No Shot Veneers
Cosmetic Dentistry - Veneers

No-shot, no-prep veneers offer patients the chance to improve their smiles without the removal of tooth structure. The procedure is more reversible since the natural teeth are left undisturbed. In most cases, the procedure can be done without numbing!

Not all people are candidates for prepless veneers, but they do offer an exciting alternative. The best candidates for these veneers are those who have worn down their natural tooth structure; have small teeth; have had teeth extracted for orthodontic reasons when they were young; or someone whose teeth simply need more presence. When prepless veneers are done on patients who really aren’t proper candidates, the results can appear bulky or buck-toothed.

No-Prep Veneers

No-Prep Veneers are the perfect solution to cover stained, discolored or chipped teeth, or as a way to fill in spaces between your teeth. Measuring just 0.3 mm, these ultra-thin Vivaneers will give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of without any shots, drilling or pain.

Custom-made to fit your mouth, each veneer is delicately crafted to exhibit a beautiful, lifelike look. Whether replacing multiple teeth or a few, take comfort in knowing that each tooth will blend naturally with your surrounding teeth.

No-Prep Veneers are different from traditional veneers in that traditional veneers require shots to numb the mouth as existing teeth are shaved down with a drill. This means traditional veneers are not reversible because once tooth structure is drilled away you will forever rely on dental ceramic restorations. No-Prep Veneers, on the other hand, are placed on top of your existing teeth; if you decide to remove them, your dentist can do so with relative ease.

Coventional Veneers
Cosmetic Dentistry - Veneers

In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

When using veneers, the teeth's appearance can be changed with minimal tooth preparation (e.g. drilling). Many veneer procedures can be done with the use of little or no local anesthetic. Traditionally, a reduction of approximately 0.5 mm is required for a porcelain veneer. Composite veneers are becoming more popular as they are easy to repair, whereas porcelain veneers have potential to fracture. It can be very difficult to match the shade of an individual veneer to the remaining teeth, hence placing several veneers is common.

There are some veneers which do not require any drilling in order to remove tooth structure. Instead, these veneers are constructed to be placed on top of teeth. As a result, treatment is less invasive and may be less time-consuming. On the other hand, since the teeth are not reduced in size the veneers may appear too large or bulky unless the material used is extremely thin. Therefore, the success for these veneers is best when limited to specific cases.

Veneers may be used cosmetically to resurface teeth such as to make them appear straighter and possess a more aesthetically pleasing alignment. This may be a quick way to improve the appearance of malposed teeth without need to use orthodontics. However, the amount of malposition of teeth may be such that veneers alone may not be enough to correct them. Instead, orthodontics would need to be used, or orthodontics combined with veneers. The dentist who places veneers must be careful since veneers could increase the thickness of the front face of the teeth. If the teeth are too thick on the face they may appear to stand out and push out the lips. The effect may be enough to give the patient a full or donkey appearance when the lips are closed. Veneers must also be created such that the patient bites into them with minimal force. Otherwise, they may chip off. Patients whose lower jaw protrudes out farther than their upper jaw (known as a class III bite) may not benefit from veneers because the teeth of the lower jaw may bite into the teeth of the upper jaw such as to dislodge the veneers.
