More people than ever are choosing to undergo cosmetic dentistry to improve their appearance or to help with existing problems. Cosmetic dentistry can completely change your smile. One of the most common ways of improving the look of teeth is by having crowns or veneers, here’s a look into what they are and how they can be used to improve a patients confidence:
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. It is fitted over the remaining part of a prepared or ‘filed-down’ tooth to make it stronger, giving it a natural shape and look.
On the other hand, dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or lumineers) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size, alignment or length. Veneers can be used to achieve a classically beautiful smile.
There are a few reasons someone may require crowns or veneers aside from aesthetics. Weak teeth may benefit from dental crowns as they can restore an already broken tooth or support a tooth with a large filling when there’s not a lot of the tooth left. Some patients may have been experiencing problems when eating with worn front teeth, which crowns can strengthen.
Some other reasons someone may consider dental crowns or veneers include:
Veneers:- The dentist will begin by taking moulds of your teeth, and will then remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth’s surface. The next moulds will be used to give the technician a template to work on and to illustrate how your teeth meet, and customise the veneers to the shape of your teeth and to fit perfectly with your bite, ensuring the best results possible. Temporary veneers will then be placed, and within 2 weeks the dentist will fit your custom-made veneers in Warrington for your new and improved smile!
Crowns:- The process is very similar to veneer preparation, except more enamel is removed to cover the whole tooth surface. This enhances strength and function, as well as aesthetics.
For many, crowns and veneers are a go-to option when wanting to achieve a picture perfect smile. Some patients may be embarrassed of the condition of their teeth, wanting them to be straighter or whiter. Crowns and veneers can help them feel comfortable and confident in their new smile. So, if you’re searching for a way to achieve a straight, natural smile – then these treatments may be a solution to consider.
