Invasive types of porcelain veneers can be a benefit for some patients with buck teeth. If the teeth are sticking out too far, they need to be moved with braces or ground down. Sometimes crooked teeth are done with invasive types of porcelain veneers because some of the tooth structure needs to be ground down.
However, the other point of view is that too many dentists grind down too much tooth structure unnecessarily. If the patient has crooked teeth, some grinding on the teeth is necessary but the remaining teeth can be treated with non-invasive type of porcelain veneers.
Some dentists recommend porcelain crowns when the treatment can be completed with much less grinding. The non-invasive types of porcelain veneers are very good for patients with spaces or gaps between their teeth as long as the teeth are fairly well aligned.
The key element is choosing the best dentist rather than the best type of veneer. The best cosmetic dentist will know which one is best for each patient but, if the dentist recommends the invasive type of veneer, it would be wise to hear if another dentist would agree. Dentists can only recommend procedures within their own limitations so it is always a good idea to see a highly experienced dentist that can offer your choices.
