Tooth veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells attached to the front surface of teeth, to enhance their appearance. Veneers are made of ceramic or composites and are fixed permanently. Crowns are used to cover larger surface of teeth and are made of zirconium, ceramic or metal.
We at Woodstock Dentistry use veneers for a number of different cosmetic concerns, including irregular teeth, chipped, discolored, broken, or smaller-than-average teeth. Crowns are used to restore more broken or damaged teeth and to prevent further damage.
People may get one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth. They might get between six to eight veneers in order to create an even, symmetrical smile. Most commonly, we apply eight veneers on top teeth to create a pleasant, even smile.
