This includes cosmetic treatments that can be used to disguise problems or improve the overall look of the teeth and gums. One popular treatment requested by patients in Charlotte, North Carolina, is that of prepless veneers, which can be used on the front teeth to make a cosmetic improvement.
Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
What are prepless veneers?
Prepless veneers are basically the same as traditional cosmetic veneers. Prepless veneers do not require any preparation of the patient’s natural teeth prior to their placement. This means there is no tooth enamel removal or anesthesia used for these veneers. With prepless veneers, Dr. Hahn can create a very thin but strong layer of porcelain on top of your existing teeth. They are bonded with resin composite materials and will last many years with proper care.
What are the benefits of prepless veneers?
Prepless veneers have many advantages over traditional ones:
- Prepless veneers are completely reversible should you ever decide you want to remove or replace them.
- The use of anesthesia is not required because the dentist does not need to remove any tooth enamel to place them, unlike traditional veneers.
- Prepless veneers are less expensive than traditional veneers since they require less preparation of your natural teeth.
- Prepless veneers can be a temporary solution if you are waiting for dental implants or other restorations.
Am I a good candidate for prepless veneers?
If you have chipped or broken teeth and want to improve their appearance without using traditional porcelain veneers, prepless ones may be an excellent option for you. It is essential to discuss all options with Dr. Philip Hahn to find out if this is the treatment that will suit you best.
