TYPES OF DENTAL VENEERS TECHNIQUES
What is Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are placed over a damaged, misaligned, or stained tooth to conceal cosmetic issues and create a new appearance. They are one of the most effective and aesthetically gratifying remedies for teeth that are chipped, cracked, gapped, stained, misshaped, or even misaligned—often being incorporated in smile makeovers to create gorgeous smile transformations.
1. PREPLESS OR NO PREP PORCELAIN VENEERS
Prepless veneers is that they are a very conservative form of cosmetic dentistry that typically requires little to no reduction of the original tooth before placement. In fact, prepless veneers are typically considered a painless or pain-free procedure – in most cases, you may not even need a dental anaesthetic during treatment. It is a great options for patients with extreme fear or anxiety.…They can be an excellent way to quickly transform your smile, but they will not be right for every type of smile transformation. The best way to find out if are for you is to come in for a complimentary cosmetic consultation
2. STANDARD OR PREPARED PORCELAIN VENEERS
This type of Porcelain Veneer involves preparation or reductions of about 0.5 mm on the front surface of the tooth.
If offers the following advantages compared with Prepless Veneer
– More translucent than other veneers. That means light will be able to enter into and reflect back out of them in a fashion that truly mimics the lustrous look of a natural tooth.…– Stronger than other veneers and can be used to lengthen teeth
– Maintain a consistent color even in a different light
– Also, a thicker laminate generally offers the dental ceramist more opportunity to incorporate characterization and shading qualities into the veneer itself by way of using different shades of porcelain in its fabrication. This characterizations effect makes the standard Porcelain Veneer more natural looking.
Which type is right for you?
Prepless (NO Prep) or Prepped (traditional) Porcelain Veneers?
Prepless (NO Prep) or Prepped (traditional) Porcelain Veneers are capable of transforming the appearance of your smile. However, there are a few key differences between these procedures that all candidates should know.
Both veneer types offer the following benefits:…
– A more attractive smile while preserving healthy teeth.
– A more uniform smile in terms of tooth colour and shape
To obtain no- or minimal-prep veneers, your tooth enamel needs to be in good, healthy shape. They’re also best suited for people with small or worn teeth, narrow smiles (the side teeth can’t be seen from the front), or slightly stained or misshapen teeth.
Patients who prefer a monochromatic, very white bleached teeth, are also good candidates for Prepless/No Prep veneers. However, the ease and pain-free advantage that no-drilling/no-shots technique offers simply outweighs the disadvantage of a less than perfectly natural-looking outcome.
For all other complex cosmetic cases, Prepped or the traditional Veneers, is the best suitable option. During your initial consultation, Dr. Castro will discuss all of your porcelain veneers options with you in more detail and determine which method best fits your needs.
