Could crowns and veneers in Burnham improve the appearance of your smile?

06/07/2020

Dental crowns have been present within the field of dentistry for many years, and can, therefore, serve many purposes. Crowns are commonly used within the field of restorative dental care in order to replace a singular, multiple, or possibly even a whole row of missing teeth within the mouth.

Did you know?

In addition to the replacement of teeth, dental crowns can also be used to restore a fragmented or damaged tooth, or a tooth that has previously been affected by fillings or root canal work (also commonly referred to within the field of dentistry as endodontics). Despite crowns having proven as effective for a multitude of purposes many patients are now opting for porcelain veneers.

How do crowns and veneers in Burnham compare?

Many patients may feel conflicted when deciding between a porcelain veneer or a dental crown to help restore both the physical appearance and the function of their teeth, which is why our team of dental healthcare professionals are here to help! In regards to their similarities, both treatments work to restore both the function and the aesthetic appearance of the patients’ smile, despite this however they are separated by one key difference. Porcelain veneers are glued to the surface of the teeth using a special dental adhesive, the caps are designed to cover the front of the tooth, dental crowns, however, are used to cover the whole of the tooth (and may, therefore, be more suitable to protect more severely decayed teeth).

Finding out more about crowns and veneers in Burnham

At our clinic within Buckinghamshire we strive to treat every dental case as completely unique, our collaborative patient-centred approach ensures that our patients’ receive a tailor-made dental plan that works perfectly for their smile. Our team understands that many patients’ may feel conflicted between differing dental treatments which is why they may wish to know more information about porcelain veneers!

What to expect from the porcelain veneer treatment process..

Many individuals may be familiar with the term ‘veneers’ despite this however they may be unsure of how they produce effective results, and may therefore wish to know what to expect from the treatment process at our clinic. Initially, the tooth is prepared for the wafer-thin porcelain cap (this may include filing or shaving) once the area is ready a special dental glue is used to securely adhere the veneer onto the surface of the affected tooth.

What are the benefits?

Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who wish for a non-invasive and minimal procedure that does not require major dental surgery. In addition, dental veneers at our clinic can be lightened and therefore custom made in order to blend in and produce a natural-looking smile. Lastly, veneers are considered as ‘multipurpose’, many patients may initially believe that porcelain veneers are only suitable for patients who are suffering from a fragmented or stained smile, they can however also be used to close tiny gaps between the teeth which orthodontics are unable to fix.
