Porcelian Veneers And Dental Crowns

If your smile has cosmetic flaws that you’d like to fix, there is often more than one way to solve the problem. Dental crowns and porcelain veneers are similar in that they can be used to conceal certain aesthetic problems. However, they each have their own unique set of characteristics that generally make one or the other more suitable for certain situations.

At Cedar Road Dental, our focus is on providing you with solutions that not only improve your oral health but also enhance your appearance. Dr. Zahir knows that every patient is unique, and she will actively listen to your concerns and questions to create a treatment plan that fits your specific needs.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are interested in finding a minimally invasive treatment that will improve the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers are a great option. Porcelain veneers look completely natural and can beautifully transform your smile in just a few office visits.

Veneers may be an appropriate solution for correcting the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Stained and discolored
  • Worn, chipped, cracked, or broken
  • Poorly proportioned
  • Unevenly spaced

If you grind or clench your teeth, you may not be a good candidate for veneers as these actions may cause the veneer to chip or crack. Dr. Zahir will help you decide if porcelain veneers are right for you in this case.

Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns (caps) are a dental restoration used to replace the visible portion of a tooth to return it to its original function and create a natural appearance. Crowns are sculpted to look like dental enamel while providing durability and resilience.

Other uses for dental crowns are:

  • Protecting and strengthening a tooth is damaged by dental trauma
  • Restoring a tooth damaged by severe erosion of the dental enamel
  • Providing support and function for a tooth that has been compromised by grinding or clenching
  • Protecting and strengthening a tooth after root canal treatment

But the uses for dental crowns are not limited to restoring the original tooth. A crown can also be designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth. While the actual process of placing a crown is nothing like veneers, their function is similar in that crowns can also be used to resolve similar cosmetic dental issues like chipped, cracked, or stained teeth.

What people saying about us

  • Dr. Zahir is the absolute BEST! As picky as I am with a dentist, I have finally found one that I completely trust! The major work she has done for me is a few crowns and they look fantastic. The color match is perfect, and she is sooooo gentle…. She asks the entire time if you’re doing ok. I highly recommend Dr. Zahir. My husband and I both drive from Elizabeth City North Carolina to her in Chesapeake….she is well worth the hour drive ❤️
