You’re ready to enhance your smile, but not yet very familiar with cosmetic dentistry options. Your smile is as unique as you are, and therefore the best dental plan will be personalized by talking with Dr. Fisher and Dr. Bergevin. However, to give some idea of what you will discuss, here is an intro to two of the best options available: dental crowns and dental veneers. Here are some comparisons to consider:
Three Advantages of Dental Crowns:
Dental crowns fully enclose damaged or unsightly teeth by capping the entire tooth down to the gum line.
Functionality: They improve the functionality and durability of a tooth, extending its lifespan. They can even help repair chipped or broken teeth by sealing the pieces together under the crown.
Customizable: Dental crowns can be customized and individually designed based on color, size, shape, and curvature.
Versatility: Dental crowns can protect teeth that have fillings, root canals, and even implants.
Four Advantages of Dental Veneers:
Dental veneers conceal damage or unsightly teeth by affixing a small shell to the front of teeth for an aesthetically pleasing look.
Customizable: Dental veneers can also be customized and individually designed based on color, size, shape, and curvature, in a similar way to dental crowns.
Tooth Strength: Dental veneers require very little tooth enamel removal, much less than dental crowns.
Prestige: Dental veneers can give you a superstar smile; they are often used by wealthy individuals and celebrities.
Both options can last for up to a decade, with the proper care. If you would like to schedule an oral exam at Fisher Distinctive Dentistry, simply call our dentist office in Port Orchard, WA, at 360-876-0445. Our entire team looks forward to making your smile shine!
