Curious to learn more about crowns and veneers? Your top 5 FAQs answered by the Dental Surgery

06/08/2020

When you smile, you are showing the world that you are confident, happy and comfortable in the given situation. And, as research shows that when you meet a person for the first time they will have made a judgement of you in the first 5 seconds, it is important that your smile is a good one!

Of course, it can be a bit of a struggle in the modern world to maintain your teeth; whitening gels that you can purchase from a pharmacy rarely do the trick and whitening visits to your dentist can prove to be time-consuming. Luckily, there are an array of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures which can be used to spruce up your smile; everything from whitening to creating a more symmetrical smile can now be done in minimal time!

So, when you come to the Dental Surgery to spruce up your smile, depending on your clinical presentation, our team may recommend crowns and veneers in Burnham to help you achieve supreme confidence with your smile. As these are both prosthetics that can be custom fitted and colour matched, they will blend in with your surrounding teeth seamlessly, creating a more natural and symmetrical smile. Perfect!

Have some questions? Of course, you do! Here, our team has answered 5 of the most commonly asked questions about crowns and veneers in Burnham. Enjoy!

Is there a difference between the two?

In short, yes there is. A crown is designed to cover the entire tooth, whereas a veneer is designed to cover the front. Therefore, both crowns and veneers in Burnham can offer a real cosmetic advantage to someone who has yellowed, worn down or asymmetrical teeth.

Are these procedures uncomfortable?

No, they are not. While having a crown fitted may take slightly longer, our dental team will always ensure that your mouth is numbed during the preparation process. However, as both a crown and a veneer are fitted to your natural tooth with dental cement, the fitting and the aftermath should not cause any discomfort. If you notice any pain, contact our team immediately!

Does the fitting take a long time?

On average, having both a crown or a veneer fitted can take two visits. As mentioned before, a crown will require the tooth to be prepared, which typically involves some filing down and a veneer will require our team to get an impression of your teeth to create a custom-fitted covering.

Can a veneer be used to cover decay?

No; while a crown can be used to restore the strength to a decayed tooth, a veneer is a thin porcelain covering which is used solely for cosmetic purposes. If you have a tooth with a filling that you want to improve the appearance of, talk to our team about your options.

Will they last a long time?

With proper care and hygiene, both a dental crown and a veneer can last up to and over 20 years, making both options superior to traditional whitening techniques. Perfect!
