Kiss an unattractive smile goodbye with these three dental solutions. See which one will suit your smile best.

What You Need to Know about Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns can fix a wide variety of both functional and cosmetic dental problems. Like porcelain veneers, crowns are custom-created in a dental laboratory, which causes them to demand more dental appointments than teeth bonding. They also cost about the same amount as veneers. The main differences between crowns and veneers are that crowns cover the entire tooth and are ideal for restorative, as well as minor cosmetic procedures. Porcelain crowns are recommended for many dental issues because they offer these benefits:

  • Provide both restorative and minor cosmetic results
  • Look very natural
  • Made to match the color of your natural teeth
  • Can conceal an unattractive, stained, or poorly-shaped tooth
  • Perfect to mask a dental implant
  • Can hide a large filling
  • Repair a fractured tooth
  • Cover the whole tooth

The Dental Details on Porcelain Veneers

Teeth veneers are usually requested and recommended to repair cosmetic dental concerns. As opposed to teeth bonding which is performed on the actual tooth, veneers must be crafted in a special dental laboratory and later placed on the teeth. Porcelain veneers can also be more costly than bonding due to the extra preparation and materials. But teeth veneers provide outstanding cosmetic improvements that can make the extra cost worthwhile. See why teeth veneers are so popular. They:

  • Offer the most dramatic cosmetic improvements
  • Enhance the appearance of your overall smile
  • Look extremely natural
  • Match the exact color of the surrounding teeth
  • Improve the color and shape of unattractive teeth
  • Cover the front of the tooth

Let’s Talk about Teeth Bonding

The quickest, easiest, and most affordable dental option is teeth bonding. This procedure differs from porcelain crowns and veneers because the bonding is done directly on the tooth, instead of in a dental laboratory for later placement. Teeth bonding is recommended for these reasons:

  • Ideal for restorative dentistry
  • Least expensive option
  • Demands little or no preparation
  • Fills in gaps in teeth
  • Corrects minor cosmetic issues
  • Faster procedure than teeth veneers or crowns
  • Only requires one visit
