How Are Veneers Different From Crowns?
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain attached to the front of your teeth. They differ from dental crowns and require a less invasive installation process. Unlike with crowns, veneers do not require trimming of the backside of your teeth and less tooth enamel reduction is needed. The recovery time for veneer installation is typically shorter than from a crown.
What Can They Help With?
Veneers are useful for people who want minor changes to the shape of their teeth. They can fix issues with tooth alignment and even close gaps between teeth. If you have small fractures, they can provide correction. They are also useful in improving the color of stained or discolored teeth.
What Happens During Installation?
Once we have determined you are a good candidate for veneers, you will be given an appointment for installation. For your comfort, anesthesia options are available.
After cleaning the treatment area, we will be able to determine what color of veneers will match your natural teeth best. The veneer will be custom made to fit and match your natural teeth. It should be virtually undetectable to the untrained eye. Once a color match is made, a small amount of your tooth’s enamel will be removed to ensure a secure and natural fit.
The veneer is then cleaned and carefully installed. It is secured with dental grade adhesive. Excess material is removed, and finally, the veneer is polished. To ensure you are satisfied with the results and everything is correctly in place, a follow-up appointment will likely be required.
