Porcelain Veneers or Dental Crowns ?

June 5, 2017

If you follow the Ocean Front Dental Blog, you will know that dental crowns are custom made and then bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can last between 15 and 20 years if you take good care, but do require some removal of the natural tooth while dental crowns require more tooth structure to be removed to make way for the cap or dental crown.

What are Veneers for your Teeth?

Dental veneers, also called porcelain veneers, are thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. Teeth veneers are custom made to match the rest of your smile, are strong, and will give you a natural smile.

No Touch-Veneers

No touch-veneers require very little preparation, and unlike conventional porcelain veneers do not require drilling or much removal of the enamel on your teeth. These types of porcelain veneers or prepless veneers will give you a beautiful smile that you can be proud of.

Lumineers®

Just like no touch-veneers, Lumineers® are prepless veneers that require little if any enamel removal. This means that if you are unhappy with your teeth veneers, you can have them removed. Conventional porcelain veneers are permanent and cannot be removed.

Dental Veneers Procedures

The conventional dental veneers procedure requires two dental appointments. The first visit requires some removal of the enamel on your teeth to make way for tooth veneers. Once your enamel has been removed, Dr. Nick Seddon may or may not fit you for temporary teeth veneers.

During your second tooth veneers dental appointment Dr. Seddon will check your new porcelain veneers for fit and color, once satisfied, your veneers will be bonded into place for a permanent and secure fit. Dental veneers are one of the most popular procedures when it comes to cosmetic dentistry.

Dental Veneer Cost

Dental veneers Vancouver range in price. You can expect to pay between $1,200 and $2,000 per tooth for teeth veneers. Of course, this depends on the type of veneers you choose whether you opt for prepless veneers, such as no-touch veneers or Lumineers®, or conventional porcelain veneers.
