Have you ever wondered what the best form of tooth restoration therapy is? Although many forms of tooth restorations can have a tremendous impact on your oral health, two of the highest quality and most well-received services are dental crowns and dental veneers. Both are designed to improve the look and function of your smile for many years to come.

Dental veneers are thin, yet durable artificial shells placed atop the fronts of teeth to ensure the look you desire can be achieved. They can be shaped and cut for nearly any smile and even tinted to seamless blend with the other natural around them. For an entire smile makeover, a full set of dental veneers can be used.

Dental crowns also seek to improve the look of your smile, but can also function to keep it safe. If you have damaged tooth enamel, or have signs of tooth decay, it is possible to prevent further damage by encasing a tooth in a dental crown. Crowns work like caps for a tooth and completely cover each tooth down to the gum line. They are held in place by bonding directly to teeth and customized as necessary.

No matter which tooth restoration service you choose, the real importance is the oral health benefits each can provide.
