What are Prepless Veneers?
Dental veneers are a purely cosmetic treatment to hide your smile flaws. Teeth veneers are custom made of thin shells of porcelain material bonded permanently to the front of your teeth, giving you a smile that looks picture-perfect and functions naturally.
Many cosmetic dentists only provide porcelain veneers, which requires extensive preparation to grind down healthy teeth enamel making room for the extra layer of porcelain material. Dr. Merrill understands many of his patients prefer minimally invasive dentistry, so he offers the convenience of prepless veneers.

Still Have Questions About Prepless Veneers?

Your teeth will remain healthy and strong with no long-term damage or tooth sensitivity. Dr. Merrill’s no-prep dental veneer is a conservative solution for a stunning smile makeover.
- Who can benefit from no-prep dental veneers?

- Teeth that are too small and undersized
- Large gaps between teeth
- Discolored, stained, or dull teeth
- Teeth that are worn down, cracked, or misshapen
- Minor crookedness in the smile
- How long do prepless veneers last?
When designed and placed by a skilled cosmetic dentist like Dr. Merrill, prepless veneers can last 10-30 years with proper dental care. The durable, stain-resistant porcelain material will stay bright, white, and healthy.
