Prepless Veneers in Grosse Pointe, MI

Traditional veneers are able to elevate your smile, but come at the cost of removing a small portion of your enamel. This irreversible step can make patients think twice about undergoing the cosmetic procedure. Luckily, Dr. Mary Sue Stonisch understands your apprehension and offers prepless veneers as a non-invasive alternative. Instead of removing your enamel, your teeth are just lightly sanded to clear the surface and remove any stains for your restorations.

With the latest technology, your treatment can be simple and drill-less. This technique is called “prepless veneers” which means no drilling and no grinding down. A common term to describe this type of procedure is “minimally invasive dentistry”.

In addition to the durability of prepless veneers, other benefits include:

  • Stronger than traditional veneers due to their bond to enamel
  • Ideal for correcting gaps, fractured teeth, and stained teeth that do not respond to whitening
  • Low-maintenance
  • Reduced downtime as temporization while waiting for your final veneers is typically not needed
  • Longer-lasting due to the strength of the bond to the natural enamel

What Are Prepless Veneers?

Custom prepless veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure. Unlike traditional veneers that require part of your enamel to be removed, these ultra-thin shells can be attached to your teeth without any prep work needing to be done. The best part is that prepless veneers can be completed faster and still produce similar results for your smile.

How Can My Smile Benefit With Prepless Veneers?

Prepless veneers offer a variety of benefits for patients who don’t want part of their enamel removed. Some of these advantages include:

  • Reversible cosmetic procedure
  • Little to no prep time needed
  • Faster procedure time
  • Shorter recovery time
  • No need for anesthesia
  • No drills used

While traditional porcelain veneers are effective in covering cosmetic imperfections, our prepless veneers allow you to enjoy the look of a beautiful smile without sacrificing any of your natural teeth in the process.

How Are Prepless Veneers Placed?

You’ll begin your prepless veneer journey by having an initial consultation with Dr. Stonisch. During this visit, she’ll examine your teeth and oral health to determine whether this procedure is the right solution for your smile goals.

Once confirmed as an ideal candidate, Dr. Stonisch will begin the procedure by first cleaning your teeth and lightly sanding them to eliminate any surface stains or minor imperfections. This ensures that nothing interferes with the look of your prepless veneers. Since these customized shells are incredibly thin, it’s important that the shading is determined carefully — that way they’re able to blend perfectly with your natural tooth enamel.

After your prepless veneers are meticulously placed on your teeth, Dr. Stonisch will do some quick adjustments before letting you see your renewed set of pearly whites. Once you’re satisfied with the results, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of your beautiful smile.

How Long Do Prepless Veneers Last?

Prepless veneers can last more than 20 years with proper care. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling biannual checkups with Dr. Stonisch at our Grosse Pointe office. Since prepless veneers require a minimum amount of alterations, you can choose to remove them without the need of another restoration.

Am I a Candidate for Prepless Veneers?

Our resident dentist, Dr. Stonisch will be able to conduct an evaluation of your smile to determine the best procedure for your teeth.
