Veneers and Crowns Q & A

What are veneers?

If you’ve ever wished you had different teeth, veneers are for you. These are extremely thin porcelain shells that your provider at Los Gatos Dental Care bonds to the front of your tooth. 

People see the veneer — which is custom-created for your mouth — rather than your tooth. The ease of this treatment makes veneers an ideal way to correct a wide range of dental issues.

Los Gatos Dental Care also offers Lumineers®. These veneers are so thin that the tooth preparation required for them is minimal, meaning you spend less time in their office and more time enjoying your transformed smile. 

What are crowns?

A crown is a cap that sits over the top of a damaged tooth. Made out of porcelain, it’s colored and shaped to match your surrounding teeth exactly, giving you a full, even smile. Crowns are designed to restore not just your tooth’s appearance, but also its structural integrity. 

After a tooth has endured extensive damage or decay, a crown is useful in protecting it while giving you a reliable means to chew your food. 

To let the crown fit flush in your mouth, Los Gatos Dental Care prepares your tooth by removing a small portion of your enamel. This makes space for the crown. They then take a 3D scan of your prepared tooth and customize a crown to fit precisely over it. Once your crown is ready, you return to the office to have it bonded in place. 

When would I need veneers or crowns? 

You might need a crown when your tooth has suffered extensive damage or decay. The crown keeps the tooth strong and restores its full shape so you have a solid chewing surface and so that none of your other teeth shift out of position into any available space in your smile. 

A crown is an ideal way to restore a cracked or chipped tooth so you can enjoy a full smile.

Veneers are another option for transforming the appearance of your smile. People often choose them to cover a tooth or series of teeth with major cosmetic issues. Some reasons people choose veneers include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth that appear too short
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
