No Prep Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers are well known as a fantastic solution for a variety of cosmetic dental issues and can transform the appearance of your smile in just two visits to our offices. With conventional porcelain veneers, it is necessary to prepare the affected tooth so that the veneer can be placed. However, not every patient is happy about the preparatory process or the fact that it permanently removes some of the natural enamel of the teeth. The good news is that there is an alternative that eliminates these concerns whilst still offering patients all of the benefits of porcelain veneers. This solution is no-prep porcelain veneers.

What are no-prep porcelain veneers?
No-prep porcelain veneers are exactly what their name suggests that they are – porcelain veneers that can be successfully fitted and produce a great result without the need for any preparatory work and with no permanent effect on the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are super-thin, shell-like covers that are attached to the outer face of the teeth in order to hide imperfections such as chips and stains. They can also be used to add thickness or height to teeth, or to hide any gaps that have been created between them. Each veneer is bespoke, created specifically for the tooth over which it will be placed. Created from high-grade porcelain, it can also be glazed in a color that closely resembles the patient’s natural teeth. This makes the restoration so discreet that it looks and feels like the front of your natural tooth.
To fit a regular porcelain veneer, a small amount of the enamel on the front of the tooth must first be removed. This will enable the veneer to fit flush, plus will prevent the veneer from making the tooth look abnormally thick. This preparatory work is carried out using a local anesthetic, which is necessary since the enamel will be filed away using a handheld piece of equipment. Since enamel cannot regenerate, once the prep work has begun, that tooth will always require a veneer.
No-prep porcelain veneers don’t require any permanent alteration to the underlying tooth structure in order to obtain a secure and natural fit. This means:
No need for anesthetic
No unpleasant filing down of the tooth enamel
Your veneer can be removed with no long-term effect on your natural tooth
