Crowns and veneers are the perfect way to reclaim your smile. Here’s a brief rundown of both, and the services offered at NorthShore Dental’s Paradise Point.
A veneer is a thin shell that is bonded to the front of the tooth. Placing veneers requires the removal of a small amount of enamel so that the veneers fit properly and look natural without altering your bite.
Dental crowns are also a type of porcelain shell, but designed to fit over most of your tooth. This allows them to fix a number of functionality issues along with cosmetic ones.
Veneers can be good for cosmetic restorations that don’t affect the functionality of your teeth, including stained discolored teeth, minor chips and cracks, worn or damaged enamel, and eroded or widely spaced teeth.
Dental crowns can fix all of these problems, but as they cover most or all of the surfaces of the tooth they can also assist the functionality of your tooth – like broken or cracked teeth, trauma or decay. Crowns are also useful for building up teeth that are causing problems with your bite.
