Traditional VS. No-Prep
Though both traditional and no-grind veneers are formulated to provide optimal cosmetic results, traditional veneers require the removal of some of the tooth’s enamel. This can affect the health of your teeth and gums. With no-grind veneers, no removal of the enamel or use of anesthesia is required, making it a more comfortable, quicker treatment option. You will also not need to wear temporary veneers while your custom no-grind veneers are being created. Additionally, no-grind veneers are extremely thin in order to be comfortable and not add extra bulk to your teeth.
What Are The Benefits of No-Prep Veneers?
No-prep veneers are a fantastic choice for men and women who want to obtain a radiant smile and address outstanding oral health issues. Veneers installed by our Houston, TX dentists come with many outstanding and convenient benefits, including:
- Faster installation than with comparable porcelain veneers
- Temporary restorations are not required

- Consultation and installation can be done on the same day

No-Prep Veneers Reviews
"I have been seeing Dr. Davis for many years and I always had the best of care. My veneers look as good today as when they were completed many tears ago. Recently, I had the opportunity to have an appointment with Dr. Matt Guerre. I was very impressed with him personally and with his technical expertise too! Congratulations to Dr. Davis for attracting such a fine professional to his practice. I am confident that Dr. Guerre will contribute to the continued success of Cosmetic Dental Associates."- L.A. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2019
"I have been going to Dr. Davis for cleanings, crowns and fillings for over 25 years now. He and his team have always been attentive and helpful. The work they do is top notch all the way. Recently I decided to do something about the terrible look of my teeth. They have always had a naturally dark color. That coupled with the wine and coffee I drink just made them look awful. I have been embarrassed and ashamed of my choppers for years. My wife said she married me anyway. My girls say they looked rotten. I finally asked Dr. Davis to help me. The solution he suggested was veneers. They were ready a few weeks after I decided on the desired color and shape. He did a little prep and glued them on. Presto changeo! Wow!! I can now smile and be proud. My daughters showered me with complements. My wife loves them. I feel like a new man. Funny how something like teeth can impact a persons confidence so much. I'm glad I did it and I am appreciative to Dr. Davis and his team for helping me."- V.L. / Google / Feb 29, 2020
"Dr. Davis and Matt are the best in the game! I haven’t been to see them in years because I moved to LA. I’ve been stuck in Houston because of Covid and had some problems with my bite. I called and they booked me the same day with Matt. I usually see Dr. Davis but I took a chance on Matt. He took the time to hear my gripes and carefully explained his assessment in laymans terms. 5-10 min later my problem was fixed. I always think of Dr. Davis when being complimented about my smile, which is on a pretty frequent basis. (pursuing acting in LA so my smile is used daily). Years ago before I moved, I had had braces twice by another orthodontist but for some reason I was still not happy with my smile. I was looking into veneers when I decided to go see Cosmetic Dental Associates. I remember walking into the office thinking this would cost me or at the time my father a small fortune. They quickly got me into a chair and after showing Dr. Davis a couple of pictures of what I thought my smile should look like he explained my teeth were perfectly straight and just needed to be manicured a smidge to give them a more symmetrical appearance. I thought It would hurt, I’d have to schedule another appointment and still a small fortune. He calmly explained he could do it right there within seconds. At this point I had enough trust in him that he knew what he was doing. Without asking the price I just said "go ahead". Within less than 2 min I could already see my smile was adjusted perfectly. As I thanked him and walked out I was surprise that the cost was no more than just a regular visit. I was prepared to write more on a blank check but I think he def. had my best interest and could see I just needed small adjustments. I’m forever appreciative, as people I meet and run into over the years tell me I have a million dollar smile. The office is very attentive, professional, and a great aura to be around."- M.G. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2020

Coming from England I have never had the greatest teeth but without veneers and braces and being considerate of my budget , Doc Spiker has given me my most beautiful version of myself , making my own natural teeth look amazing ! The staff is so friendly and they are the same great staff who was working for him 20 years ago when I first walked through their doors !! To me , this speaks volumes as to how the Doc runs his practice !!! Over the years I have had everything from fillings and teeth cleanings to bonding and whitening and straightening done here ! I would never go anywhere else ! Doc Spiker is the ‘Wizard Of Oz ‘ of everything to do with beautiful healthy teeth !

Am I a good candidate for no-prep veneers?
No-prep veneers may be used to rapidly cover chips and stains on your teeth, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly spaced or shaped. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, your cosmetic veneers will be custom created to fit comfortably over your teeth for an appealing and natural look, without some of the damage to your underlying bone structure as traditional veneers. During your consultation, Dr. Davis will listen to your objectives and expectations so he can personalize your procedure. Dr. Davis will also determine if you're a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by assessing your overall oral health. You shouldn't have signs of periodontal disease, or habitually clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).
how do no-prep veneers work?
Prior to the placement of your no-grind veneers, a member of our dental team will take digital impressions of your teeth. This allows for a customized fit to your veneers, allowing them to match your surrounding teeth. Once they are ready, your no-grind veneers will be bonded directly onto your teeth. Typically, no anesthesia is required for this procedure. The veneers will then be adjusted and buffed for an optimal fit and shine. The results will be immediate for you to experience your newly restored, luminous smile.
How do you care for No-prep veneers?
Following the placement of your no-grind veneers, it is important that you continue to maintain an optimal at-home oral care routine with regular brushing and flossing. During your annual visits to Cosmetic Dental Associates, we will be able to evaluate the wear of your veneers and make any necessary adjustments or advise you if a veneer needs to be replaced.
