Do All Veneers Require Trimming?

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Ashley Miller
Veneers are a good option for people who want to fix problems with their teeth. They come in handy when you are suffering from broken, cracked, or discolored teeth. Considering their natural look, they are preferred by many as opposed to other solutions. However, one may be afraid that the trimming process may be cumbersome and tiring. But do all veneers require teeth trimming? Read on to learn more. Teeth Trimming Not all veneers require teeth trimming before installation. However, in most cases, your teeth may need to be trimmed. This is because veneers do add thickness to the tooth they attach to. The enamel on your teeth may need trimming to make talking, chewing, and eating less awkward. Trimming also helps keep your bite the same by ensuring that the veneer does not stick out. If you visit our offices, you do not have to worry about trimming since we follow the required guidelines on the amount of enamel that can be trimmed. If the veneer in question is thinner, we will trim only a minuscule part of the enamel. Either way, the installation process is simple and precise. When Trimming Is Not Needed In some cases, trimming is not required at all. This is because there are extremely thin types of veneers that do not need trimming. It is also possible to apply a specific type of composite bonding material that does not need trimming. Similarly, some veneers offer no-prep options. This means that such veneers are installed without the need for trimming. Veneers are a solution to many teeth problems that can affect your smile and appearance. Their installation is easy, and they tend to be effective. If you are wondering whether you can have veneers without undergoing the process of trimming, visit our offices for a dental assessment. We will determine the best options for you and help you get a healthy smile!...
