The veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain that is custom made and permanently attached to your tooth. There are numerous reasons; we would recommend porcelain veneers to improve the look of your teeth. The veneer is much thinner than a crown and our dentist only needs to remove a small amount of the tooth surface. We will match the porcelain to your existing teeth so it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
A sports injury or other type of accident, leading to a chipped front tooth Or, perhaps you have always lived with a gap between your teeth, are some reasons a veneer can help improve your smile.

In addition, porcelain veneers can be used after a root canal to restore the appearance and function of the tooth.
Both are made from porcelain however; a crown is used to cover the entire tooth while a veneer is just attached to the front of the tooth. The veneer is much thinner than a crown and the dentist only needs to remove a small amount of the tooth. With a crown, the dentist must remove more of the tooth enamel.
