If You Want A Crown This Is Probably The Best Route To Go

Getting a crown has long been known to be a two-visit dental experience. Lots of people have no idea that this is not the case with same day crowns. For our lucky clients, getting a crown just takes one appointment!

The Traditional 2 Visit Way

At the first appointment, impressions are taken of the tooth and the impression is sent out to a lab so that your long-term crown can be made. Lots of people do not like the goopy impression materials that can make them gag and that takes up to 5 minutes in their mouth to set.

Then your tooth is shaved down so that your crown can be placed on top of it. Then you receive a temporary crown cemented over the shaved tooth to hold you over until your long-term crown shows up from the laboratory. Then later, you need to go back to the dentist, have the short-term crown removed and the new crown positioned on your tooth

Today's Topic Will Be About:

Porcelain Tooth Veneers

Veneers are a really thin pieces of resilient, tooth shaped, porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental lab. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to produce a gorgeous and appealing smile.

Veneers can entirely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the perfect solution in treating lots of cosmetic dental conditions for the front teeth.

Just like most dental restorations, veneers might one day require replacement; however, they are still extremely long lasting and will last years, giving you a long lasting, stunning smile.

How Are Veneers Applied?

Veneers are a dental treatment in which a covering is positioned over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are generally only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The treatment can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This approach is typically referred to as bonding.

The indirect strategy generally involves 2 visits because the veneers will be produced at a dental lab. At the very first visit the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are offered a temporary covering. In 2 to 3 weeks the veneers are back from the lab, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The lab produced veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are extremely esthetic.

The benefit of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is eliminated, and the procedure is usually less uncomfortable. Veneers are not advised for teeth that have huge fillings or little tooth structure.

You will get care guidelines for your veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new and stunning veneers.
