Who qualifies for no preparation veneers?

No Prep Veneer process

The process for no preparation veneers is extremely simple and straightforward. Let me do my best to break it down from start to finish for you;
There is virtually no recovery time in the no preparation veneer process.


The difference lies in the amount of tooth structure removed before veneer placement. Traditional veneers require .7 – 1.0 mm of tooth reduction. Minimal preparation veneers involve a slight reduction of enamel, sometimes as little as .3-.5, while no prep veneers don’t require the removal of any tooth structure at all.

No preparation veneers can last anywhere from 15-30 years or more, depending on how well you care for and maintain them. We advise you to follow regular dental hygiene practices. Avoid habits like biting hard objects to improve their longevity and prevent them from chipping or breaking.

Not really! The application of these extremely thin veneers is generally less invasive than traditional veneers. Most patients report minimal to no discomfort based on their personal perception. Dr Heaton use a local anesthetic to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Yes! No prep veneers are designed to look natural and blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. So, these are a great option to enhance your teeth without making them look unnatural. The thin porcelain material used for veneers closely mimics the appearance of natural teeth.

The no prep veneer cost is not the same for everyone. It varies on factors like 

  • the type of veneers recommended
  • the number of veneers required 
  • the material used for your veneers

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Heaton, he will walk you through every detail, and provide an accurate estimate of the cost.

Yes, because no-prep veneers are reversible, you can return to your natural teeth if desired.

No-prep veneers don’t cause teeth to rot, but it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent any issues with the teeth underneath.
