Brea Dental Practice Attends Training on Noninvasive, Prepless Veneers

BREA, CA--(Marketwired - March 29, 2015) - Dr. John Whitworth, a talented Brea cosmetic dentist, and his staff attended a Lumineers training course on prepless veneers earlier this month.

Dr. Whitworth, owner of Brea Dental Group, has been in practice for more than 40 years. His practice offers cosmetic dentistry solutions such as minimally invasive porcelain veneers and prepless veneers.

The Lumineers training focused on prepless veneers, a revolutionary new technique that requires no shots, no drilling and no removal of patient's enamel. Prepless veneers can be placed in one single visit and are about half the cost of traditional porcelain veneers.

Dr. Whitworth said the benefit of no-prep veneers is that patients get a smile preview before committing to any treatment. If patients do not like the smile preview, they can decline treatment without being charged. Once the patients approve the veneers, the thin and durable veneers are bonded to the teeth.

This treatment for prepless veneers is much different than porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers require dentists to remove a portion of the patient's enamel. Once enamel is removed, it cannot be replaced.

Dr. Whitworth works with every patient to select the right cosmetic solution that will repair their smile and boost their confidence.

"We attended the training to learn more about this incredible new technology and philosophy of placing veneers," the Brea dentist said. "By furthering our education, we can find the right treatment for almost any patient looking to improve their smile."

The Brea Dental Group team is skilled in placing dental implants for patients with missing teeth. Dental implants function much like natural teeth and give patients an increased chewing ability over removable dentures. Brea Dental Group places single dental implants, mini dental implants and All on 4 dental implants for patients missing entire arches of teeth.

In addition to implants, Brea Dental Group, 503 East Imperial Highway, provides general dentistry services, full mouth reconstruction, orthodontics, cosmetic treatments, periodontal treatments and endodontic services. Individual treatments include no-prep veneers, minimally invasive porcelain veneers, in-office whitening treatment, crowns, bridges, sleep apnea treatment and laser gum surgery.

Brea Dental Group offers both braces and Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to adjust teeth, making the treatment virtually undetectable. With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires, and patients are asked to change their aligners -- which resemble a clear mouthguard -- about once every two weeks.

Brea Dental Group is in a stand-alone, state-of-the-art facility with 11 operatories with the latest technology in dentistry. The office includes computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), which assists in mapping out prosthodontic treatment; hard- and soft-tissue lasers; and digital X-rays.

Dr. Whitworth started his own practice in 2003 and has more than 40 years of experience. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Northwestern University in Chicago in 1972. He is certified in laser use by both the Academy of Laser Dentistry and the World Clinical Laser Institute. He also is authorized to administer oral conscious sedation.
