When you wear a crown veneer, you’re not just changing your look – you’re also protecting your teeth and improving your oral health. In this article, we've compiled the top facts about crown veneers that everyone should know!
Crown Veneers: The Facts
Crown veneers are an effective way to improve the appearance of your teeth by covering gaps and adding more tooth structure to your smile. They can also be used in situations where someone doesn’t have a lot of teeth left behind after you respray the teeth, or if the patient has lost all their teeth.
When asking a dentist about whether crown veneers are right for you, they’ll ask you a few questions like: How old are you? What part of town do you live in? Are there any problems with your teeth? (like an infection or sensitivity) Do you have any allergies to plastic? If so, what type? All of these questions will help them determine if you are a candidate for this type of treatment.
A lot of people aren’t aware that there are no major differences between the two types of veneers. Both can be used to fill in spaces, or create new tooth structures while maintaining the natural shape and size of your teeth. That being said, lingual veneers extend over the front part of each tooth, and labial veneers also cover both sides of your teeth. Typically labial veneer treatment is less expensive than lingual veneer treatment.
