Most patients opt to received this type of dental veneers, as they can provide very natural-looking results and are especially durable, lasting around 25 years. This type of veneer is composed of a thin ceramic shell and typically requires the reduction of a small amount of the tooth’s outer surface, often including both the enamel and dentin, to create the most precise fit possible.

No-prep veneers can also provide beautiful results for the right candidates. They require no removal of the tooth enamel prior to placement, making them a conservative veneer option only appropriate for ideal cases. Prepless veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells that can help conceal many of the same imperfections as regular veneers. However, they may not be ideal for those with more severe cosmetic concerns, which require at least minimal preparation.
Dental veneers can often be placed using a “minimal-prep” technique, allowing patients to enjoy the positive effects of veneers with very little tooth preparation needed. With this approach, only a minimal amount of the tooth enamel will need to be removed, creating a less invasive alternative to the traditional placement of veneers.
