“Prepless” Veneers

Painless porcelain veneers delivered in Orange County

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic slices that bond to your teeth to reshape and restructure them. Porcelain veneers are not only durable but also have lifelike aesthetics. At Pro Smiles, we use them for fixing smiles that have stains, chips, cracks, or significant gaps between them. But they require preparation of the damage teeth for their attachment – a process in which we will remove a thin layer of the dental enamel to create space. For many patients, sacrificing a segment of their healthy tooth structure for bonding veneers is unacceptable.

Many patients avoid getting veneers for smile restoration, just because they don’t want to sacrifice their natural tooth structure. If the prospect of undergoing tooth preparation for getting veneers has stopped you in the past from getting veneers, then we recommend Lumineers™ in Orange County. These fantastic “prepless” veneers from Dr. Ivan Ho – a renowned cosmetic dentist in Orange County – can quickly and effortlessly transform an imperfect smile into a picture-perfect, lasting smile – in just a few days.

The difference between Lumineers and regular porcelain veneers

In the case of porcelain veneers, the surface of the tooth needs to be shaved down to create space for bonding the veneers. This is not the case with Lumineers – they are so thin, just about the same thickness as contact lenses (`0.1mm), that they can be bonded to the tooth without the need for any tooth alteration. Since they are extremely thin, they reflect light, just like the natural tooth enamel. This is the secret behind their lifelike, naturally beautiful appearance.
