Porcelain veneers are an esthetic treatment option similar to a crown. Like a crown, a veneer can be used to create more ideal shape, colour and alignment of teeth and improve the smile’s appearance. While a crown encompasses the whole tooth, a veneer is cemented to the front of the tooth only.
A veneer is an esthetic option that can be used for those who are looking to improve the look of their smile and don’t already have heavily restored or broken down teeth. Because the veneer is typically placed only over the front surface of the tooth, it only requires removal of a small amount of enamel and therefore doesn’t compromise the integrity of the tooth. A crown is typically a better option for a patient who has already lost tooth structure due to decay or wear.
