Minimal Prep Veneers in Chandler AZ

What are minimal prep veneers?

Traditional veneers are bonded to the front surface of the teeth, and before bonding the front teeth are prepared by reducing the tooth structure. However, unlike traditional porcelain veneers, minimal prep veneers do not require a large amount of tooth structure to be removed. In some cases, the veneers can be placed without any preparation or reduction of tooth structure, while most cases require only minimal reduction of tooth structure.

Because minimal prep veneers do not remove large amounts of tooth structure, they are usually bonded directly to the enamel of your tooth which will provide much better strength and longevity to your veneers.

Minimal prep veneers or no-prep veneers can address a number of cosmetic dental needs for adults and adolescents which include:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Slightly discolored teeth
  • Space or gaps between the teeth
  • Slightly misaligned or misshapen teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Worn teeth

Minimal prep veneers can preserve the natural tooth structure, reduces patient pain, produce outstanding results and saves on the amount of time you actually spend in the chair. They are ideal solutions for a number of restoration needs. Like to know more information about minimal prep veneers, schedule an appointment with us. Don’t worry even if you are not a candidate for minimal prep veneers, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Heaton, can help you with other cosmetic options to enhance your smile.

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
