What Are the Benefits of Minimal Prep Veneers
- Posted on: Jul 15 2018
Having the perfect smile is one way to make you that much closer to becoming the next George Clooney— minus Amal of course. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one solution to help fix discolored, misaligned teeth? With dental veneers, we at Gentle Dentistry are able to practically transform your teeth and give you the smile you’ve always wanted with just one procedure. And although we offer traditional porcelain dental veneers at our office, we also have another alternative: minimal prep veneers.
What Are Minimal Prep Veneers?
With traditional dental veneers, we have to sand down your natural teeth to make room for the veneers. Once they have been sanded down, we then adhere a porcelain veneer to the top of your teeth to give you a new smile. And although that method is effective, it’s not always necessary; that’s where minimal prep veneers come into play.
Minimal prep veneers, like lumineers, use the same concept as traditional veneers but there is virtually no prep necessary— meaning your natural teeth don’t need to be sanded down at all.
What Are the Benefits?
As previously mentioned, one of the unique benefits of minimal prep veneers is that there is hardly any preparation necessary. Another benefit? They are so thin that they don’t feel heavy or foreign in your mouth— making them easier to adjust to. Plus, because they are still a form of dental veneers, they can transform your mouth in practically the same way as traditional veneers.
If minimal prep veneers sound like your idea of something worth smiling about, then it’s time for you to schedule a consultation at our Tampa office today. During your initial appointment, we will conduct a brief exam and then discuss all of your options. Call us today at 813-922-3093.
