Prepless Veneers Q & A

What are prepless veneers?

Veneers are one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry to improve the look of your smile. They’re thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently affixed to the front of your teeth, and they upgrade your smile by covering up cosmetic imperfections in a non-invasive way to the tooth. 

Brite Smiles Dental Care offers all-porcelain veneers, which have color and translucency similar to your natural tooth enamel, meaning your enhanced smile will look as beautiful as it does naturally.

What conditions do veneers treat?

Veneers cover up the entire front-facing portion of your tooth, effectively masking:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Stains that don’t respond to professional whitening treatments
  • Worn down teeth

Veneers can also make your smile more uniform by correcting:

  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Veneers are also occasionally used for non-cosmetic purposes, like reinforcing a tooth to protect it from further damage.

What are the benefits of veneers?

As a restorative procedure, veneers have a number of benefits:

  • Add beauty to your smile
  • Are a very fast enhancement to your appearance
  • Won’t irritate your gum tissue
  • Are stain-resistant

As a relatively conservative treatment, veneers don’t require you to remove much enamel from your teeth.

What is the process of getting veneers?

Your journey toward a more beautiful smile with veneers begins with a consultation at Brite Smiles Dental Care. You discuss your cosmetic goals and the details of your dream smile with Dr. Simmons or Dr. Edstrom, and they help you settle on the size, shape, and color of your veneers that best complements your face and enhances your features.

Next, your dentist adjusts the enamel on the front-facing portion of your teeth. They take an impression of your mouth, then send it off to a lab that designs and fabricates your veneers to fit comfortably on your teeth and blend in beautifully with your smile. 

You wear a set of temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab, at which point you go back to the office to have them permanently bonded to your teeth. 

You leave the office with a beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to share for years to come! Schedule a consultation to see if veneers are right for you.
