Prepless veneers have been around for a little while now. Lumineers is a brand name of veneer that began this process of trying to develop a prepless veneer. The only problem with it is it turns out that the Lumineer is still a little bit on the thick side, and so they look a little bubbly when you see them. This may have to do with how the doctor prepped the case or prepped it as in prepless, didn't trim when there should have been maybe a little trimming, things like that. But even still, the porcelains and the technician is what's behind how thin that restoration can be made.
We found that we needed to bring the prepless veneer into our in-house laboratory where the restoration could be made as thin as possible using the finest, highest-grade porcelains that we could get our hands on, because the coarser, less expensive porcelains, they're too porous, they're too weak, they're too bubbly to get down to these super-fine, paper-thin, contact-lens-thin thicknesses. You can't just make this out of any porcelain, and you can't just make it like standard veneers. It's a very special process, and when you get these down to the thickness of a contact lens, you better have some technicians that got a steady hand.
Then, when you get those and you put them on the teeth, there are other little things that you do that you can get them even more thinned and more tapered so that they disappear under the gumline and emerge from the smile as though they grew there. They don't look like they're little bubbly Chiclets sitting on your teeth, so the prepless veneer is now coming of age. It's a new technology. It's not widespread because of the tremendous demand on a steady hand and very, very technically skilled artisans.

Discover the Beauty of Prep-Free Veneers
Over the past 35-plus years, Dr. Moore has introduced countless patients to the wonders of dental veneers. In the past, and at many other dental offices today, patients had to wait two to three weeks to realize their dreams of a perfect smile because traditional veneers must be sent out for manufacturing.
In addition, traditional veneers generally require removing a small amount of your tooth enamel before they can be bonded to your teeth. This is not the case for prepless dental veneers. Because they are designed to be as thin as possible (yet strong and durable), we can place these veneers without modifying your teeth. This makes getting your new veneers quicker and easier!
Our custom prepless veneers are made right here in our office, where Dr. Moore can ensure they meet his stringent standards. We make each one individually for optimal beauty and precision. If there’s ever a problem with one of our veneers, we (and you) will know exactly where they came from.
