Renew a Worn Smile with Dental Veneers in St. LouisDr Allan on Veneers Read Transcript
When somebody asks about veneers, one, I'm incredibly happy that we can do it. 'Cause when I first graduated, you couldn't do it. The big difference between veneers and crown and bridge are that they are much less invasive. So again, we start with, What does the patient want? What’s most important about their smile?
The second step is, is that we can now scan patients instead of impressions, play around with that scan and then tell them what we can do. So it can be a combination of different procedures; veneers are the most conservative. But I can change a patient’s smile and give them more lip support, I can make it any shade, any shape that we want, and with nothing else in dentistry can you do it so conservatively.
Many, many times, we'll likely prep the teeth, no anesthetic, hardly any preparation at all, scan it. What I mean by scan is we're not taking those gooey impressions in a mouth, it's just a video picture of somebody's mouth. Scan that, play around with it on the computer, make those veneers here ourselves a lot of times. Then if I need to adjust one tooth here and there a little bit more, then we can numb it up, adjust it, and make those last one or two here while they wait.
So never before, before the CEREC machine have I ever been able to do it as conservative because scanning's much more accurate than impressions, and I can make them all and still make those teeth that have to have a little more touch-up work on them, and do it chairside and still have it done in one day when they come back.

Choose Veneers For a Radiant New Smile
Dental veneers can make quick work of many types of smile flaws, especially in the skilled hands of Dr. Allan Link. Veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that bond to the front of imperfect teeth to conceal and repair small cracks, chips, pits, as well as teeth that are worn, gapped and uneven. Our patients love teeth veneers because they so quickly transform their tired, worn smile into a beautiful masterpiece!
There are many types of veneers on the market today. Using the advanced technology of our CEREC system, Dr. Link will select the proper material, shade, and level of translucency to make sure your teeth create the perfect smile for you. We often use Lumineers brand veneers because of their high quality and versatility, but we will use whatever kind of veneers work best for your situation.
To place your new veneers, we usually have to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for them. However, you may be a good candidate for prepless veneers, meaning that little or no enamel will need removal. Our team will discuss all your veneers options with you during your consultation.
