Crowns & Veneers
CROWNS BY PREMIER DENTAL IN TUPELO.
WE CREATE HAPPY, HEALTHY SMILES
Both crowns and veneers give patients gorgeous, whiter, straighter smiles, but there are some differences in their makeup and usage. Crowns can be used for either aesthetic/cosmetic dentistry or for restorative dentistry. Crowns are often used as a “cap” to protect a tooth that has had extensive decay removed, is broken or abscessed and now needs a protective covering. Damage to a tooth can happen for several reasons including decay, injury or wear over time. Dental crowns are cemented into place over the tooth and completely cover all portions of the tooth.
Although both crowns and veneers are both typically made of beautiful porcelain, veneers do not go all the way around the tooth. Veneers only cover the front tooth surface while leaving the rest of the tooth intact. Veneers conceal cracks, chips, stains, tooth shape, color and other imperfections. Veneers may not be an option for you if you have extensive decay, gum disease or other oral health issues until these issues are addressed.
Both crowns and veneers are permanent and last many years with proper care and maintenance. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile or are interested in restoring oral health, talk to one our dentists about the services we offer to help you reach your goals.
PORCELIN VENEERS BY COLUMBUS BRIGHT SMILES.
What are veneers?
A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell of porcelain that bonds to the front of a tooth. We can use veneers to change the shape, color, size and symmetry of your teeth and smile, as well as mask any internal staining your teeth may have that cannot be reversed by whitening. Porcelain is our material of choice because it replicates human enamel most naturally.
Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?
Candidates for veneers include those with worn, chipped, spaced or discolored teeth, as well as those who just want a more beautiful smile! Veneers are a conservative option, maintaining as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Do you find yourself smiling close-lipped in pictures, trying to laugh without showing your teeth, or feeling embarrassed in social situations because of your smile? Veneers can be life changing–call us today for a consultation!
