Can a dentist put a veneer over a crown?

Can a dentist put a veneer over a crown?

It depends: Depending on the material used to make the initial crown, it can be successful if it is an all ceramic crown and relatively new. I've done it after a patient refused to have me remove their chipped all ceramic crown. They understood there was no guarantee but 8+ years later it still looks great. So, yes, it is possible but the dentist has to understand the limitations. A new crown is best. ...Read more

Yes: If the porcelain on the old crown (cap) is chipped assuming there is no recurrent decay, the porcelain can be prepared, an impression is taken, the veneer is fabricated and bonded to the old crown.

Can a dentist shave down my capped tooth and put a veneer over it?

It is possible: Depending on the age & condition of the crown it may be possible to put a veneer over the old crown to match the new veneers exactly, but many times it is more prudent to put on a new crown, made by the same lab that is making the new veneers. There are some challenges to matching the color exactly when you are working with a combination of veneers and crowns. ...Read more

I asked for whiter veneers and got yellower ones instead! Is my dentist at fault and shouldn't he be obliged to correct the mistake?

Should I see a dentist to remove my porcelain veneers?

Should I see a dentist to remove my porcelain veneers?

Yes, but why?: If you're set on having them removed, you should see a professional to have them taken off instead of doing it yourself. But the key question is why do you want them removed. If there was significant tooth structure removed during the preparation, you'll need to cover them with either porcelain or composite resin and only a dentist can do this. Leaving them uncovered may look more unsightly. ...Read more

Had veneers fitted, returned due to black dot, dentist drilled surface of veneer. Now that part not shiny. Has he removed protective glaze/coating?

No he has not: The fact is the surface of a veneer is shiny because it is either polished, glazed or both. Using a drill can cause that 'polish' to go away. However, by polishing it well, it can become just as shiny as before. But don't worry, because it does not weaken or damage the veneer at all ...Read more

Why are veneers usually more expensive then crowns? Are crowns best for molars and veneers for your?

Why are veneers usually more expensive then crowns? Are crowns best for molars and veneers for your?

I: I agree with dr. Mcleod. My fees for crowns and veneers are about the same.

To answer your question about molars, they are the teeth that do the grinding and they get alot of wear and tear. I've done modified veneers on molars, which are called 'onlays". They cover the outside and the biting surface of the tooth. Strong, esthetic, and very conservative in amount of tooth structure removed.

Hope this info helps. ...Read more

Can porcelain veneers be whitened? Just had porcelain veneers put on......2 weeks ago....I wish they were whiter.....

No.: I am sorry you already are wishing they were whiter. That is a shame. To make them whiter they would need to be redone. Redoing the veneers takes just as much effort as the first time, perhaps more of an effort. I am sorry to tell you. ...Read more
