This is a new series about dental veneers to discuss the difference between a dental veneer and a dental crown. What is a dental veneer? What is a dental crown?

  • The history of dental veneers
  • Different types of dental veneers

A- Porcelain dental veneers: Porcelain veneers are the gold standard for an award winning smile makeover.

B- Composite resin veneers: Composite veneers are made from resin. Although they aren’t as strong as porcelain, composite veneers are still a great product and typically cost a little less.

  • Indications of Dental Veneers:
  • Severely discolored teeth that can’t be whitened to the desired shade
  • Damaged teeth from trauma
  • A desire for a brand-new smile in a very short period of time for an event or role
  • Contraindications of Dental Veneers
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Big Cavities
  • Advanced untreated gum disease
  • Functional issues with severe malocclusion (crooked teeth)
  • if your natural teeth have significant decay or your overall oral health is poor, you might not want to look into dental veneers. Veneers do not actually address issues with oral health; they are 100% cosmetic. Advanced tooth decay (untreated cavities) and untreated periodontitis (gum disease) will both continue to progress, even if you cover them with veneers.
  • Cost : depends on the material used, the dentist experience and the dental process as well as the location
