Crowns, Veneers and Why They Are Needed

Posted .

Are you in the market for a cosmetic dentistry treatment that will vastly enhance the look of your smile? Two wonderful varieties of tooth restoration treatments are dental veneers and dental crowns. Both place a heavy emphasis on improving the look of your smile by crafting a shell to change and alter the look of your teeth. Depending on your preference and oral health needs, crowns and veneers both have their advantages:

Advantages of dental crowns:
– Dental crowns can guard teeth that have been split, cracked, fractured, excessively worn down, or stained and discolored.
– Dental crowns can cover and protect previous tooth restoration treatments including dental implants, fillings, and root canals.
– Dental crowns can support teeth that have been very badly harmed and otherwise may need to be extracted.

Advantages of dental veneers:
– When dental veneers are placed, less tooth enamel needs to be removed from teeth in comparison to the removal amount for setting dental crowns.
– Dental veneers can be used to enhance the shape, size, color, and look of a tooth.
– Dental veneers are very thin and easily modifiable to give you a movie-star quality smile.
– Dental veneers can also be helpful with alignment problems and minor malocclusions, including gaps or spaces between teeth.
– Dental veneers can cover the fronts of teeth that have been badly stained or discolored.
