Open Up, Cosmetic Dentistry Revealed

December 6, 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Alex @ 5:58 pm

I have many patients ask whether veneers are necessary for them, and whether there are other options to make their smile look more esthetic.   There seems to be a lot of confusion about differences in veneers, crowns, and how far each can be in order to fix ones smile.
What makes dentistry exciting for me is that each patient has different needs, and expectations of what their smile should look like.    That’s why we spend a lot of time talking about expectations, and options in our office with our patients.

 

In the next series of blogs, I would like to discuss the extent that a veneer, or crown and even whitening can be used as a way to achieve a truly healthy natural smile.

 

One more thing, I will try not to use complicated definitions, and dental lingo in order to educate.   Purpose of this blog is not to impress those reading my blog, rather, it is to impart knowledge that will help those who want a healthier smile achieve it.

 

Lets get to it, shall we?   First, veneers and crowns are very similar.   Most differences arise from amount of tooth reduction, the surfaces involved, and the materials used to cover the teeth.   To put it simply,, veneers cover the front surface and are usually made of porcelain, and crowns usually cover the tooth all on the sides.  To summarize, crowns usually involves more tooth surfaces vs. a veneer.

 

So why would anyone get a crown, if you can just get veneer?  Sometimes I have patients come in and say, “I was told I need crowns, and I am wondering if you can do veneers from me instead?”    This seems like a very reasonable reasoning…

 

What we need to know and remember is the reason/problem will drive what will be the best option.  Meaning, if a person comes in with large cavities, and broken teeth.   Veneers will not been option since most cavities don’t pick and choose.  They are usually on back, side, front, and top of the teeth.  Therefore, the problem of having cavities all the way around tooth will demand an option of a crown that will cover tooth all on multiple surfaces.

 

In our next blog, we will talk about when it is good idea to do crowns or veneers on someone has lot of CROWDING or SPACES.
