With custom no-prep veneers, you could be enjoying the smile results you have always dreamed of in no time. No-prep veneers are a noninvasive procedure that delivers fantastic results without altering or removing any of the underlying tooth structure. Cosmetic dentists Dr. Matt Guerre and Dr. Spiker Davis are pleased to present the following information on the benefits of choosing no-grind/no-prep dental veneer to transform your grin and enhance your cosmetic appearance.
Explore the Many Benefits of Veneers
Dental veneers are a highly popular method for quickly making over the front teeth and bringing balance, brilliance, and beauty to the smile. Placed on teeth that are visible when you smile, veneers are shell-like, thin restorations made of either high-quality ceramic or composite materials that are custom-designed to meet individual smile goals. When taken care of properly, veneers can last for up to 10 years or longer. No-prep veneers from our Houston, TX cosmetic dentists can effectively transform the look of teeth that are affected by:
• Dull, stained, or yellow enamel
• An aging smile
• Chips or cracks
• Worn, jagged, or uneven edges
• Small gaps between teeth
• Minor crowding or misalignment
• Irregular, small, short, or narrow shape
The No-Prep Veneers Process
During a smile consultation, Dr. Guerre and Dr. Davis evaluate cosmetic needs and present the options best-suited for achieving desired smile results. Patients seeking no-prep veneers in Houston, TX love the fact that this comfortable procedure is usually performed without the need for anesthetics, drilling, or removal of enamel. Composite or ceramic materials may be used to create custom no-prep veneers, depending upon cosmetic goals, budget, and treatment expectations. Physical or digital impressions of the teeth may also be taken during the consultation visit to allow for the creation of custom dental veneers. While the process is similar, the procedures for placing veneers made of composite and ceramic do vary to some degree.
No-Prep Chairside Veneers
Composite laminate veneers are created chairside within a single visit to Cosmetic Dental Associates. To prepare the teeth for chairside veneers, our team will apply a special cleansing solution that helps the composite material better adhere to the teeth. The ideal shade of composite will be selected based on the color of your tooth enamel and your desired results and the material will be applied in layers to cover the front surfaces of the affected teeth. Once the material is cured (hardened) to the teeth by our special dental light, Dr. Guerre or Dr. Davis will shape, contour, and polish the composite veneers for a natural, highly aesthetic appearance.
No-Prep Ceramic Veneers
Since ceramic veneers are created in a special dental lab, these cosmetic restorations typically require a second office visit following your smile consultation. Our lab will create your ceramic veneers based on your oral impressions and specific instructions provided by our talented cosmetic dentists. On the day of your placement procedure, your teeth will be primed with a special solution to clean the teeth of any plaque or surface debris. Using a high-tech, strong bonding agent, our dentists will position and adhere your no-prep veneers to your teeth and make any necessary adjustments for a radiant, gorgeous smile.
How No-Prep Veneers Compare to Traditional Veneers
Both no-prep and traditional porcelain veneers are customized to improve the quality, attractiveness, and overall look of the smile. But while no-grind/no-prep veneers preserve the integrity of the underlying tooth structure, traditional veneers do require the removal of a small amount of enamel to ensure a proper, even fit. No-grind/no-prep veneers are thinner than porcelain veneers, allowing them to be placed more quickly and without reduction of the enamel surface. No-prep veneers also allow Houston, TX patients to avoid the need to wear temporary restorations while waiting for their final veneers to be created in the lab. However, traditional veneers also offer a range of cosmetic benefits and may be the better choice in some situations.
Get the Smile of Your Dreams in No Time
No-prep veneers are revered for their ability to address multiple cosmetic flaws while delivering a whiter, straighter, and more attractive smile. These high-end restorations can easily and instantly transform a wide array of smile flaws without the need for removing any tooth structure.
