Dental Crowns, Braces, or Veneers – Which is Right for You?

Dental Crowns

If you have access to a skilled dentist in Baltimore, a perfect smile is within your reach. Several options exist to transform imperfect or damaged teeth into dental works of art; these include veneers, braces, and dental crowns. Each has its pros and cons, and many factors are involved in determining which one is best suited for your teeth. The best way to find the perfect solution is to talk to your dentist. In the meantime, here is some basic information about each type of treatment.

Dental Crowns: Weak or damaged teeth are perfect candidates for crowns. Also known as dental caps, crowns are custom-made to fit over the entire surface of the tooth. Made from a variety of materials, a dental crown can look exactly like a natural tooth. Some dental clinics can make ceramic crowns in one visit. Most dental crowns will last for a decade or longer. Pricing varies widely.

Veneers: A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the outer surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. A veneer can alter the shape, size, spacing, and color of teeth. The process of creating and applying the porcelain layers may take several weeks from start to finish. Like dental crowns, they are expected to last for at least a decade, but may be more expensive than other options.

Braces: While traditional metal braces are not a quick fix for cosmetic issues, they are the best option for correcting complicated abnormalities. Many dentists now offer Invisalign tooth aligners for milder problems; these are virtually invisible in your mouth, and in most cases, they only require only a year to work. Prices for both metal devices and Invisalign vary widely and depend on a number of personal and medical factors.

A dentist in Baltimore can help you find the perfect solution for your cosmetic tooth issues and your lifelong dental health. Schedule your appointment today, and find a new reason to smile.
