It is difficult to overstate the importance of a good oral hygiene routine, one that effectively helps you preserve the color and condition of your teeth. Of course, even people who feel they do good work caring for their teeth can experience issues with their oral health, either from unexpected tooth decay or a physical injury. Even if your smile remains in good condition, you can feel less than satisfied by it because of problems with the shape, size, or spacing of certain teeth. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we are prepared to help when patients bring us different concerns about their appearance and health. With both porcelain veneers and dental crowns, we can take on both cosmetic and oral health issues that can affect you.
Permanent Restorations Can Provide Welcome Changes To Your Smile
Through the use of permanent dental restorations, there are many different issues that we can take on for a patient with concerns about their smile. Dental crowns are relied on to provide cosmetic as well as oral health support. Their placement can be a part of cavity treatment, or it can be in response to a dental injury. In some cases, undersized or misshapen teeth can be restored with these appliances, as they may provide too little bite support. Porcelain veneers are used to resolve cosmetic concerns. While they provide less coverage, they offer a more conservative solution than crowns, as they only take up the front surfaces of teeth.
Restoring Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers
While they are thin enough to minimize changes to your tooth structure, porcelain veneers can provide years of support thanks to their durability. They are bonded directly to the front surfaces of your teeth, with only minor preparatory work needed to make space for them. Because they need less space than dental crowns, more of your healthy enamel is preserved. We take care to closely evaluate your teeth and smile to ensure that your custom cosmetic restorations have the right impact on your appearance.
Using Dental Crowns To Take Care Of Smile Flaws
Because our dental crowns are made with CEREC technology, these restorations can be personalized for you and placed in as little as one appointment! We take care to digitally measure teeth, and from there we use the information we gathered to design restorations that we can then produce in an in-office milling machine. While these custom restorations have real cosmetic benefits, they also provide important bite support, and they are capable of restoring vulnerable teeth that have been physically damaged.
