Dr. Dennis Wells DDS has been using veneers for years and was one of the pioneers in the use of prepless veneers. He is a strong advocate for porcelain veneers because he has repeatedly seen the amazing difference it can make for his patients.
Dental Veneers vs. Dental Crowns: If your goal is to beautify your smile and don’t have decay or disease, then dental veneers are probably the right choice for you. A dental crown is less conservative and will cover your entire tooth surface. Think of dental crowns like a football helmet while dental veneers are more like a hockey mask that only covers the face.
Dental Veneers vs. Teeth Whitening: For many individuals, the staining on their teeth is so deep and dark (or light) that teeth whitening won’t work. This can be due to certain foods or habits but can sometimes be the side effects of antibiotics or too much fluoride. Dental veneers are great at masking stains, leaving the patient with a beautiful, white smile. For even better results, we sometimes recommend whitening your teeth before placing the veneers to ensure that the stains will not be visible.
Dental Veneers vs. Orthodontics: That’s right, veneers can help you avoid orthodontics all together. If your teeth aren’t severely crooked, you may be a candidate for straightening your smile with dental veneers alone. No metal required!
Veneers are a great option for your cosmetic dental concerns and it is a good idea to discuss with your cosmetic dentist if they are right for you.
