What Are No-Prep Dental Veneers?
No-prep dental veneers are also known as “Lumineers.” If you’re wondering what makes them so special, it’s that these small, thin layers covering are placed over your natural teeth without having to reduce your tooth enamel. You might be saying, “Okay, that’s great, but why is that important?”
The answer is that for patients looking for a non-surgical, less invasive cosmetic procedure, no-prep veneers are a viable solution to achieving a beautiful smile.
Your cosmetic dentist in Norwalk will first begin by going over your goals and what you hope no-prep veneers will do for your appearance. You’ll discuss everything from the look, style, color, and size of your new smile.
After taking impressions of your teeth, we will send them off to a dental lab where technicians will begin working on your customized veneers. Once they’re ready, you’ll return to have them placed.
Along with you, we will review the custom creations, making you are happy with the results before we begin bonding them to your teeth. Using a mild acidic solution to clean your teeth, we will then begin the process of carefully laying each veneer on top of the surface of your teeth. We will then use a curing light to ensure the bonding agent adheres correctly.
What Do No-Prep Veneers Fix?
Just like traditional porcelain veneers, no-prep dental veneers can fix a variety of cosmetic problems, including:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Minor gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Add length to short or “stubby” smiles
- Correct the shape of a tooth
- Cover stains or discoloration
How Long Will They Last?
As with any type of veneer, they are not meant to last forever; however, your no-prep veneers can last decades with proper care. One of the great benefits to this type of cosmetic treatment is they are easy to replace should one become damaged. Also, they are reversible should you ever decide to go back to your original smile.
There are ways you can keep your veneers lasting longer, though. Here’s how:
- Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes, and floss at least once a day
- Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash
- Keep your regular dental appointments every six months
- Wear a mouthguard if you engage in sports or suffer from Bruxism
- Limit your consumption of hard foods to prevent breakage or damage
