Whether used solely for cosmetic enhancements or as a way to treat oral health complications, Edelweiss composite veneers can be used in a variety of clinical settings. Use Edelweiss composite veneers to correct anatomical deformities, repair damage caused by bruxism, change the shape and length of teeth close a diastema, fix tooth discoloration, or treat caries. At a fraction of the cost for most lab-based systems, Edelweiss unlocks what was once out of reach for many people: a long-lasting, esthetic smile.

  • Economical price allows you to offer esthetic smiles to more patients
  • One-appointment procedure—start to finish
  • The only composite veneers with a laser-sintered surface, offering exceptional durability
  • No lab time

Indications for Use

Edelweiss

​Edelweiss composite veneers are made using advanced technological methods. Each veneer in the Edelweiss system is laser sintered combining a high-gloss, uniform surface with a thermally tempered base for maximum strength. Edelweiss composite veneers are also tested using state-of-the-art methods to ensure their strength and durability. With their durable makeup and natural look, Edelweiss composite veneers offer the perfect combination of function and esthetics.

Clinicals

Edelweiss

Correcting Anatomical Deformities

​Anatomical deformities in patient’s teeth include distorted shape and irregularities on the enamel surface. Edelweiss composite veneers restored the natural shape of the patient’s teeth and greatly improved the esthetic aspect of the patient’s smile.

Before.
After.

Repairing Damage Caused by Bruxism

​Patient shows considerable damage on nearly all anterior teeth from bruxism. Edelweiss composite veneers restored the incisal edge and the natural look of the patient’s teeth.

Changing the Shape and Length of Teeth

​Patient is missing both laterals, and the lengths of her centrals are inconsistent. Edelweiss composite veneers restored symmetry and uniformity to give the patient a truly esthetic smile.

Before.

Closing a Diastema

​Anterior diastema closed with Edelweiss composite veneers. Note the tight contacts, incisal translucency, and natural-looking halo effect.

Fixing Tooth Discoloration

​Staining in the upper third of the anterior teeth was corrected with Edelweiss composite veneers. In addition to offering the patient a more natural tooth color, Edelweiss composite veneers also repaired the patient’s chipped incisal margins.

Technical Details

Minimally Invasive

​Edelweiss composite veneers are available in an assortment of shapes and sizes, which were expertly developed based on a study of variations in natural tooth anatomy. This scientifically established range allows you to start with a composite veneer that already closely matches the shape and size of your patient's tooth. This reduces the amount of required tooth preparation, allowing you keep more natural tooth structure intact.

Great Results in Just One Appointment

​With Edelweiss, there’s no lab time. There are no separate appointments for consultations, impressions, temporary seatings, and permanent restorations. All of this means Edelweiss makes it possible for you to give your patients a natural-looking, long-lasting smile in one appointment—start to finish.

Economically Priced

With its economical price, Edelweiss unlocks the opportunity for you to offer natural-looking restorations to patients who may have previously chosen not to have esthetic work done because of the traditionally high cost. In other words, Edelweiss enables you to offer a beautiful smile to patients who never thought they could have one.

Smooth Inorganic Surface

​Even magnified 31x, Edelweiss composite veneers appear smooth with no visible composite structure.

Distinct Layer of Sintered Glass

​Magnified 10,000x, the layer of laser-sintered glass can be seen. In the process of laser sintering, nanoparticles in the composite are fused together, creating a strong, durable material. Because of this durability, Edelweiss composite veneers are less likely to chip and wear down, so you can be confident the authentic mamelons and incisal edges of each composite veneer will stay intact.

Laser Sintering

​Every composite veneer in the Edelweiss system is laser sintered to create an extremely durable surface. This enhanced durability makes Edelweiss composite veneers more resistant to scratching and wear than other composite veneers.

​Ultradent is committed to supporting the dental community. Edelweiss is sold directly to licensed dental professionals only. It’s important for dentists to ensure their patients understand the Edelweiss procedure, have realistic expectations of the outcome, and have an enjoyable experience so they are pleased with the final result.
