"Wonderful article you have given for no prep veneers. Thank you for your posting . I would suggest getting the teeth straightened first to relieve the crowding and correcting the overbite. Then see if you need veneers. Invisalign may help…"
We came up with a very neat idea to drive patient traffic to the dental office with an Real Time Q&A and Online Appointment Booking System. We need some real beta testers and who can test it better than the dentists users themselves? Let…"
"Good tip on the HT ingots- I have moved into doing many of my veneers using LT and either underwaxing or cutting back to be thin and layering to get the best of both worlds. I have found that HT ingots generally look great for partial coverage…"
"Minimal prep veneers are the rage for some . Even the lumineers people say that most often a minimal prep is needed. That said, if the patients teeth are inclined slightly lingual then maybe a no prep can be done. Pascal Magne has felt that enamel…"
"No question zirconia is a very useful material but there is also no doubt about design and technique sensitivity. My migration to e-max is due to the fact that for the most part you are using a very strong monolayer ceramic with only a minimal…"
"I am all in on e-Max and have been using it as my primary all ceramic for several years Probably 80% of my fixed individual units are done with it including partial coverage which is a major part of my restorative armamentarium.I have been using…"

I haven't done any "Lumineer" veneers. I have done minimal prep where the goal was to improve the contours with…"

"I suppose you mean the snap-on...i have attended a lecture by the inventor.
I think some of our patients will benefit from such a solution.
Among them: people who cannot afford the conventional treatments, people of really compromized health who…"
We came up with a very neat idea to drive patient traffic to the dental office with an Real Time Q&A and Online Appointment Booking System. We need some real beta testers and who can test it better than the dentists users themselves? Let me know what you think of the idea. It is just a beta set up for now, so nothing is concrete yet until we get feedbacks from actual users. Please make suggestions from the practical side of the booking procedures. What are the features that you like to have in place so that the patients from your area can actually get booked into your dental office. Through the surveys, we are going to tailor make the features to suit your requirements. For this weekend, if you have some time, please check it out at www.designsmile.com/new. Beta testing starts on Monday. Thanks in advance!
