Improving Your Confidence With Dental Crowns And Veneers

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:

What Are Crowns And Veneers?

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.

Benefits of Crown & Veneers

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:

  • Helping with discoloration
  • Fixing a chipped or broken tooth
  • Improving misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
  • To close gaps between teeth

How Does The Process Work?

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.

Are Crowns or Veneers Right For Me?

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.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
