What Are No-Prep Veneers?

Are you looking for a natural way to restore your smile?  No-prep veneers can give you a wonderful smile makeover.  Although traditional veneers remain popular, more people are choosing no-prep veneers to achieve the attractive, uniform smile they desire.  But what are no-prep veneers?

What Are No-Prep Veneers?

Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance.  They are used to mask cosmetic concerns such as chips, stains, or gaps.   Veneers can be put on all the teeth or just a couple of teeth, it depends on the specific needs of the patient.

Unlike traditional veneers that require the removal of a thin layer of the enamel to allow the veneer to better bond to the tooth, no-prep veneers can adhere to the tooth without any extensive preparation.  

No-prep veneers can be created using ceramic material.  

Benefits of No-Prep Veneers

No-prep veneers blend naturally with the tooth.  Traditional veneers can make the tooth look or feel bulky, but no-prep veneers are thinner than traditional veneers, so they look and feel completely natural.  

No-prep veneers can usually be bonded to the tooth without having to file down the enamel.  Since there is little to no alteration made to the tooth, no-prep veneers can be removed if necessary without the need for tooth restoration to return the tooth to its original state.

Getting no-prep veneers is a simple, comfortable procedure that can be done without the need for local anesthesia.
