edelweiss VENEERs are prefabricated, polymerized, radiopaque, highly filled nano-hybrid composite enamel shells with an inorganic surface. The composite veneers make direct veneering of single or multiple anterior teeth easier than ever before. They are cemented using the same material that they are made from, which leads to a stabile bond (between the dentin/enamel + composite + edelweiss VENEER). edelweiss VENEERs consist of enamel shells in 4 universal upper anterior sizes (extra small, small, medium, large); and 2 universal lower anterior sizes (small, medium), that are available in one shade (Enamel VENEER – a translucent, natural shade).

The best for your patients

«By combining and adapting of the latest composite and laser technology, edelweiss dentistry has made a quantum leap into the future of minimally invasive dentistry. The laser process combines the best of two worlds: an homogeneous, inorganic and maximum gloss surface with a thermally tempered and dynamic composite core. Thus, an optimal integration in function and esthetics is achieved. This, combined with maximum cost-effectiveness, has convinced me and my patients.»

“The difference lies in the high similarity with nature.”

VENEERs from edelweiss

is state of the art for modern and minimally invasive esthetic dentistry. For the first time in the history of dental, it is now possible to work with prefabricated veneers made from nano-hybrid composite using modern laser technology. Never before has it been feasible to directly create the natural shape and youthful luminance of a tooth, so easily and perfectly in only one appointment. Its versatile area of application together with its time and cost saving procedure make edelweiss VENEERs a sound investment in the future with the best interest of the patient in mind. Convince yourself.

Transformation with edelweiss DIRECT VENEERs

The size selection

The choice of the tooth shape is performed with the available Sizing Guide (edelweiss VENEER Sizing Guide). The Sizing Guide is positioned over the teeth to be restored, in which the visible profile allows for proper selection of the best fitting edelweiss VENEER. Adjustments can be illustrated directly on the template.

Sizes - One size for all

Based on a study of all shapes and size variations of natural tooth anatomy, prefabricated and contourable universal VENEER shapes for the upper and lower arch were developed in the following range of sizes (20 lower S/M 10 each – 30 upper S/M/L 10 each – 6 upper XS)

edelweiss Shade Guide

edelweiss dentin and enamel shades based on the natural layering technique.

Shade Selection

Placing the enamel VENEER shell over the dentin core. For light refraction place glycerine within enamel shell first.

Natural Layering Technique

The concept was proposed in 1995 by Prof. Dr. D. Dietschi and was published for the first time in 1997. It is based on the idea of creating a synthesis between light, materialand color in order to mimic the natural tooth structure. edelweiss COMPOSITE restructures teeth using two toothlike masses that are comparable to the vita dentin and enamel…

5 x Dentin

Single opacity - same hue, but different chroma levels - fluorescence. From Dentin A0, for the restoration of bleached teeth to Dentin A3.5, for cervical restorations of darker teeth for elderly patients.

Dentin Body shades exhibit high opacity and fluorescence which correspond to natural shades of dentin.

1 x Enamel

Enamel shade intensifies the translucency, which increase the true opalescence for all optical variations found in natural dentition.

Basic Tint: Enamel

3 x Effect Shades

Effect Blue serves to enhance blue-opalescent effects of the incisal edge.

Effect Ice helps to simulate widespread enamel opacities.

Opaque White is mainly used in combination with other shades to produce “opaquers” of desired shade to cover either severely discolored tissues or metals.

edelweiss VENEERs & OCCLUSIONVDs consist of the shade Enamel – Vita Enamel AO. The respective dentin and enamel shades used to cement the VENEER will determine the final shade tone of the restoration.

Example: edelweiss VENEER (Vita Enamel Shade AO) cemented with Dentin Shade A3 (Vita Dentin Shade A3) will result in the Vita Dentin Shade A3.

Technical Aspects

View of a sectioned extracted human molar with a cemented prefabricated composite VENEER bonded to half of the enamel surface and the other half to the dentin surface.

The most relevant observation made was obtained upon the evaluation of the inner adaptation of the restoration. No defects were visible at the interface of the enamel or in between the restorative composite and the VENEER, which confirmed the excellent bond strength and stability at both interfaces (dentin/enamel to composite, composite to edelweiss VENEER).
