Oral Hygiene Topic: Dental Crowns and Dental Veneers

Posted .

With the wide assortment of dental procedures, services, and treatments available in modern dentistry, the options for improving your smile are now more varied than ever. This is simply because of the sheer number of high-quality services that can be fine-tuned and customized directly to your oral health needs. Two of the best treatments for tooth restorations are dental crowns and dental veneers.

A dental crown works by introducing a cap or crown atop a damaged or unsightly tooth with the purpose of completely hiding the tooth above the gum line. Not only with the tooth be out of view, but it will be well guarded within the crown. Dental crowns are best used for damaged or broken teeth, including teeth that have been shattered into bits. With dental crowns, the complete functionality of the tooth may once again be available.

A dental veneer works by placing a casing on the front of a tooth that is both strong and sturdy, yet thin and sleek. By removing a minimal amount of tooth enamel, the veneer can be safely attached to the tooth you wish to cover for a lasting hold that will withstand the wear and tear of chewing and eating. Dental veneers can be modified to achieve the desired look and color shade your smile needs.
