If you are struggling with how your smile looks, you actually have lots of great solutions at your fingertips!
Cosmetic dentistry consists of many amazing treatments that can provide stunning results for your smile, from subtle and non-invasive, to huge smile makeovers that can completely change your smile's appearance.
In this article, let’s look over two very popular types of cosmetic treatments: veneers and cosmetic crowns.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that get bonded to the front surface of your teeth. As a result, a veneer can completely change the way your tooth looks, and address:
To get veneers, the dentist needs to shave off a bit of the tooth’s natural enamel to create a rough surface. This allows the veneers to properly bond to the tooth and remain in place, but it also makes getting veneers an irreversible procedure.
Cosmetic crowns are dental caps designed to cover a natural tooth that’s been damaged. The cap is designed to match the patient’s tooth color, size, and shape, and is used as a restorative and cosmetic procedure.
Crowns can be made from a lot of materials, such as porcelain, metal, or zirconia, all of which can provide long-term restorations.
If you have trouble choosing between veneers and cosmetic crowns, we recommend seeing Dr. Dallin Birch for a consultation. Based on a thorough oral assessment, you can unlock your most optimal path to healthy and stunning teeth!
