What’s the Difference Between Traditional and Prepless Veneers?
Patients visiting our Cincinnati family dentist often hope to rejuvenate their smiles without altering the natural structure of their teeth. Hardin Advanced Dentistry can beautifully conceal your discolored, uneven or cracked teeth through the implementation of either traditional or prepless veneers.
Which option is best for you: traditional veneers or prepless veneers? Here are a few thoughts to consider when scheduling your consultation with Dr. Tara or Dr. Gary:
These remarkably thin cosmetic veneers bond permanently to the front of your teeth. Porcelain is the preferred material for veneers due to its adaptability and translucency. While maintaining a natural appearance, porcelain is also highly compatible with gum tissue and effectively resists staining, ensuring a long-lasting, bright smile.
Before the placement of traditional porcelain veneers, your Cincinnati family dentist will inspect your current smile and work to flawlessly match the shape and size of your new veneers to the look of your natural teeth. This process usually takes just two appointments. The first visit is dedicated to evaluating your dental needs. Then, once the dental lab has crafted them, we permanently place the veneers on your teeth. Some teeth may require additional preparation for the layer of porcelain.
Prepless veneers offer functional and aesthetic benefits similar to those of traditional porcelain veneers. Durathin veneers are an ideal option for patients who want veneers but are hesitant to file down healthy tooth enamel. These veneers are widely popular because of the ability to reverse the procedure. If you decide to have your prepless veneers removed at any time following the initial application, your natural teeth will look just like they did before DURAthin veneers.
