Wonderful article you have given for no prep veneers. Thank you for your posting . I would suggest getting the teeth straightened first to relieve the crowding and correcting the overbite. Then see if you need veneers. Invisalign may help you achieve this. If at the end of treatment you still don't like the way your teeth look then you can always add veneers. The no prep can work in some cases but often times they can look a little bulky when no preparation is done. Its pretty hard to evaluate any Veneer situation without photos and a registration of how you bite (how your teeth come together) There are so many variables that a dentist has to look at to determine what type of Veneer material can be used, what shape, colour and how much to Prep the teeth being Veneered - and its different for everyone. The problem that can exist with No Prep Veneers is that the edge of the Veneers will sit on top of your tooth and at that point there will be a raised margin. If you are really set on No Prep, you might want to try out Composite Veneers first, they are less expensive than going to Full Veneers and can have a very nice result also. There are many new materials out , such as Empress Direct etc, that are very Veneer like in their appearance.
