer of 2015. When I reviewed the kit and the accompanying video, Uveneer made sense for my practice.

What results have you experienced from using Uveneer?

Quick, predictable tooth form and an unmatched polished surface. 

When doing direct resin veneers, creating the form and then getting a great final polish are both challenging and time-consuming for the average dentist. Uveneer helps the dentist save chair time and create predictable and beautiful esthetics.

My patients have been very pleased that I can offer a major esthetic procedure at a fee that is affordable for them. Patients are really pleased not only with the esthetics but with the shorter appointment times. And Uveneer is profitable for my practice even though I can charge significantly less than what I would charge for a porcelain veneer.

Dental assistant Anne Armstrong on using Uveneer: 

When we’re doing a procedure and something comes up such as a Class V restoration, it just makes a very user-friendly and convenient way to restore that problem and take care of that issue. 

It’s very easy to get out and have it accessible. It doesn’t even have to be out on the counter, and Dr. Stewart can say, “Let’s do Uveneer on this,” and I can go directly to get that little box. It’s just so user-friendly. The other composite-restoring kits we’ve used before have a few different pieces, but this is just the one basic kit and your composite instruments. It’s been so easy to learn and easy to work with. 

It is easier on the patients because Uveneer makes the whole procedure go easier and faster. The patients are happy they are getting in and out quicker. Seeing them leave happy with the results-that’s the best thing right there.

There’s always an emergency here or there, so it’s nice to have that extra 45 minutes that you save by using Uveneer. That saved time may allow us to fit in more patient time. Or it gives Dr. Stewart more time with that patient alone so he can address something else with their dental care. 

What are some other advantages Uveneer offers?

I love how there is less tooth enamel destruction while using it. You don’t have to pick away as much tooth enamel. It’s predictable-the outcome is going to be what we expected. It’s been great. I’ve really been impressed with it.
