Dental Restoration With Non-Prep Veneers
Non-Prep Veneers are dental veneers that adhere to the surface of the teeth enamel. They consist of cerinate feldspathic pressable porcelain, which is very thin but strong. Patients can opt for this product when the teeth are healthy but cosmetically flawed to achieve a whiter, more perfect smile.
This treatment is ideal for patients with stained or discolored teeth and restores worn-down or chipped teeth. They can also eliminate spaces and gaps and align crooked teeth. Non-Prep Veneers help brighten smiles that have had no success with professional teeth whitening products.

Benefits of Non-Prep Veneers
According to the Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dentistry Journal, the current trend in restorative dentistry is to choose minimally invasive treatments that leave as much of the teeth intact. A benefit of Non-Prep Veneers is that they require little to no tooth grinding or reduction compared to other methods. These cosmetic coatings are constructed from super-strong, stain-resistant porcelain.
Our team works with patients to color match the coating to their natural teeth to achieve a natural-looking smile. They take less preparation and dental work than traditional veneers and can last a long time. With proper care, Non-Prep Veneers can last from 10 to 20 years. While a great option for many, some patients may need more extensive dental work or thicker veneers that cover their tooth issues. Additionally, patients who grind their teeth, bite their nails, or do not practice good oral hygiene may not benefit from Non-Prep Veneers.

Non-Prep Veneers Treatment Details
The process of fitting Non-Prep Veneers takes about two appointments. Before treatment can occur, we will examine the patient's teeth and discuss their goals and concerns. Once treatment starts, we will take upper and lower impressions of the patient’s teeth and makes molds of the mouth and teeth. Patients then choose the perfect shade they want for their Non-Prep Veneers.
Once we collect the impressions, we will send them to the lab where technicians create the custom Non-Prep Veneers. When the Non-Prep Veneers are ready, the patient will return for a fitting. There is typically no preparation needed for the teeth. The dentist will have the patient try them on to check for fit and then individually bond them to each tooth.

The Effects of Non-Prep Veneers
The placement of Non-Prep Veneers does not involve removing any of the tooth’s healthy structure. Non-Prep Veneers are semipermanent and usually completely reversible. Patients can choose to have their Non-Prep Veneers taken off at any time. If this is the case, we will schedule a consultation to go over the process and desired outcome. Once removed, they usually do not have any effect on the original teeth.
The process of removing Non-Prep Veneers is safe and effective. However, there is always a risk for damage when any type of veneer is removed from teeth. Due to this, we will need to ensure the patient’s teeth and overall oral health are in proper shape for the procedure. We will also take the necessary precautions to ensure the patient’s safety during this treatment.

“Non-Prep Veneers are much thinner than traditional veneers, making them feel lighter and more natural.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much do Non-Prep Veneers cost?
A. The cost of Non-Prep Veneers depends on many different factors. The cost will vary depending on how many teeth receive treatment, the size of teeth, and the patient’s oral health. People interested in Non-Prep Veneers should have a consultation with our team for more information.
Q. Do Non-Prep Veneers need replacement?
A. This procedure is a semipermanent cosmetic tooth restoration. Non-Prep Veneers can last up to 20 years. Despite being thinner, the cerinate porcelain is stronger and more durable than traditional veneers.
Q. Do I need to change how I eat with Non-Prep Veneers?
A. After adjusting to Non-Prep Veneers for a few days, most patients return to their normal eating routine. Patients do not need to switch to a special diet or change their lifestyle. They should avoid using their teeth to bite down on hard objects or foods that cause cracked teeth.
Q. How do I take care of my teeth with Non-Prep Veneers?
A. Taking care of the teeth after getting these veneers is simple. Be sure to make regular appointments twice a year with a dental provider for cleanings and exams. Patients should also practice healthy brushing and flossing habits twice a day.
Q. Can my Non-Prep Veneers be stained?
A. Though the porcelain used in these veneers is stain-resistant, it is still possible for them to stain. Smoking may lead to some staining. Additionally, dental providers who use standard teeth cleaning products may inadvertently stain the veneers, so patients should return to the provider who placed the Non-Prep Veneers for cleanings.
