What  are Dental Crowns and Veneers?

Dental crowns and veneers are two exceptional restorative treatments that can bring back your radiant smile. A dental crown, often called a ‘cap,’ is a custom-made cover placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. It’s like a protective shell providing a new lease of life to your damaged or decayed tooth. On the other hand, a dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain or composite resin that is bonded to the front of your tooth. Think of it as a beautiful facade, hiding discoloration, minor gaps, or chips, and providing you with a movie-star worthy smile. With both crowns and veneers, your confidence is just a smile away!

Benefits of Dental Crowns and Veneers

Dental crowns and veneers offer exceptional benefits. They restore the functionality of your teeth, enabling you to eat and speak with ease. Crowns provide a ‘cap’ for damaged teeth, protecting them from further harm, while veneers cover the front surface of your teeth, rectifying aesthetic issues. Both are custom-made to match your natural teeth’s shape, size, and color, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking restoration.

Did You Know the History of Dental Crowns and Veneers?

The history of dental crowns dates back to around 700 BC, when the Etruscans used gold to create dental crowns and bridges?

As for veneers, they were invented by California dentist Dr. Charles Pincus in 1928 for a film shoot to temporarily alter actors’ teeth!  

Alternatives to Dental Crowns and Veneers

While dental crowns and veneers offer fantastic restorative options, there are alternatives to consider. Dental bonding, for instance, can be a cost-effective solution for minor chips and cracks. Onlays or inlays are suitable for cases where damage is too extensive for a filling but not severe enough for a crown. It’s like choosing between a high-end designer outfit and a high-quality off-the-rack ensemble—both are stylish, but your choice depends on your budget and specific needs.

Our Patients

I’ve had a lot of dental anxiety my entire life and recently decided to try changing dental offices. I am so happy I chose Valley Dental!

Dr. McCracken is so kind, funny and gentle. I was not shamed in any way for not coming in soon enough. The front desk staff and all the dental assistants are also so kind. It’s such a nice, calming atmosphere. I am no longer scared to go to the dentist! Thank you!
