What Differentiates Crowns And Veneers?

What does the right smile care require? Because our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office provides different options for treatment, the answer can depend on what state a tooth is in when you visit with us. Through conservative cosmetic services, we can take on problems with dental damage as well as issues with tooth shape, size, and color while only making minor changes to your tooth structure. We can take these problems on with porcelain veneers, thin and durable shells that cover the fronts of teeth. To address more significant problems with injuries and dental decay, we can provide support with dental crowns that surround teeth and offer long-term protection.

Crowns And Veneers Can Offer Lasting Benefits

Both dental crowns and porcelain veneers can offer long-term benefits. For people who are looking to take on less serious issues, including those that are primarily cosmetic concerns, veneers can provide lasting changes that lead to noticeable, natural-looking improvements. We offer different types of dental crowns, including those that can imitate healthy enamel, when we take on more significant issues with teeth that are impacted by decay or damage.

Veneers Are Used to Address Cosmetic Issues

Cosmetic dentistry provides fixes for teeth that are misshapen, damaged, or flawed in other ways. Services that use porcelain veneers can take on significant issues in just a short time; after two appointments, you can have teeth that are misshapen, damaged, discolored, or otherwise flawed fixed in as little as two appointments. This is not your only option if you want to pursue cosmetic treatment. We can also discuss tooth bonding and contouring treatment to help patients make improvements to the way they look.

Crowns Can Improve Your Smile And Oral Health

Through treatment with custom crowns, we can provide protection to teeth affected by cavities that are too severe for dental fillings, and we can address more serious physical trauma. A crown provides full coverage when it caps a tooth, which can be important for structural support. This means you can still bite and chew in a way that feels natural. Depending on which tooth needs to be treated, we can recommend different material types. We do have the ability to cap a front tooth with a restoration that is made from a material that can match your enamel.
