Dental Crowns vs. Dental Veneers
Dental crowns have long been the only solution for weakened broken teeth until the advent of dental veneers. Dental veneers offer a life-like beautiful appearance when compared to traditional dental crowns. For beautiful well-aligned smile, you may want to consider dental veneers.
Dental crowns are still a great option for those who do not qualify or wish to have veneers. At the practice of Dr. Mark Sweeney, you will find CAD CAM porcelain crowns, offering a natural appearance when compared to traditional dental crowns. Still, dental veneers may be the right option for you.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin translucent sheets that are bonded onto the front side of your tooth or teeth. Veneers may be used after dental bonding to protect a weakened tooth structure. Dental veneers can be used for chips, cracks and gaps. Dental veneers can be used to treat severely discolored teeth. Dental veneers are a no pain solution for many abnormalities of your teeth. So, dental veneers are both a cosmetic and restorative dental solution.
Dental crowns are a restorative solution for your teeth. Dental crowns are caps that are placed over your teeth. CAD CAM porcelain crowns offer a similar translucent appearance and work beautifully for larger chips, cracks and severely decayed broken teeth. CAD CAM porcelain crowns can be custom crafted in one single office visit and do not involve downtime.
When it comes to selecting between dental veneers or CAD CAM porcelain crowns, a lot will depend upon what you qualify for. The good news at the practice of Dr. Mark Sweeney is that you have both choices.
