At Viscount Dental Associates, we treat many patients who suffer from dental health issues that may require crowns and veneers. Dental crowns are used to cap damaged teeth in order to restore their strength. Veneers, on the other hand, serve the function of covering the front of a tooth. Both crowns and veneers are great dental health options. Since many patients in El Paso require oral health assistance, we offer excellent services to aid dental health and support correct function. With the help of the latest in dental technology, the Viscount Dental Associates team designs effective treatment plans to help you achieve the healthiest and most beautiful smile possible.
You should treat your teeth like royalty. What better way to achieve this than by having your dentist place actual “crowns” atop them? A damaged tooth can be responsible for a lot of pain and discomfort in the mouth. Instead of letting this pain become a normal aspect of your daily life, let Viscount Dental Associates help. We offer all the best options for dental crowns. With our assistance and care, your problematic tooth will cease to be in pain and you can start enjoying life again!
Crowns are truly marvelous things. They help protect and strengthen a permanently injured tooth. This is achieved by covering the cracked or damaged tooth with metal, porcelain, ceramic or stainless-steel material, preventing further damage from occurring.
When your teeth undergo the crowning procedure, your injured tooth will be taken care of in all-encompassing fashion. Crowns will protect a weak tooth from breaking since they add the stability and strength your tooth requires to work as it’s meant to. Crowns can also restore a broken or severely worn-down tooth. Instead of becoming accustomed to dental pain, you can let crowns restore your damaged or worn-down tooth. Dental crowns are also an important player in dental bridge procedures. They hold the dental bridge in place, allowing for the complete restoration of a missing tooth. Even if severely discolored teeth can benefit from crowns!
Crowns cover the tops of teeth to keep them strong. Veneers are another important dental feature that can protect the tooth. You may be familiar with veneers since many celebrities and national newscasters have them in order for their pearly whites to be as bright and perfect as possible. But veneers aren’t exclusively for celebrities. In fact, veneers serve an important purpose in the world of oral health.
Veneers are very thin and custom made to fit on the front surface of your very own teeth. They are most commonly made of porcelain, a material that looks and feels very much like teeth. It’s important to note that porcelain is very well tolerated by gum tissue. The main purpose veneers serve is to restore a tooth’s appearance. But it doesn’t stop there. Veneers offer much-needed assistance to teeth that are chipped, uneven or discolored.
The veneer procedure is straightforward. Your dentist at Viscount Dental Associates will first take x-rays of your mouth and, in most cases, will make an impression of your teeth. Your veneers will be custom made to fit your existing tooth or teeth. In addition, veneers must match the color of your other teeth. Your dentist will make sure all these details are planned accordingly. Once the veneer is ready, a minute amount of tooth enamel will be scraped away in order to create room for the veneer. The veneer will then be bonded permanently into position. And there you go! Your teeth will now look beautiful and bright. Veneers are stain resistant so they will always look as good as the day you got them. If you’re ready to restore the look and shape of your teeth, visit us at Viscount Dental Associates!
