Comparing Veneers, Crowns and Bridges
The world of cosmetic dentistry is vast and varied with many options and solutions available to correct a range of issues. At Emergency Denture Repairs, we offer high-quality services in porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges to repair and protect your oral health. In this article, we’re discussing the differences between and benefits of these three treatments.
Porcelain Veneers for an Improved Smile
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin caps that are used to cover the front surface of the teeth, allowing your clinician to change the colour, shape and size of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, lasting for many years when looked after correctly. Our patients benefit from higher confidence levels because their veneers have:
- Improved the shape of chipped, damage and misaligned teeth
- Filled gaps between the teeth to create an even smile
- Straightened their teeth and brought them back into a better position
Veneers are typically a cheaper and less invasive option for treating discoloured, misaligned, misshapen, chipped or partially broken front teeth.
When to Choose a Dental Crown
Dental crowns can be thought of as the next step up from a veneer. Badly damaged teeth are filed down and a crown is used to cover the entire tooth to prevent further damage or tooth loss. Crowns are often needed to:
- Protect a tooth with a large cavity that cannot be fixed with a simple filling
- Give support and strength to a heavily filled tooth
- Restore a cracked or broken tooth
- Lift some pressure from clenching and grinding
- Restore a dental implant
- Protect a tooth that has had a root canal treatment
- Achieve a total smile makeover in cosmetic dentistry
What are Dental Bridges Used For?
A bridge is a dental restoration treatment that consists of a row of porcelain crowns that replace a missing tooth. During the procedure, the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth are given crowns and are attached to another crown that sits above the gum where the tooth has been lost. Bridges will not only replace a missing tooth, but they will also protect the surrounding teeth and jaw.
Bridges prevent the teeth from moving which also prevents changes to the bite. A bridge can greatly improve the function of the mouth while eating and speaking. Emergency Denture Repairs also offers dentures and dental implants to replace missing teeth in more severe cases.
