General Information about Dental Crowns and Dental Veneers

Posted .

Are you prepared for an advanced tooth restoration such as dental crowns or dental veneers? Deciding which treatment is best for you doesn’t have to be problematic. If your tooth enamel has been damaged or if the tooth split or fractured, a dental crown is often the better choice as it can help protect the tooth much better than a veneer can. If a tooth has only suffered a stain or discoloration, a dental veneer may be the better choice, as it can help display a much better and customizable look for the front of the tooth.

Dental crowns are crafted to encapsulate teeth for an enhanced look that can not only improve the look of teeth to your desire, but they also provide an extra level of protection for each tooth. With effective care, a standard dental crown can last for a period of two decades up to a lifetime of normal use.

Dental veneers are highly customizable shells that are effective at enhancing and addressing the specifics of a tooth by covering up and concealing the fronts of a tooth. Dental veneers are well known for their penchant to outfit people entire smile makeovers and turn below-average smiles into movie-star quality masterpieces. With normal wear and tear, a typical dental veneer can last over a full decade before a replacement may be needed.
