Prepless Veneers – Midlothian, TX

Minimal Modifications, Maximum Results

Veneers are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic dental treatments . However, traditional veneers require that some tooth enamel be removed. For that reason, some patients hesitate to commit to them. The good news is that there is a more conservative alternative. Prepless veneers, also known as minimal-prep veneers or no-prep veneers, require minimal modifications to the tooth enamel yet are still able to produce maximum results. Read this page to learn more about prepless veneers, and call us when you want to book a consultation with our Midlothian dental team.

Prepless Veneers FAQs

Can I Eat Normally with Prepless Veneers?

Yes, you don’t need to worry about switching up your diet when you get prepless veneers. This is because prepless veneers are very strong and durable, so they allow you to enjoy a wide range of foods without issue. However, it is a good idea to avoid biting down or chewing on particularly hard objects, like ice or non-food items, to lower your risk of potentially damaging them.

Can Prepless Veneers Stain?

Prepless veneers are stain-resistant, so they are very unlikely to stain. Ultimately, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about what you are eating and drinking once you maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine. Just keep in mind that your prepless veneers are not strain-proof, so excessive consumption of pigmented foods and smoking tobacco products can cause discoloration over time. The key is to only drink coffee, red wine, and other dark-colored items in moderation.

Do Prepless Veneers Break Easily?

When prepless veneers are made and placed properly, it is extremely rare for them to break. All veneers must be of a minimum thickness to avoid breakage or fracture. There are all sorts of factors that go into the creation process to ensure that the veneers are of the utmost quality. However, it is important to consider that if a patient grinds their teeth heavily, has a misaligned bite, or has bad habits that could put unnecessary stress on the veneers, they are more likely to become damaged.

How Do I Care for My Prepless Veneers?

Your prepless veneers act just like your normal teeth, so you don’t need to take any extra steps to care for them. Just continue to use the same best practices you do for your natural teeth. This includes brushing twice, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash every single day. You should also continue to see your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups every six months. This way, you can keep your smile healthy and enjoy the benefits of your prepless veneers for as long as possible.
