|Veneers are a type of dental restoration that can improve the appearance of your teeth, as well as their function. There are similarities between veneers and crowns, also a dental restoration method for unsightly or damaged teeth, with the key difference being that crowns cover the whole tooth, while veneers cover only the front.
Each of these methods has its perks, but getting veneers offers unique advantages, especially when applied to your front teeth.
Minor Shape CorrectionsIf you have issues with the shape of your front teeth and enough healthy tooth structure to apply veneers, they are a cost-effective choice for this type of cosmetic dental concern.
A Conservative Approach
Unlike crowns, veneers don't require much grinding of healthy tooth structure to perform the procedure. Our staff will only need to grind down about a millimeter of your tooth's surface to apply a veneer.
Since most insurance plans don't cover cosmetic dentistry, veneers are a relatively affordable choice for many of our patients. Porcelain veneers run about as much on average as a crown, but they don't require prior procedures to prepare the tooth, which can add to the expense considerably.
Even More Cost-Effective
If you choose composite veneers over porcelain ones, the price drops significantly, making them a good choice when you need restoration quickly but can't afford porcelain veneers.
Natural Looking TeethLast, but certainly not least, porcelain veneers provide a very natural look, even when applied to your highly visible front teeth. They are a simple method to improve the look of stained front teeth with minor chips, for instance.
When your front teeth are unsightly, it can lower your confidence and affect the way you interact with others. Rather than settle for a less-than-you smile, contact our office for information about how to improve the look and function of your front teeth with veneers.
