Advantages of Minimal-Prep Veneers
Minimal-Prep Veneers Are a Less Invasive Procedure
Minimal-prep veneers are thinner and require minimal tooth reduction, so they’re less of a dental procedure. Because of this, there’s also less tooth sensitivity afterward, and minimal-prep veneers require less anesthesia.
Minimal-Prep Veneers Have a Shorter Recovery Period
Since minimal-prep veneers only require minimal enamel removal, your recovery time and discomfort are significantly reduced.
Minimal-Prep Veneers Are More Affordable Than Traditional Veneers
Minimal-prep veneers require little to no tooth preparation, which means the dentist doesn’t need to remove any tooth structure. Because of this, minimal-prep veneers are more affordable than traditional veneers.
Minimal-Prep Veneers Are a Better Match for Natural Teeth
Minimal-prep veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the front of the teeth. They are a type of veneer that requires much less of the teeth to be altered or removed before they are placed. As a result, the veneers provide a much more natural look.
No Need for Sedation
Minimal-prep veneers require less reduction (removal of enamel) than traditional veneers. This means that they can usually be placed without shots, anesthesia, or numbing.
