No Prep Veneers, also known as minimal preparation veneers, are a cosmetic dentistry solution that can help you achieve your ideal smile. In this treatment, your dentist won’t remove any enamel but may only reduce the outer layer of your tooth to prepare it for bonding.
Minimal preparation is preferred to traditional veneers, as it preserves your natural tooth structure. This also results in less sensitivity and wear on your teeth.
Lumineers are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional dental veneers that requires no tooth preparation. Their thin thickness ranges from 0.3 to 0.5 mm, meaning they require minimal exposure of your natural teeth.
Teeth can be enhanced in color, shape or size through cosmetic dentistry procedures. They may also be employed to reshape or repair chipped or broken teeth.
Staining and discoloration are another common concern for patients seeking a brighter smile. Lumineers can help address this issue too, particularly if tetracycline staining is the culprit.
To prevent staining on your teeth, brush and floss regularly. Additionally, avoid drinking coffee or red wine which may stain or discoloration of the enamel. Smoking also contributes to this problem as smoking causes the stains to worsen over time. Lastly, wear a mouthguard while playing sports or grinding teeth at night as this will protect Lumineers and other parts of your smile from damage.
DURAthin veneers are an innovative way to achieve beautiful smiles that require minimal or no preparation of the tooth structure, preserving natural tooth structure while creating a brighter, straighter and more attractive smile.
Durathin veneers are contact lens-style custom pieces of thin porcelain that adhere to the front surface of your teeth with special cement without grinding or cutting them. This makes them a safe, conservative and reversible treatment option that can be used to conceal crookedness, discoloration and chips.
Durabthin veneers are incredibly strong and can last for many years with proper care, provided you take good care of them. However, like all cosmetic dentistry treatments, DURAthin veneers are vulnerable to damage from behaviors like smoking, biting fingernails or chewing hard foods, clenching or grinding of the jaw and using your teeth for package opening.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain bonded directly onto the front teeth. They’re great for concealing stains, correcting chipped or cracked teeth and filling gaps.
Vivaneers from Glidewell Labs are no-prep veneers that require little or no preparation. At just 0.3mm thick, these veneers offer a more natural aesthetic for patients seeking less intervention.
Vivaneers offer an alternative to traditional dental veneers, which require shots to numb your mouth while your teeth are ground down with a drill. Furthermore, they take less time to install than porcelain veneers without the need for shots or pain medication.
Vivaneers can be utilized when multiple diastema is present, teeth are shorter than expected due to trauma or wear, and the underlying tooth shade is too dark to blend with the veneer. Depending on your shade needs, Vivaneers can be pressed with Prismatik ThinPressTM ceramic ingot for either translucent or opaque shading options.
