The tray delivery system lets dentists expertly seat 10 ultra-thin, custom veneers in less than an hour while preserving tooth structure. All of GlamSmile’s features combined — CAD/CAM technology, digital preview for dentists’ evaluation, and full-arch tray delivery system for minimal or no preparation — are a revolution in veneering and have already transformed many smiles around the world.
