Dental veneers are a great option in the right circumstance for people that have real dark colorations in their teeth that can't be corrected with some form of whitening or some form of bleaching. Or, that have a shape to their teeth that they want to change and sometimes even have alignment or minor alignment problems with their teeth. There's three different types of veneers out there, which is something that a lot of people don't realize and we offer all three. One is a no-prep veneer where you don't really have to grind the tooth down much to correct the problems. The other is a minimal-prep veneer where we do a little bit of shaping of the teeth and put the veneers on over top of it. The third is what's called a full-prep veneer or traditional veneer. The different veneer options have to be chosen for an individual circumstances. Not every single option is appropriate to every single person's problems or what they want to correct. The minimal-prep veneers are great because there's not a lot of grinding on the teeth, but it's a specific situation where that will actually work out well. The full-prep veneers are for people who really want a meticulous result. Who really want to correct color, really want to correct the tooth shape and sometimes the alignment of their teeth, and they kind of want almost a Hollywood perfect smile result. The minimal-prep veneers are actually somewhere in between.

Veneers are actually one of the forms of cosmetic dentistry that allow us to change the color, the shape, and sometimes the position of teeth to give people a better, more attractive smile. What many people don't realize is there's actually three forms of dental veneers: there are prepless veneers, there are minimal-prep veneers, and there are traditional full-prep veneers. And really what that's referencing is when we go to plan and actually perform the veneers on the teeth, how much are we grinding the teeth down.
So the best thing to do is to sit down with each individual and take a look at their particular problem. Discuss what changes they wanna make, discuss what their expectations are, and look at the three options with the veneers to figure out which one's going to be best for that particular person.
Each of these options have pros and cons, like so many of the things that we deal with in life, but generally one of the questions we ask patients when we're contemplating veneer treatment: What are their expectations? If people want to make minor changes, a lot of times we can use prepless veneers to accomplish that. If, however, people want what we call a “Hollywood smile,” that oftentimes is gonna take us more to the traditional full-prep veneers, where we can actually shape the teeth down and shape the base of where the veneer is going to be bonded, so that the outcome in the shape of the veneer is as perfect as we can make it.

Placing dental veneers is a simple process. We remove a small portion of the enamel and then take a digital impression to find the most appropriate fit for your veneers. We offer three types of veneers:
- Porcelain Dental Veneers — These traditional veneers closely match the translucent quality of your natural enamel.
- e.max Dental veneers — These thinner veneers are also translucent like natural teeth and are durable.
- Lumineers — These veneers typically do not require any anesthetic because they are so thin they do not need any preparation of your natural teeth. Usually, we can place them in just two visits!
Snap-On Smile® is a great solution for patients who do not want veneers placed on their teeth You can pop off Snap-On Smile whenever you want, and there’s no tooth preparation required.
It’s important to know that if we file down a tooth, this treatment is not reversible. That’s why we use digital imaging and wax-ups to plan your procedure and show you exactly what your smile will look like after treatment.
