  • Many patients who need cosmetic dental work wish to hide their old, discolored, chipped, or crooked teeth. Luckily, dental veneers do precisely that. It’s also a recommended option if your teeth are cracked, broken, slightly crowded, or have spaces between them. Unlike dental crowns, veneers do not cover your entire tooth but only the front surface. A layer of material is put over your teeth to protect it from surface damage.


    Porcelain Veneers vs. Prepless Veneers

    Traditional porcelain veneers are known for their extraordinary versatility in addressing a myriad of minor cosmetic dentistry issues. However, to evade a strange appearance due to the added layer of thickness, a part of your tooth enamel has to be removed permanently to accommodate them. Altering your affected tooth may require veneers or other forms of restoration from then on.


    Fortunately, advancement in this field of cosmetic dentistry has paved the way for the emergence of prepless veneers. It’s a drill-free dental solution that can also radically transform a person’s smile. Prepless veneers use techniques like feathering to taper and blend the layer seamlessly with your tooth. Unlike its regular counterpart, prepless veneers do not involve tooth reduction. Since the procedure will not alter your tooth permanently, you can enjoy a significantly less invasive result.


    Why Opt for Prepless Veneers?

    There are many reasons why prepless veneers could be your best option in keeping your teeth looking and feeling their absolute best. These include the following:


    1. Long-lasting. Prepless porcelain veneers are strong and durable. In fact, they could be as strong, if not stronger than, your natural tooth enamel. Depending on the patient in question and their dental care routine, veneers can last for up to a decade or even longer.


    1. Natural-looking. The incredibly thin pieces of porcelain are meticulously created to match your teeth’s natural color, complementing your face. Each veneer is bonded to each tooth with cement to create a unit that is straight and uniform. If something is not quite right, prepless veneers can be easily remodeled for accurate fit and attractive appearance.


    1. Low Maintenance. Prepless porcelain veneers don’t stain, but they don’t stay clean on their own. Fortunately, usual preventive care is enough to sustain its integrity. These include brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing every day, and scheduling regular checkups as normal.


    1. Minimally Invasive. Any dental veneer treatment aims to eliminate as little natural tooth structure as possible to fit the veneer. Several factors could impact the preparation of your teeth for the procedure. These include the position of your teeth as well as their condition. Nevertheless, qualifying for a prepless veneer should be minimal. A little bit of sanding and contouring is all that shall occur to prep your mouth for the transformation.


    Prepless veneers are undeniably one of the excellent procedures to rejuvenate your smile without altering your teeth’s natural structure. It offers the same benefits that traditional veneers have without tooth reduction.
