Veneers for Teeth in Knoxville
In some cases, Knoxville dentist, Dr. Erpenbach, may suggest DURAthins, a type of minimal-preparation veneer that is designed to require no enamel reduction. Our prepless veneers for teeth produce a bright, white appearance that is adjusted to perfectly match the patient’s smile shade.
What is the Difference Between Porcelain Veneers and Prepless Veneers?
Prepless veneers for teeth can cover up stains, gaps, and chips, just like porcelain veneers. They can even straighten crooked teeth instantly!
Prepless veneers for teeth are a great choice for patients who are hesitant to file down healthy tooth enamel. Instead of filing down the teeth to prepare them for the veneers, Dr. Erpenbach will bond your veneers directly to the teeth. Prepless veneers are appealing because they are:
Whether you have stained, broken, or crooked teeth, ask Knoxville dentist, Dr. Erpenbach, if you are a candidate for prepless veneers!
Prepless veneers are consistent with Dr. Erpenbach’s biomimetic approach of building up teeth rather than cutting or drilling them down. With less or no preparation compared to traditional veneers for teeth, DURAthins cover front teeth to create uniformity.
Biomimetic dentistry involves less drilling and less damage to your natural teeth. Dr. Erpenbach seeks to build up your teeth rather than cause fractures, weakness, or decay. This biomimetic approach is beneficial to the patient in several ways.
The biomimetic approach aims to:
- Preserve the natural teeth so the procedure is reversible at any time
- Strengthen the teeth instead of breaking them down, fortifying them against bacterial infection
- Provide all of the benefits of dental work without any of the discomfort
- Mimic real teeth with the latest scientific advancements and materials
- Reduce or eliminate post-procedure sensitivity
Some no-prep veneers for teeth can look bulky, but DURAthins are among the most aesthetic available. Some no-prep veneers are not the right smile makeover procedure for everyone, so Dr. Erpenbach will evaluate your smile before making any recommendations.
