Dental veneers are extremely versatile, require minimal tooth preparation and can often be an alternative to other cosmetically oriented treatments. So when might they be a better choice and why?
Choosing Veneers Instead of Crowns
Both crowns and veneers can be great at hiding defects in teeth, but it is only necessary to have a crown if a tooth is badly damaged. Otherwise a veneer could be a preferable choice and will preserve more of the healthy tooth structure. Veneers are great for covering up teeth that are too small or oddly shaped and for closing up or minimising spaces in between teeth.
Choosing Veneers Instead of Tooth Whitening
Not all teeth can be whitened effectively and if you have one or two teeth that are internally stained then we might suggest covering them up with veneers. The great thing about veneers is that they will not change shade, so the results will be long-lasting.
Veneers Instead of Orthodontics
Braces are a very conservative way to straighten teeth, but if you only have one or two teeth out of position or rotated and which could maybe benefit from being reshaped, then veneers could be a faster and more preferable solution.
Our veneers are made from the highest quality porcelains and can look fabulous. When you visit Apple Dental, we will always recommend options we feel will produce the very best and most conservative results.
