What are veneers used for?
Veneers can be used to restore a broken or cracked tooth, and they are made to protect the tooth and blend in seamlessly with the rest of the smile. They are often used to restore the front teeth that show when a patient smiles. They can also be used to provide patients with a complete smile makeover. Each veneer can be customized to the exact size, shape, and color that the patient desires, and they are often used to achieve a perfect Hollywood-inspired smile. Porcelain is a very strong material, which means these treatments last for decades.
Should I get a veneer or a crown?
It depends on your specific wants and needs, but in general, patients have crowns placed on their molars, and they use veneers to restore their front teeth. Dental crowns are not customized to the degree that veneers are, but they still blend in with the surrounding molars, and they are more cost-effective. For teeth that are going to be seen frequently, durable porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who need one or more front teeth to be protected and look consistent with their other teeth.
Are veneers permanent?
Traditional porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment. This is because the teeth must undergo some preparation before the veneers can be placed, which involves removing some of the tooth enamel. Once enamel is removed, the teeth must be protected by veneers or another restoration. Our team at Southern Dental Fort Smith works one-on-one with each patient to ensure that their custom veneers will provide them with their ideal smile so that they never want their veneers removed!
