Can Minimal Prep Veneers Correct Multiple Dental Imperfections at Once?

By: Dr. Victoria Veytsman


Some people are born with perfect teeth. But for many of us, life takes a toll on our smiles. From chips and cracks to small gaps and discoloration, dental imperfections are common. This can take a toll on our confidence, especially if we already feel self-conscious about our teeth.

Now, thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry, we have options for correcting multiple dental imperfections at the same time. Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York and Beverly Hills is proud to offer minimal prep veneers for patients in need of a smile makeover. Below, celebrity dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman explains how this innovative treatment can provide a smile transformation in just two appointments.

So, what are minimal prep veneers?

Minimal prep veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells bonded to the front surface of teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, which require some shaving down of the natural tooth structure, minimal prep veneers can be placed with very little preparation. This makes the treatment a safe and conservative way to enhance a smile.

What dental imperfections can you correct?

Minimal prep veneers address a wide range of cosmetic issues, including chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and misshapen or uneven teeth. They also improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth to provide a straighter and more symmetrical smile. Our patients love that they can achieve multiple cosmetic improvements with just one treatment.

What is the process of getting minimal prep veneers?

The first step toward getting minimal prep veneers is a consultation with a qualified and experienced cosmetic dentistry professional. Dr. Veytsman wants to understand your smile goals and evaluate your oral health to plan out the best possible way to move forward. Once you are cleared for treatment, we take impressions and images of your mouth.

Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York and Beverly Hills works with talented ceramists to custom-create your veneers to fit your unique smile. This process only takes a couple of weeks. Once your veneers are ready, you will return for a second appointment, where they are bonded to your teeth. You should see a beautiful-looking smile that lasts a long time.

Are there any dental imperfections that cannot be corrected?

While minimal prep veneers address many different kinds of imperfections, they are not suitable for all cases. For example, severe misalignment or bite issues may require orthodontic treatment instead. Decayed or severely damaged teeth also need restorative procedures before veneers can be placed. Dr. Veytsman can help determine the best course of action for achieving your desired results.

How long do minimal prep veneers last?

With proper long-term care and maintenance, minimal prep veneers can last 10 – 15 years. This includes practicing good oral hygiene habits and avoiding biting down on hard objects or using your teeth as tools. Regular dental check-ups are also important to ensure the health and longevity of your veneers.
