Dental Crowns, Braces, and Veneers – Exploring Your Options

Dental Crowns

Everyone wants a set of gorgeous, evenly spaced teeth, and there are several professional dental procedures that can provide them. In fact, when faced with so many options, things can get little confusing. Are braces, veneers, or dental crowns the best solutions for your teeth? All are safe and beneficial options with their own advantages and disadvantages. Your dentist can examine your teeth to determine which type of corrective treatment will best suit your needs and your budget. Here’s what you need to know about all three.

Is a Dental Crown Your Best Bet?

Crowns are ideal for individual teeth that are weak or badly damaged or have cosmetic issues. Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are custom-made to fit over the entire surface of the tooth. Made from a variety of materials, crowns can look exactly like natural teeth. Some dental clinics can make ceramic crowns in one visit. Most dental crowns will last for a decade or longer. Pricing varies widely.

Are Veneers the Ideal Solution? 



A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the outer surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. Veneers can alter the shape, size, spacing, and color of teeth. The process of creating and applying the porcelain coverings may take several weeks from start to finish. Like dental crowns, they are expected to last for at least a decade, but they may be more expensive than other options.

How Can Today’s Advanced Braces Help? 



Traditional metal braces are not a quick fix for cosmetic issues, but they are the best option for correcting complicated abnormalities. Many dentists now offer Invisalign tooth aligners for milder problems; these are virtually invisible in your mouth, and in most cases, they only require a year to work. Prices for both metal devices and Invisalign vary widely and depend on a number of personal and medical factors.
