If you’re looking for a fast, conservative cosmetic dentistry solution, minimal prep veneers may be the ideal option to enhance your smile. Like traditional veneers, they correct and conceal any number of dental flaws. Unlike traditional veneers, they require little to no removal of healthy tooth structure in order to blend flawlessly into a healthy, natural smile line. Keep reading to find out more about minimal prep veneers, and reach out to your trusted dentist to learn more about their cosmetic dentistry solutions.
What are Minimal Prep Veneers?
Traditional porcelain veneers are about the size of a fingernail. In order to attach these veneers without changing the natural smile line, a small amount of surface tooth enamel needs to be removed. Minimal prep veneers are closer to the size of a contact lens. Because they are so much thinner than traditional porcelain veneers, dentists typically don’t need to remove very much if any surface tooth enamel.
Who Should Consider Minimal Prep Veneers?
Any patients who wants to transform flawed teeth into gorgeous smiles should consider a minimal prep veneer. Without losing any healthy tooth enamel, patients will be able to conceal numerous chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in teeth. The process is simple and straightforward. We will need to schedule two short treatment visits. During the initial visit, we’ll prepare teeth. In some cases, we need to remove a small amount of surface tooth enamel, but using many varieties of minimal prep veneers mean we do not need to remove any tooth structure. Once your smile is prepared, we capture bite impressions. For patients who needed a small amount of enamel removed, we’ll place a temporary to protect the prepared teeth. Next, a trusted lab creates your minimal prep veneer. When the dentist receives your veneer, you’ll return to the office for placement.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Minimal Prep Veneers?
In most cases, dental insurance considers minimal prep veneers to be a purely elective treatment, and they do not cover cosmetic services. However, your dentist and dental team can help you find low or no interest financing by working with third party financiers like CareCredit, DentalFeePlan, or Enhance Patient Finance. These financiers offer a variety of payment plans to help patients get the flawless smiles they deserve.
