Greater Knoxville Smile Design & Family Dentistry FAQ
Q: What is a veneer?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, very much as a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural color 'composite' material is used instead of porcelain.
Q: When would I need a veneer?
Veneers can improve the color, shape and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the required color to improve a single discolored or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact again-the porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth with a thicker section replacing the broken part. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
Q: How long will a veneer last?
Veneers can last for many years, but they can chip or break, just as your own teeth can. Your dentist will advise you how long each individual veneer may last. Small chips can be repaired, or a new veneer fitted if necessary.
Q: What is a Crown?
Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Crowns are sometimes also known as 'caps.'
Q: Why would I need a crown?
There are a number of reasons. For instance: the tooth may have been weakened by having a very large filling. You may have discolored fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth. You may have had a root filling which will require a crown to protect it.
Q: Does it hurt to have a tooth prepared for a crown?
No. A local anaesthetic is used and the preparation should feel no different to that of a filling. If the tooth does not have a nerve, and a post crown is being prepared, then local anaesthetic may not be needed.
