Treat your smile to summer bliss with dental veneers and crowns. Both veneers and crowns are designed to improve the look and function of your smile by changing the appearance of your teeth one at a time. Although both services are directly attached to your teeth, they both do so in differing ways.

Dental veneers are tooth restorations designed to only bind to the fronts of teeth, leaving the backs uncovered. Even with dental veneers, the tooth must still be cleaned and cared for daily, as it is still possible for tooth decay to occur. With ideal care, dental veneers can easily last over a decade before they need to be replaced.

Dental crowns are tooth restorations designed to bind to all sides of a tooth, forming a shell that fully encapsulates the tooth. Dental crowns are highly effective at preventing further damage to the tooth, including tooth decay. However, dental crowns should still be cleaned and cared for. With the proper care, dental crowns can easily last over two decades, and in some cases, a lifetime of normal wear and tear.

Dental crowns and dental veneers may be the cosmetic dentistry services you need.
