Oral Health Essentials: Dental Crowns and Dental Veneers

Posted .

Are you interested in having a tooth restoration treatment such as dental crowns or dental veneers? Although they are both terrific forms of cosmetic dentistry and ideal tooth restoration treatments, which one is right for you? Considering your options is often the best course of action.

Although dental crowns are much more valuable for your oral health than veneers are, veneers often require much less tooth enamel removal to hold them in place. Contingent upon your oral health hygiene habits and the avoidance of unhealthy risks, both services can last a very long time and give you a better smile for a better future.

When deciding on a cosmetic treatment between the two, the important question you should be asking is if you better suited for a crown or a veneer. Dental crowns are caps placed atop teeth to help extend the life of injured teeth and protect future damage from occurring. Dental veneers are small, thin, and durable shells that are bonded and attached directly to the fronts of teeth to help achieve the smile you desire. Speak with your dentist to determine which service is right for you.
