Do you ever look in the mirror and desire a brighter, whiter and more even smile, but without the need to drill or damage your natural teeth?
NuVeneers® are now being offered by leading cosmetic dentists Dr. Robert Rifkin and Dr. Rodney Raanan in their Beverly Hills office.
These ultra-new, ultra-thin and custom-designed alternatives to standard veneers have the added bonus that they require little or no removal of the tooth’s enamel, no anesthetic and very little to no drilling. This is the perfect solution for teeth that have small chips and cracks or appear discolored and permanently stained. In addition to their benefits in changing the look of your enamel, NuVeneers® are also ideal for filling in gaps or lengthening small teeth.
To fit a standard porcelain veneer on a natural tooth, the tooth must first be prepared. The dentist prepares the tooth by drilling away the enamel layer, so that the veneer can be bonded to the remaining part of the tooth. Remember that this layer of enamel will never grow back. In some cases, the preparation even extends into the dentin layer below the enamel. This requires an injection of local anesthetic. In contrast, NuVeneers® are bonded to the teeth without destroying the enamel.
Standard porcelain veneers can appear thick and bulky, especially where they meet the gum, giving them the trademark “Chiclet” look. Due to NuVeneers® being ultra-thin, they become virtually undetectable. Each NuVeneer is handcrafted by Dr. Rifkin and Dr. Raanan’s in-house Master Ceramists, with colors selected from a vast array of pigments which create a more natural-looking color.
While standard veneers are often machine made from a set format, Dr. Rifkin and Dr. Raanan’s NuVeneers® are individually handcrafted in their in-house lab, with each set custom made to suit each client’s unique smile.
“My teeth and my smile are now just the way I want, and I can't thank them enough for giving me that confidence.”
NuVeneers® can benefit patients with the following dental conditions:
However, not every patient is a viable candidate for NuVeneers®. Prior to developing a treatment plan that includes NuVeneers®, Drs. Rifkin and Raanan will review your medical and dental history, examine your teeth, gums, and bone, and discuss your specific needs. In certain cases, they might recommend other treatments such as standard veneers, crowns, tooth whitening, or orthodontics, if those services are more appropriate.
As world-leading cosmetic dentists with decades of experience between them, Dr. Rifkin and Dr. Raanan are the true innovative masters of NuVeneers®.
