Whether due to a sport injury or nagging tooth decay, you’ve been dealing with chipped, imperfect teeth and you’re looking for options. We are ready to help you make an informed decision about your smile. However, perhaps you’re not sure whether veneers or crowns would be the right alternative for you. We always recommend that our patients weigh the positive and negatives of each procedure to come up with an option that suits their needs. If you’re interested in getting dental veneers in Andover, be sure to measure this treatment against dental crowns to see which one you should opt for.

Veneers ImageWhat Are You Fixing?

Veneers are a great option for patients who want to improve either the shape or color of their smiles. If there is crowding or spacing between teeth, veneers can also solve this issue. On the other hand, crowns are used when there is less tooth structure available. This often happens if you have had serious tooth decay. If crowns are your only option because of severe decay, have no fear. Crowns are a great option and have all the aesthetics positives that Andover porcelain veneers promise.

How’s Your Oral Health?

In order for you to get veneers in Andover, there are a few health-related criteria that you have to be able to check off before you’re considered a good candidate. If you have gum disease, diabetes, have TMJ or teeth grinding issues, or smoke more than a pack a day, then dental veneers are not a good option for your lifestyle. But if your mouth gets the seal of approval in health, veneers might be the perfect solution.

Consider Your Situation

Are you a tooth grinder or a heavy chewer? If so, crowns might win out over veneers. Since veneers are wafer thin pieces of porcelain, they do better in environments in which they only handle light force. However, if you’re pretty easy on your teeth, veneers in Andover might be the ticket.
