Do Teeth Get Shaved for Veneers?
I have a small space between my two front teeth. I wore braces for a while and now the space has come back open. The orthodontist told me that I might need to get it bonded, and referred me to a dentist who performs that. My insurance will not pay for the two veneers that I need. The dentist told me that I could get something like a veneer, but not a crown. He would shave down only 20% of the teeth then put a thin layer of porcelain over my teeth. What is this? I am getting confused as it sounds like a crown to me. Please help!
