Veneers are similar to crowns, but they only cover the front surface of a tooth and don’t go all the way around it.
Veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry that can be used to cover up chipped/discolored teeth. They’re made from porcelain and applied directly onto the surface of the teeth.
Due to their size veneers require a much smaller dental procedure than that of a crown and typically can be fitted in just two appointments.
Dental veneers are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. They are made from a thin piece of porcelain that is shaped and then glued to the front of your tooth.
Instead of functioning to protect teeth, veneers function to improve the appearance of teeth. When we make veneers for patients, we talk with them about how they want their smile to look, and we make the veneers to match what they want.
Most people are not aware of the benefits of veneers versus crowns. Veneers are pre-formed pieces that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth for cosmetic reasons. The cosmetic benefits include whitening, reshaping, reducing size, and changing the shape of teeth. Crowns, on the other hand, cover both sides of a tooth in order to restore it to its natural shape.
Veneers are a great alternative to crowns, but they are certainly not right for everyone. Veneers are made of porcelain and cover the front of the tooth. They can be used to straighten teeth, close gaps between front teeth or cover up stains. If you want your teeth to look aesthetically perfect while still maintaining the health of your natural tooth, veneers may be a great option.
