On TV shows featuring dental makeovers, people endure extreme dental work to achieve a beautiful smile.

This demand has reintroduced porcelain veneers with no or minimal tooth structure removal, called “No Prep” veneers.

When No Prep veneers first became popular in the 1980s, they were an improvement over crowns and caps. Applying these veneers was even a reversible procedure. Unfortunately, these early veneers were very thick so patients wearing them often had a bucktooth appearance. These veneers were also yellowed to match the color of natural teeth and whiter shades were not available. Naturally, patient and dentist interest in No Prep veneers waned.

Fortunately, porcelain technology has improved over the years. These days, veneers are thinner, more durable, and dazzlingly white. That’s why patients who want the most conservative and best esthetic treatment possible and dentists who want to accommodate them are turning to No Prep veneers, such as Cerinate Lumieer veneers, to change the appearance of their smiles.
