Now you can get a brand new smile without needing to shave down healthy teeth beforehand.
Do you like the idea of dental veneers but not so keen on what it requires? If you aren’t familiar with traditional veneers, these thin porcelain shells go over the front of teeth to cover common dental imperfections that keep you from having the smile you want. The one drawback for many patients who want to get dental veneers is that they don’t like the idea of having healthy enamel shaved down to accommodate their veneers. Luckily, your Fort Worth, TX cosmetic dentist Dr. William Ralstin can now offer the ideal smile without tooth preparation.
What are no-prep veneers?
These ultra-thin shells are made from translucent porcelain and are designed to cover the front portion of your teeth to hide certain disfigurements that might keep you from a healthier-looking smile.
What problems can no-prep veneers hide?
Veneers are a great option for those looking to cover stains, chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, misshapen or malformed teeth, as well as minor crookedness and overlapping.
How are no-prep veneers placed?
What makes no-prep veneers such an ideal treatment for many of our patients is that you can get a quick smile makeover without pain, drilling or needles. Plus, unlike traditional veneers, no-prep veneers don’t require any shaving down of healthy enamel to accommodate your new dental work. The only thing your dentist Dr. Ralstin in Fort Worth, TX will do beforehand is take impressions of your smile.
These impressions will be used to create your veneers. Once the veneers are made, we will use a special adhesive to apply them to the front of your teeth and then use a special laser to harden the adhesive. It’s simple and easy to get an improved smile with no-prep veneers.
What problems can’t no-prep veneers fix?
While this can be a great cosmetic option for many of our patients, it isn’t right for these cases:
- Severely misaligned teeth
- Poorly aligned bites
- Oversized teeth
- Disproportionate facial structure
While veneers may not be right in these instances orthodontics are often the best option for correcting these problems and getting a more even smile. Your Forth Worth, TX dentist Dr. Ralstin can help you determine which treatment is right for you.
