After decades of wear and tear, your teeth experience the effects of time. They weaken and wear down. Teeth lose structure, see an increase in sensitivity, and lose more and more enamel. When your teeth are worn, you lose confidence in your smile and in yourself. But it’s not necessary for you to turn to more significant treatments that typically replace missing teeth. Porcelain dental restorations are an idea way to rebuild worn teeth without changing the appearance of your smile or undergoing dental surgery. With porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns, you will see a remade smile that is still uniquely yours, in which restorations blend with natural teeth.
Oakland Full Mouth Reconstruction with Porcelain Dental Restorations
Every patient’s full mouth reconstruction is different. Depending on the level of wear of the teeth and the patient’s needs, they will require different dental procedures. The reconstruction procedures range from simple (teeth whitening) to surgical (dental implants). When a patient has worn teeth but is not missing teeth, porcelain dental restorations will be sufficient. In order to receive these restorations, your dentist simply needs to reduce some of your tooth structure so that the veneer or crown may fit over the natural tooth. Your smile will typically be restored within the space of two appointments.
Porcelain Veneers Vs. Porcelain Crowns Oakland
While veneers and crowns both restore tooth structure, they are of different levels of substantiality. Veneers are very thin replacements for tooth enamel. They require minimal tooth reduction in order to fit over tooth structures.
Crowns replace more structure than veneers. While veneers act as new layers of enamel, crowns replace much more of a tooth. Teeth that are severely worn, decayed, or have experienced trauma will require addition of structure. Crowns provide that lacking dentition.
