Crowns and veneers are two fantastic ways to make your teeth look better if they have cosmetic flaws. Here at Brady, Grife & Koyl, we restore teeth, whether they have need aesthetic help or to be strengthened and saved. Our dental office in Cold Water is the place to turn to for healthy, great-looking teeth.
A crown is placed on top of a tooth, while veneers are placed over the fronts of your teeth. Typically, a crown is most suitable for a single tooth, while veneers are used to address multiple teeth. If you have a tooth that has been severely decayed, cracked, chipped, is discolored, or crooked, a crown is often the best solution. It restores the tooth back to its original size (such as when one needs to be drilled down for root canal therapy), and makes it strong enough for you to chew with and have complete confidence in again. Our dental office in Cold Water will take impressions and the dental lab will make your crown from the appropriate material depending on the location of the tooth. The crown is then cemented to the top of your tooth for reliability. Veneers are also made at the dental lab from impressions taken here. In addition to being effective for many of the same problems that crowns are used for, veneers are also helpful when you have gaps between your teeth that are too wide. They are made of porcelain or other tooth-colored materials so they look very much like your natural teeth. A small amount of tooth material is lost in the process of placing veneers so that there is enough room for them.
There is no reason you should have to settle for teeth that make you feel self-conscious when our dental office in Cold Water can give you a smile that you will be proud of. And you should also not risk losing a tooth that can be saved with the assistance of a crown. Just call us and schedule an appointment.
