TYPES OF DENTAL VENEERS TECHNIQUES
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.

ANTI AGING DENTAL FACELIFT WITH VENEERS
As we get older, the changes in our body and appearance can be disheartening. While we may have gained confidence in many areas, such as our career and personal relationships, our confidence in how we look may have changed.

Remembering your youth and how you used to look and how your face has changed can be detrimental to your confidence.
What is anti-aging dentistry?
Anti-aging dentistry covers all types of procedures which are typically for cosmetic reasons. Being able to change your jaw’s appearance or make your lips look fuller and even get rid of fine lines around your mouth through simple dental procedures may seem like a farce, but the reality is that anti-aging dentistry can and is improving the lives of many people who want to maintain their youthful appearance.…Porcelain veneers: Applying porcelain veneers is a very common procedure in anti-aging dentistry, as it can do several things to help improve teeth and provide patients with a more youthful experience. These are some of the ways porcelain veneers can help:
To provide you with whiter teeth. Some people’s teeth may be too stained due to mistreatment for teeth whitening to work or the procedure is too painful due to extensive dental work, so an alternative option for achieving a white smile once again is to get porcelain veneers on the teeth that show up in your smile.
To provide with you with fuller lips. Most people lose the fullness in their lips with age due to the decline in the body’s ability to produce collagen. Fuller lips help people to have a more youthful appearance. Porcelain veneers cover your natural teeth and because of the slight increase in your teeth can provide your lips with a plumper appearance which while isn’t dramatic, can be enough to give a more youthful look to your face.
To fix your chipped or damaged teeth. Some people don’t actually look as old as they are and may have a rather youthful face but they don’t look as young as they could due to damaged or chipped teeth. At Vogue Smiles Melbourne, we can provide you with the non-invasive procedure of applying porcelain veneer to cover the damaged teeth and improve your appearance.To help diminish wrinkles and lines. As an experienced dentist, Dr. Castro can apply porcelain veneers in your mouth to provide you with a fuller smile and as he expertly places them to improve your bite, you can see lines diminish.
Even out your smile. Some people have teeth of different sizes. While sometimes a lopsided smile can be due to a problem with your bite, at other times it’s because the teeth on one side of your smile are shorter than the ones on the other side. Porcelain veneers can make all of your teeth an even length which will give you that full and even smile that is so attractive.
