About Minimal Prep Dental Veneers
Minimal prep veneers are a conservative treatment option that dramatically transforms the appearance of an aging smile, discolored or misshapen teeth, and several other cosmetic imperfections. At Cosmetic Dental Studios in Midtown Manhattan, Dr. Victoria Veytsman blends her extensive cosmetic dentistry expertise and artistic skills to rejuvenate smile aesthetics with this custom dental veneer solution. Crafted of high-end materials that rival the translucency and reflective properties of natural enamel, minimal prep veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth in the aesthetic zone to brighten, straighten, and enhance the quality of the smile. Dr. Veytsman works closely with patients in the New York, NY area to design the ideal size, shape, and shade of minimal prep cosmetic veneers that bring balance, beauty, and a youthful vitality back to the smile.

Dr. Veytsman is proud to provide high-quality materials that look and feel very natural.

What to Expect
While traditional porcelain veneers require some removal of enamel to achieve an even fit, minimal prep veneers are ultra-thin and can often be placed with little to no preparation of the teeth. To begin, Dr. Veytsman takes an impression of the mouth and constructs a model of the teeth, which she uses to custom design each individual veneer. The restorations are then fabricated in a high-quality lab by some of the most talented ceramists in the field. When the dental veneers are completed and arrive at Cosmetic Dental Studios, typically a couple of weeks later, Dr. Veytsman schedules the patient to return and bonds the veneers in place. The restorations are adjusted as needed for a comfortable, natural fit.
Cosmetic dental veneers are cared for in the same manner as natural teeth by adhering to a good oral hygiene routine at home and attending routine dental cleaning and check-up visits at Cosmetic Dental Studios. Though minimal prep veneers may offer some resistance to stain, it is a good idea to minimize the consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco, and other products that may cause discoloration of the teeth. It is also important to avoid parafunctional habits, like teeth grinding or clenching, biting on pens, or chewing ice, as these activities may cause damage to veneer restorations. With ideal care, minimal prep ceramic veneers may last up to 20 years.
Treatment costs for minimal prep ceramic dental veneers can vary, according to the number of teeth receiving treatment and the type of material used. Since dental veneers are regarded as a cosmetic dentistry procedure, coverage is typically not provided by most dental insurance plans. Information on the overall cost of care and convenient payment solutions will be provided prior to beginning the procedure.
