Veneers vs Crowns

Veneers vs Crowns

Today, I would like to talk about the veneers, compare with crowns.
To understand better the word “veneers“, I always bring the example of furniture manufacturing.
Everyone understands a different kind of woods being used for the tables and other surfaces.
The same in the mouth. We are preparing the surfaces of the anterior teeth, mostly, and cover them with special material. It can be done during one visit, which is the composite veneer or porcelain veneer, which is manufactured in the lab, after we prepare the tooth and send the scan to the laboratory. Because it is produced in the Laboratory the cost of the procedure is similar, since the lab fee is involved.
Sometimes the Veneer is not recommended, and we have many criteria to review when we are treatment planning.
Veneers are very beautiful and aesthetically pleasing restorations.

To talk more about your situation, you need to schedule an appointment and see the Dr. Dontsova or Dr. Khlevnoy, because the evaluation can be done only during the comprehensive examination.
