What are the similarities between Veneers and Crowns?
Posted on 10/25/2021 by Dr. Saklofsky
A variety of variables can influence the size, location, and color of your teeth. Teeth that are uneven or discolored might make you uncomfortable with your appearance. Luckily, whatever the reason for your misalignment or discoloration, there is a remedy for you. Veneers and crowns are excellent in aligning, restoring teeth shape, size, and strength, and upgrading your aesthetic.
Crowns and veneers have a lot in common. Both can enhance the appearance of your smile and, given proper care, can last decades or more. Both need the dentist to grind down the surface of the teeth being treated. This pretreatment provides a place for the additional material. It also forms a firm, permanent connection between both the tooth and the veneer or crown.
Why cover teeth with veneer and crown
Aside from preventative checkups and cleanings, the most common treatments offered by dentists are dental crowns and veneers. They will not only reestablish the functionality of your teeth, but they may also blend nicely with your grin. These incredible covers can replace teeth that are worn, damaged or even treated with root canals, and they will restore your confidence in smiling and snapping photos.
When do you need crown and veneer?
Dental crowns and veneers are highly flexible in dentistry and may be used for a wide range of procedures. Dentists commonly use crowns and veneers to repair weak, rotting teeth. This keeps the tooth together and protects it from further fracture. They can help to protect teeth that have been worn down by grinding. These beautiful coverings are very useful when a dental filling becomes old, discolored, or broken.
If you have an unpleasant gap, chips, or misaligned teeth, these fantastic covers are a must-have. Don't be intimidated by the color or shape of your teeth when veneers and crowns are an option. For additional information about veneers or crowns, feel free to contact us!
