If I have two porcelain crowns can I still get porcelain veneers?
You can get porcelain veneers even if you have porcelain crowns. However, you will not be able to remove the porcelain crowns and replace them porcelain veneers. The reason for that is dental crowns require that too much tooth structure be removed for their placement. The crowns cover your entire tooth. There is hardly any tooth preparation with a veneer and it only deals with the front and edges of your teeth.
So, the next question you need to ask is how will you get your new veneers to match your crowns. If you are happy with the color, size, and shape of your porcelain crowns, then you can have your dentist match your new veneers to the existing crowns. However, if there is anything you want to change about your crowns, it is best to get it done at the same time as your veneers so they will match perfectly.
It is also important that you go to an expert cosmetic dentist to get these done. You want someone with a lot of post-graduate training, as well as an artistic touch. Otherwise you won’t be happy with the results. My suggestion is for you to go to the mynewsmile.com website. They recommend highly qualified cosmetic dentists in each state.
