If you teeth need to be restored, you should consult with a Tyler dentist about the different teeth restoration options that would be appropriate for your situation. There are several teeth restoration options available and some are more suited for certain types of dental problems than others. Two popular and common dental restoration procedures are veneers and dental crowns.
Dental veneers and crowns are excellent teeth restoration methods but they are done very different reasons. While they both help to improve a patient’s smile, the type of dental problem a patient has would determine which would be the best option. Veneers would be a good option for a patient who has gaps, chips, misshapen teeth or tooth stains. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are made from tooth colored materials. They are very natural in appearance and are placed on the front side of the teeth that need restoring. They are sometimes used for teeth whitening as an alternative to the bleaching procedure. Crowns, which are also called caps, are used for worse conditions. They are commonly used for the following reasons: to restore the function and appearance of a tooth after a restorative procedure such as a root canal has been performed, when tooth decay is so severe that large portions of the tooth must be removed, to attach bridges, to cover implants & to prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. As you can see, dental veneers and crowns have different uses and won’t be appropriate for every patient. If you need teeth restoration, you should consult with a professional Tyler dentist to find out if crowns or veneers would be the right solution for you.
