Considering a Smile Makeover?
Check Out Our Hybrid LR™ Veneer System!
What if you merged two different methods of fabricating veneers each which has distinct advantages and disadvantages and got the best of both without the disadvantages? Introducing the Hybrid LR™ Veneer.
In the early nineties when veneers became popular, they were hand made with little technology using feldspathic porcelain. Porcelain powers were mixed with liquids that create a porcelain paste. This paste was placed over thin foil that was adapted to a stone model of tooth. After this was done you would gently lift foil with porcelain and bake in a furnace. The restoration could give incredible esthetics but because porcelain can shrink 15-20%, the fit was many times poor and restorations were fragile and weak. The next evolution came with the introduction of pressable lithium disilicate.
This material has good esthetics, not outstanding but incredible strength and fit to your tooth approaching 30 microns. With our advanced computer design and milling center we mill our veneers and crowns in this material with the front of the restoration in full cutback mode. This means we have created room for a master ceramist to micro hand layer the restoration with feldspathic porcelain to create incredible esthetics. Now we have a restoration with incredible strength, fit and esthetics. Twenty first century technology with old world craftsmanship.
TRUST THE EXPERTS
Our signature Smile Design by David & Associates Center for Cosmetic Dentistry offers the synergy of our world-renowned master ceramists combined with a unique multimillion dollar in-house computer designed milling center.
Accuracy & Precision
By milling veneers that are in full cut back mode we can achieve increased precision fit of restorations to teeth of around 30 microns! By milling with the front of veneers or crowns in full cutback mode we then have room to have master ceramists meticulously hand layer porcelain in multiple layers to achieve stunning esthetics.
Short Term Temporaries
