At first glance, “no prep veneers” can sound a little bit scary. “Wait a minute,” you might be thinking, “someone’s going to do something to my teeth without putting any prep in??” of course, that’s definitely not the case. “No Prep Veneers” or “Lumineers” are called “no prep” because it means that no drilling is required for them to be put into your mouth. Indeed, there’s no removal of tooth structure before the veneers are put in. So, it means that there’s “no preparatory” work before putting these veneers in. Many of our patients sometimes seem a bit confused as to why they might want these no prep veneers over regular, porcelain veneers. In this blog, we’ll go over some reasons that no prep dental veneers in Los Angeles might be the right choice for you as well as some reasons that Dr. Mobasser may prescribe you with something else.
No Prep Dental Veneers in Los Angeles from Dr. Mobasser
Dr. Mobasser has put in so many different kinds of veneers over the years. He’s helped so many actors, actresses and other kinds of entertainment professionals to have the smile that they’ve always wanted. By that same token, you don’t have to be chasing the Hollywood dream to have a Hollywood smile. Dr. Mobasser assists regular people in giving them the smile of their lives, too. You’re never too old to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Most of our patients have dreamed about having a beautiful smile for as long as they can remember. However, even most of them are surprised when they actually see the results.
Perhaps the most popular factor with our no prep veneers is just that: they don’t include any invasive prep work. No one wants to have their teeth drilled into, or their teeth removed. That’s especially true if they don’t have to have either of those procedures. Not having to touch your existing teeth to give you a better smile is far and away the most popular feature of the no prep veneers. That being said, not everyone is the best candidate for these kinds of veneers. When you come to Dr. Mobasser, he or one his associates will go over your case. From there, we’ll figure out the best way to give you the smile that may have always seemed just out of the reach.
Less Money for Longer Time
On top of the “no drilling into your mouth” factor, no prep veneers are less expensive, too. So, you don’t have to pay as much for them as you would the ordinary porcelain veneers. You won’t have to drill into your wallet, either to get the smile you’ve always wanted. On top of that, these veneers also make it so you won’t need any temporaries, either. So, instead of having to sit through temporaries to be in your mouth and then taken out, you can just have the smile that you’ve been looking for. These veneers bond strongly to enamel. That means that they can stay put in your mouth for a long period of time.
Change if You Want It
As much as it may sound like we’re talking up the veneers so far in this blog, know that some people do decide to take them out. However, even when that happens, it shows one more benefit to these veneers: they’re easily removed. All that has to be done is they have to be cut out. That’s it. It’s an easily reversible procedure. Again, no one has to get anything drilled in their mouth or anything like that – the no prep veneers are simply cut off. In fact, there’s very minimal nerve damage (if any) to the tooth at any part of the process: application, removal, or every day in between.
The downsides to these kinds of veneers typically have a lot to do with them being bulkier than porcelain veneers. They’re bigger, and perhaps more noticeable. Also, they look much less natural. They can look brighter and whiter certainly, but in many cases, it’s an opaque white. People may notice that you got some work done; it’s unlikely that someone you’ve seen for years will think that you just started brushing your teeth that much or something.
Whether you go with the no prep veneers, the porcelain veneers, or some other kind of process, we can help you to get the smile that you’ve always wanted. You don’t have to sit and deal with having a smile that’s so much less than you might hope for. The million dollar, megawatt smile can be yours. Better still, it can be yours for so much less than a million dollars. To schedule a free consultation and begin the journey to your best smile, head to our site or call us at (310) 550-0383.
