Prepless & Porcelain Veneers
If you are uncomfortable or embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth, then you are not alone. Veneers have become a popular option for those who want to improve their smiles, but did you know that there are different types of dental veneers? There are two varieties — prepless veneers and porcelain veneers, and Dr. Lattinelli’s patients seek him for both. To learn more about prepless and porcelain veneers, please read on.
Prepless veneers are applied with a special adhesive to the surface of your problem teeth and are great to cover up imperfections like chips and stains.
Prepless veneers are the perfect option for those who are hesitant to fully commit to porcelain veneers because they are removable, and your original teeth remain intact. They are also a favored option for those who do not wish to go under anesthesia.
Porcelain veneers are the more traditional option that you may be more familiar with. If you want porcelain veneers, then you must be prepared to undergo local anesthetic and be okay with the enamel of your teeth being filed down in order to fit your new veneers. In other words, porcelain veneers are a permanent choice. That being said, they are so popular because they are versatile and deliver impressive results. Porcelain veneers can be used to fix many types of dental imperfections, and they are especially popular for those who want a total smile makeover.
Though there are some key differences between prepless veneers and porcelain veneers, they both have the same benefits – they help improve the appearance of your teeth, and can therefore help improve the way you feel about yourself. For some people, veneers have truly been a life-changing choice that has boosted their confidence and self-image. If you are interested in having dental veneers, then Dr. Lattinelli and his trained team are here to answer any of your questions and set you up with an appointment.
