In dentisry, ceramic laminates and veneers, also known as "contact lens," are capable of providing an extremely faithful reproduction of the natural teeth with great color stability and periodontal biocompatibility. Minimal or no preparation veneers are heavily advertised as the answer to our patients' cosmetic needs.
preparation for laminate veneers remains within enamel, to ensure the bond strength and avoid or minimize the occurrence of postoperative sensitivity.
Like traditional veneers, the minimal preparation and “no-prep” alternatives are adhesively bonded to the facial (front) surface of the teeth. However, these minimal preparations and “no-prep” options typically do not require the dentist to grind, cut or file down any (or as much) tooth structure for proper placement. Certain cases may require minimal reduction of the tooth surface.
Additionally, there are some instances where “no-prep” veneer patients do not need an injection of local anesthetic, making the procedure quicker and more comfortable.
