Ultra thin conservative Veneers
At Surry Hills Dental Care, we provide a new class of minimally invasive veneers which are often categorized as “no-prep” Veneers. They have exploded in popularity over the past few years thanks to their incredible ability to brighten and repair almost any smile. In particular, porcelain veneers are very popular, since porcelain has an incredibly lifelike appearance and has excellent durability and resistance to staining and wear. However, these new no-prep options represent a promising new solution for patients who wish to avoid the mechanical necessities of traditional veneers. If you are in search of a simple way to rejuvenate your smile, Veneers are a stellar choice.
Typical porcelain veneers are essentially thin casings which are cemented to the outer surfaces of teeth. Because they mask all types of surface stains as well as breaks or chips, they are the perfect way to instantly achieve a brighter smile. The process involves reducing the structure of the tooth. This is necessary in order to accommodate the thickness of the material and cannot be undone. Once the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken which are used by dental technicians to create the set of veneers. While the permanent set is fabricated, temporary material is used to maintain appearance.
No-prep veneers offer all of the same advantages while eliminating much of the preparatory time and work that must be done as well as reducing the need for anaesthetic.
Lumineers are made by Cerinate and are an excellent mix of simple placement and aesthetic results. Unlike traditional options, Lumineers do not require the modification of natural tooth structure or the use of temporary veneers, characteristics which designate them as “no-prep.” In fact, each of your natural teeth remain intact and unchanged beneath Lumineers. For patients who prefer not to physically alter their teeth, these are an excellent choice.
For those who are unhappy with the appearance of the appearance of their teeth, the lifetime value of a brighter smile is hard to calculate. If you feel that you can benefit from one of these no-prep veneer options, talk to your dentist to discover which solution is right for you.
