Minimal-prep veneers from your cosmetic dentist in Galesburg are the ideal option for anyone who has been wishing for the perfection of porcelain veneers but feels hesitant about the commitment they require. Minimal-prep veneers are just what the name suggests – dental veneers that require less preparation than our standard veneers. The big difference lies in their size. Minimal-prep veneers are much thinner than traditional veneers and therefore require less removal of your own, natural enamel before placement. Because of their slimmer profile, they may not be the best choice for folks who are hard on their teeth, but they are the ideal option for younger patients or those who desire a more subtle and natural-looking change. Happily, minimal-prep veneers can do almost any job a traditional veneer can do such as:
- Close minor gaps
- Straighten subtle crookedness
- Lengthen short teeth
- Even an irregular tooth line
- Cover deep or intrinsic stains
- Bring a damaged, chipped, or cracked tooth back into harmony with your smile
You choose the size, shape, and shading that suits you best, and we’ll take care of the rest so your smile looks amazing – without the commitment!
