No Prep Veneers vs Porcelain Veneers

Like porcelain veneers, no prep veneers work in a similar fashion in so far as they are placed over your natural teeth.

Unlike porcelain veneers, no prep veneers are ultra-thin and do not require preparation for the tooth coloured shells to be bonded to your teeth.

The big difference between porcelain veneers and no prep veneers is that there is no need to shave the tooth enamel down for the veneer to fit.

Your Initial Consultation

At your initial consultation your cosmetic dentist will discuss all the options you have to achieve a beautiful smile.

A fully costed treatment plan will be provided - or several plans if there is more than one option.

Photographs will be taken so the digital smile design process can begin so you can get to see how your smile can look before any treatment is started.

Often moulds or scans of your teeth will be taken so a protype of your veneers can be fabricated.

Maintenance

No Prep veneers are maintained just like your own teeth. 

At home regular brushing and flossing is essential.

Frequent visits to your hygienist and dentist are also very important.

The better you care for your veneers the longer they will last.

Process
Process

Process

After your cosmetic dentist decides you are suitable for non prep veneers the planning and design begins!

A Digital Smile Design is created after discussions between you and the dentist on how you'd like your smile to be.

Once the Digital Smile Design is approved then a 3D prototype of your veneers are made. These will be tried in so you can see what your veneers could look like.

Once you are happy with the design then a scan is taken of your teeth and is sent to the lab to have your veneers made. A couple of weeks later you will return to have the Veneers bonded.

No drilling or injections required.
