Veneers

If you want to improve your smile, dental veneers are a simple option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, such as:

  • teeth that are stained and can’t be whitened by bleaching
  • chipped or worn teeth
  • crooked or misshapen teeth
  • uneven spaces or a large gap between the upper front teeth

Veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin material.

Crowns

If you have a tooth that’s damaged, your dentist might recommend covering the tooth with a dental crown. Depending on your oral situation, different types of crowns are available to restore your tooth to its natural shape, appearance, and function.

Also known as a cap, a dental crown is most often a tooth-colored prosthetic designed to cover a damaged tooth in a fixed position. Once inserted, a crown can strengthen the tooth, improving its overall appearance and alignment in the mouth.
