Understanding Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic shells designed to conceal the front-facing portion of your natural tooth. Because they are so thin, they do not require much enamel removal to make space in your smile for the veneer. This also means that most of your natural tooth structure will remain intact underneath the veneer. Once the veneer is permanently secured to the exterior of your tooth, it will cosmetically replace the tooth while leaving you with the functionality you need to eat, drink, and speak normally.
Porcelain veneers are designed custom to you and your needs. You can get one veneer or a full mouth of veneers depending on your needs and goals. Our doctors will thoroughly evaluate your smile to ensure that any underlying dental concerns causing your cosmetic concerns are treated before placing your veneers.
While porcelain veneers are similar to dental crowns, they both serve different purposes in your smile. Dental crowns are designed to replace the entire exterior of a severely broken or decayed tooth while porcelain veneers are used to only replace the front-facing portion of your tooth. If your tooth is too damaged for a porcelain veneer, a dental crown may be a better alternative to restore the look, feel, AND functionality of your affected tooth.
