Unless you are a cosmetic dentist, it is impossible to look at your mouth and understand what types of cosmetic dentistry treatments would be best for you.
It’s like a layman trying to diagnose an odd-looking mole, it just doesn’t work. Choosing the best treatment for your particular needs must be done by a professional. Your dentist in Anaheim Hills is that professional.
As a practicing dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Jack Ringer, past president and an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, has a trained eye and is an expert when it comes to designing the best smile for your face shape, your sense of style, and your personality.
Although both are usually manufactured out of dental porcelain, they are different. A porcelain veneer is placed on the fronts of your teeth while a dental crown encases or covers the whole tooth.
Porcelain veneers are about a millimeter thick, sometimes less than. With some types of porcelain veneers, tooth reduction is not needed, so you will not need temporary veneers. Dental crowns are thicker and require more enamel removal.
Veneers allow Dr. Ringer to make minimal changes in the shape of your tooth or teeth. Porcelain veneers are also used to alter the color. Compared to dental crowns, porcelain veneers are slightly more brittle. More care is needed to prevent fracture or dislodge.
Sometimes Dr. Ringer and his team will trim down the tooth to the core. This can significantly change the shape. If your tooth is badly broken or decayed, a strong dental crown can withstand chewing, biting and teeth grinding. Dental crowns look natural and are common when it comes to tooth restoration and may be recommended by your cosmetic dentist.
Whatever cosmetic dentistry procedure you decide on, you can be assured that Dr. Ringer and his team will give you a beautifully restored smile with cosmetic dentistry.
