No-Prep (Prepless) Veneer

application that is made directly by measuring, without any abrasion, without damaging the originality of the teeth. The difference from conventional laminate veneers is that it is applied without any preparations such as roughening or abrasion on the tooth surface. In this way, it can be removed at any time and allows you to use your own teeth in their original form.

It is a very successful method in terms of getting quick and aesthetic results in dental problems such as unprocessed veneers, color problem, material loss and tooth gap problem. They are adhered to the teeth one by one with a special bonding technique and since they are supported by natural teeth, their durability is not less than the original tooth. Even if there is decay from the inside of the tooth, the veneers are not damaged. It is not easily discolored due to its material feature, but it can reflect the color change that may present the tooth because it is very fine. No-prep veneers can be used comfortably for long periods of time. As with any dental restoration, good care and regular control prolongs the usage period.

What are the Advantages of No-Prep Veneer Treatment?

  • No Anxiety: The originality of your teeth will not deteriorate, and when desired you can return your teeth to their former state as if it had never been removed.
  • No Pain: Since there is no shaving, it is completed in a short time without anesthesia.

No-Prep Veneer Treatment Process:

  • First of all, your dentist evaluates whether this procedure is suitable for you by examining your teeth in detail, asking about your wishes and expectations. Because, like all other applications, this process may not be suitable for everyone. If appropriate, we continue with the following steps, if not, alternative options are recommended.
  • Detailed photography is taken and both jaws are recorded with an intraoral scanning camera and their relationship with each other is determined.
  • First, a smile design is made on the photographs as “two-dimensional”. In this design, a customized smile is designed by evaluating many issues such as the relationship of teeth and lips, face shape, gender, the form of the existing teeth, the visibility and symmetry of the gums in the smile.
  • If the two-dimensional design is accepted, the process can start, or if desired, the dimensioning and shaping can be made by transferring it to a different program, and a personalized Mock-Up plate is obtained by making “Three Dimensional” digital modeling in accordance with the finished shape. With this plaque, the potential smile is shown practically on his own teeth. If desired, modifications can be made on it and the ideal result is obtained without any concrete action. Thus, it is possible to start the process “carefree”.
  • In the Mock-Up application, if shape changes on the gums are required, laser sizing and symmetry are provided to the gums by taking the plaque borders as a guide. This process is called pink aesthetics. For aesthetic result, pink aesthetics are as important as lamina making, which we call white aesthetics.
  • If a change is made, the final state of the teeth is scanned with a camera over the Mock-Up material and sent to the laboratory.
  • The desired color is agreed by the patient and the dentist.
  • Laminas are prepared in the laboratory according to the given information.
  • The laminate coming to the clinic are rehearsed, corrected if necessary, and adhered to the teeth with special adhesive materials.

When Can Laminate Veneers & No-Prep Veneers Be Applied?

  • Laminate veneers should be made if the tooth color is very dark and more than a few tones of bleaching is desired, if the teeth are cramped or in a position requiring abrasion.
  • If the teeth are small in size, if there is a gap between the teeth and if excessive bleaching is not desired, a no-prep veneer should be applied.
  • In laminate veneer applications, after some abrasion of the enamel layer, the laminas are applied to the tooth surface, while no-prep veneers are not abraded.
  • If the laminate veneers are removed, new laminas must be made, if the no-prep veneers are removed, the teeth can be used in their original state.
  • According to the budget and aesthetic indications, the most appropriate treatment is given to the patient.
