If you’re searching for a solution to enhance your whole smile, veneers and crowns offer many benefits. Veneers are just as permanent as crowns, and both are excellent choices for changing the shape and color of a tooth. Veneers and crowns can be made of dental porcelain or composite resin, so neither offers particular advantages in regards to material benefits.
Porcelain dental veneers are great options for patients who are looking only for a quick, permanent cosmetic improvement to their teeth. They don’t require much change to your tooth’s structure since less than 1 mm of your tooth’s enamel needs to be removed to allow for the veneers porcelain.
Crowns require a little more structural change to the tooth, requiring more than 2 mm of the tooth’s enamel to be removed. Still, a crown provides structural support to the tooth, and they’re often recommended for teeth that have been damaged by deep cavities, disease, trauma and teeth-grinding. Porcelain crowns fit over the tooth’s entire inner core and act as structural supports for the tooth, while a veneer only covers one side of the tooth. This makes crowns a preferred choice for restoring back teeth that need to withstand the back part of the jaw’s biting force.
Once you choose veneers, our dentist makes a mold of your tooth that is used to create your custom-made veneer. The veneer application procedure is painless, but our dentist may need to take off a small amount of your tooth’s enamel. The thickness of enamel removed corresponds to the thickness of your veneer. Depending on the brand and type of your veneer, less than 1 mm of your enamel is removed. Once the surface of your tooth is prepared, our dentist bonds the veneer to your tooth. With this secure bond in place, your veneer won’t move around once it’s in place. When the procedure is complete, your veneer won’t stain and it will feel just like your own tooth.
If you avoid injury to your teeth, your veneers can enhance your smile for many years to come. Caring for your teeth and veneers is important, so brush and floss daily and maintain a regular schedule for dental visits. Be sure to avoid using your porcelain teeth to open bags or bottles.
