Are No-Grind/No-Prep Veneers Your Path to a Fantastic Smile?

Are you self-conscious about your teeth? Veneers have increased in popularity over the last few years because of their incredible ability to repair nearly any smile. In particular, no-grind, no-prep veneers have been making a big impact on people’s lives while conserving as much of the teeth’s enamel as possible. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we offer this life-changing treatment so patients can see immediate results. 


While naturally perfect teeth are rare, no-prep veneers can hide small irregularities to enhance your smile. This includes teeth that are slightly chipped, discolored, or misaligned. No-prep veneers can make your teeth appear whiter and straighter so you have the confidence to show them off. Dr. Spiker Davis and Dr. Matt Guerre of Cosmetic Dental Associates provide amazing aesthetic results for their patients. Veneers instantly transform the teeth in the smile zone to make them look youthful and more radiant. Reach out to our facility in Houston, TX, today to schedule a smile consultation. 


Candidates for no-prep veneers 

Veneers are thin, shell-like restorations made of top-quality ceramic or composite materials to create a balanced smile. The skilled dentists at Cosmetic Dental Associates can perform this procedure without altering or removing the underlying structure of the teeth. After an evaluation, Dr. Davis or Dr. Guerre may take physical or digital impressions of the teeth to create the dental veneers. We will always offer options best-suited to your smile. 


With personalized no-prep veneers, you can achieve real results without orthodontics or extensive dental work. Did you know that most people are actually excellent candidates for veneers? Good candidates have healthy teeth without decay or cavities – if these issues are present, they will need to be resolved before getting cosmetic treatment. No-prep veneers are a wonderful option for individuals who want to improve: 


  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Unusually shaped or small teeth
  • Chipped or worn-down teeth
  • Teeth with small spaces or gaps 
  • Stained or discolored teeth 
  • Other small aesthetic issues


The process of getting traditional porcelain veneers can be an uncomfortable procedure, since the dentist removes your enamel to make room for the restoration. No-grind/no-prep veneers are designed to be ultra-thin, similar to a contact lens, so they can be applied seamlessly and naturally over the teeth. This procedure is completely noninvasive and does not require an anesthetic. Best of all, patients feel minimal discomfort with reduced healing time. When cared for properly, these restorations can last up to 10 years or longer. 


No-prep chairside and ceramic veneers

For men and women in Houston, TX, veneers are an increasingly accepted way to transform your smile with more confidence and beauty. If you have small flaws or smile concerns you would like to address, veneers are the ideal solution. We invite you to explore no-prep chairside and ceramic veneers to achieve your dream smile. 


Chairside composite laminate veneers are created during just one visit to Cosmetic Dental Associates. To prepare, Dr. Davis or Dr. Guerre will apply a cleansing solution so the composite material adheres securely to the teeth. The shade is selected based on your tooth enamel and desired results. We will cure or harden the material to the teeth with a special dental light, then make adjustments as necessary. Patients should know that while chairside composite veneers are more cost-effective, they are also more porous, and thus subject to staining or chipping. 


Ceramic veneers, on the other hand, are made in a dental laboratory, which means they require a second visit following your consultation. The lab creates ceramic veneers based on oral impressions taken from your teeth as well as the instructions provided by our talented team. Dr. Davis or Dr. Guerre will also ensure the coloring and shade is well-suited to your teeth. On the day of placement, we will prime your teeth with a solution to clean the surface. We then use a strong bonding agent to adhere the no-prep veneers to your smile.

Removing enamel can ultimately affect your oral health, making the teeth and gums more susceptible to oral disease. No-grind/no-prep veneers are thinner than traditional porcelain veneers, allowing them to be placed on your teeth more quickly and without the need for temporary restorations. They are a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your smile with very little preparation. Additionally, these veneers are completely comfortable and do not add any extra bulk to your smile. 


Cosmetic dentists Dr. Spiker Davis and Dr. Matt Guerre are experts in providing exceptional results for their patients. Another reason so many people choose Cosmetic Dental Associates is that we can help fit your cosmetic investment into your lifestyle. We offer easy financing options so you can achieve the smile you want in an affordable way. During your regular appointments with Cosmetic Dental Associates, we will continue to assess the health of your veneers and make adjustments as needed.
