What Are Crowns and Veneers, and When Should You Get Them?

Aug 25, 2017

If you only think of the dentist when your teeth hurt or when it’s time for a cleaning, you may be missing out on a variety of dental services that could improve your smile. Crowns and/or veneers offer a pain-free way to make your teeth look flawless so your smile really stands out. If you’re interested in covering any tooth imperfections with a crown or veneer, check out the main differences between the two and how each one can help your smile.

What Crowns Can Do for Your Teeth

When you have one or more severely decayed or damaged teeth, you might end up needing one or more crowns. Crowns are typically tooth colored or gold, strengthen your teeth, and improve their appearance. This is because they are designed to look and feel just like your real teeth.

People need crowns for various reasons, including extensive decay, teeth grinding, cracked fillings, or trauma. Regardless of the reason you may need a crown, you can rest assured knowing that this procedure is quick and painless. Here at Meadowmont Dentistry in Chapel Hill, NC, you can look forward to getting a beautiful crown that matches your other teeth, so you can smile with confidence.

How Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Veneers are a little different from crowns. Veneers are much more conservative and only cover the front surface of your teeth.

The main reason people want veeners is to improve the appearance of their smile. So, if you are unhappy with the color, shape, size, spacing, or alignment of your teeth, veneers will help revitalize your smile, so you can proudly show it off anywhere you go.

At Meadowmont Dentistry, we offer customized, natural looking porcelain veneers that can help you have the smile you’ve always wanted.

If your teeth are damaged in any way, or if you have been thinking about a whiter, healthier smile, Dr. Corey Wilson or Dr. Scott Winokur can guide you toward the option that’s right for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our friendly staff.
