Can veneers or Crowns be reshaped after placement

Dr. Anthony Mobasser is an expert in reshaping veneers or crowns. The cosmetic dentist must have an artistic eye to match the smile to the patient face, using Micro Aesthetics and macro Aesthetics technique. The reshaping of the veneer or crowns also depends on what kind of porcelain was used, for example, Feldspathic vs. Emax vs. Zirconia porcelain. Each porcelain has a different strength. You might need a full evaluation before reshaping by taking X-rays and having Dr. Mobasser examine you. Reshaping veneers or crowns depends on the preparation of the tooth underneath by the dentist who delivered the crowns or veneers to you and how much room is left on the porcelain for reshaping. Dr. Mobasser will need to see your teeth and smile to determine if new reshaping can be done. Our expert cosmetic dentist will then go over the pros and cons of the procedure. Reshaping veneers or crowns need to be done meticulously. In General, once Dental Veneers in porcelain or Dental crowns are bonded permanently to your tooth, it is tough to reshape and, in most cases, must be redone if, unfortunately, you do not like the color or shape. Your dentist can reshape Porcelain Veneers or crowns. However, the smooth surface will never have the glaze or the polish as the original, and you might not like the unglazed surface. In almost all cases, the dentist will show you the veneer or the crown in your mouth, and once the patient approves it, the dentist will permanently cement or bond the veneer. You need to check the color and shape beforehand.

There are a few exceptions in which patients want to reshape the edge of their porcelain veneers, maybe too long, or make the corners more rounded; this can be done and accomplished by an expert dentist. The dentist can not add porcelain back on the veneer or crown if too much is taken off. Also, reshaping can be done if the veneer is made of composite and not porcelain.
