What’s the Difference Between Traditional And Prepless Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers NashvilleMany cosmetic dentistry patients in Nashville wish they could just cover up their old, stained cracked or uneven teeth. Fortunately, dental veneers do exactly that! In order to see which type of dental veneers would be best for your smile makeover, consider the following options: traditional veneers and prepless veneers.

Traditional Porcelain Veneers

These extremely thin cosmetic veneers are semi-translucent and bond permanently to the front of your tooth. Porcelain is a favorite material for veneers because of its color and translucency. In addition to looking like your natural teeth, this material is the most compatible when used with gum tissue. Porcelain also resists staining, helping to keep your smile bright and white.

Before placing traditional porcelain veneers, your Nashville cosmetic dentist will assess your current smile and make sure the shape and size of your new veneers flawlessly match the look of your natural teeth. The process will usually take two visits. One to evaluate your dental needs and then a second trip to permanently place the traditional veneers once the dental lab crafts them. In order to give the best appearance, some teeth may require some preparation to make room for the layer of porcelain.

Prepless DURAthin Veneers

Prepless DURAthin veneers provide the same aesthetic and functional benefits that porcelain veneers do. They are a good option for Nashville area patients who want veneers but are hesitant to file down healthy tooth enamel. Prepless veneers appeal to many patients because the procedure can be reversed. If you choose in the future to have your prepless veneers removed, your natural teeth will look like they used to before DURAthin veneers.

When considering these two options remember that, as with any dental restoration, they will last longer if you maintain good oral hygiene. In order to schedule a cosmetic dental consultation with Dr. Dennis Wells, call us today!
