"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…"

"Good tip on the HT ingots- I have moved into doing many of my veneers using LT and either underwaxing or cutting back to be thin and layering to get the best of both worlds. I have found that HT ingots generally look great for partial coverage…"

"I would not cement these materials. The bonding technique has proven itself and there is no reason to risk failure when there are many simple one step materials that work wonderfully."

"Minimal prep veneers are the rage for some . Even the lumineers people say that most often a minimal prep is needed. That said, if the patients teeth are inclined slightly lingual then maybe a no prep can be done. Pascal Magne has felt that enamel…"

"No question zirconia is a very useful material but there is also no doubt about design and technique sensitivity. My migration to e-max is due to the fact that for the most part you are using a very strong monolayer ceramic with only a minimal…"

"I have done minimal prep and no prep veneers in situations hypodontia and peg laterals with good results. These cases are generally bonded to 100% enamel and should work out well in the long run. I generally prefer at least a slight prep so as not…"

"Hi Richard, I asked one of our members, Greg Paskerian, for his comments on this. His response is as follows: "Cary, I haven't done any "Lumineer" veneers. I have done minimal prep where the goal was to improve the contours with…"

Ira N. Dickerman, CDT replied to Richard Sousa's discussion No prep veneers in the group Esthetic Dentistry
"It is my understanding that no prep veneers have limited application. They are thin so they can't be used to cover badly discolored teeth and they will overcontour the teeth. They have created a lot of patient interest and that is a good thing."

Richard Sousa replied to Richard Sousa's discussion No prep veneers in the group Esthetic Dentistry
"I actually was interested in the Lumineer type of veneers."

Has anyone had experience with the no prep veneers? How do they look? My concern is bulk and contour.

Hi Doc,
We came up with a very neat idea to drive patient traffic to the dental office with an Real Time Q&A and Online Appointment Booking System. We need some real beta testers and who can test it better than the dentists users themselves? Let me know what you think of the idea. It is just a beta set up for now, so nothing is concrete yet until we get feedbacks from actual users. Please make suggestions from the practical side of the booking procedures. What are the features that you like to have in place so that the patients from your area can actually get booked into your dental office. Through the surveys, we are going to tailor make the features to suit your requirements. For this weekend, if you have some time, please check it out at www.designsmile.com/new. Beta testing starts on Monday. Thanks in advance!

Hi Richard,
Welcome to WebDental! We look forward to your participation. Feel free to join a few groups. I trained at BU in Perio with Cynthia. I see that you are "friends" with her.
