What if I have a crown, can I still get veneers?
I have a dental crown on the tooth adjacent to one of my front teeth, but I want to get porcelain veneers, my dentist said that makes it impossible to get veneers? Is it really not possible? Is there any way around it?

Are you certain your dentist didn’t say you can’t have a porcelain veneer on the tooth with the crown instead of you can’t have any porcelain veneers?
If he did say you can’t have any porcelain veneers, he’s certainly wrong. Maybe he doesn’t really know how to do the procedure. If that’s the case, I wouldn’t pressure him. You’d end up with a disaster.
What I would do is find an expert cosmetic dentist. They can do porcelain veneers on any tooth you want except the one that has the dental crown. For that one, you’ll need to have another crown placed. It will need to be an all porcelain crown. Other wise it won’t look as natural.
As I said before, you’ll want an expert cosmetic dentist. One easy way to find one is to get on the mynewsmile.com website. They recommend cosmetic dentists in each state and can help you find one that will give you a gorgeous smile.
