Differences between Dental Caps and Dental Veneers

Differences between Dental Caps and Dental VeneersOur cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles is proud to be able to offer some of the most effective treatments and services in the world that are going to allow you to achieve and maintain a beautiful smile.  For those with serious amounts of trauma to the teeth, tooth decay, or internal discoloration, we may suggest the use of either dental caps or dental veneers.  Here is a look at these two dental appliances and some of the key differences between them.

Before we affix either veneers or caps to the teeth, we are going to thoroughly inspect the mouth and take very precise measurements of the teeth.  Both of these appliances are going to be made custom for every single patient, but each are going to be used in slightly different situations.

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are attached only to the front of the teeth.  While they may be able to protect some fillings or sensitive teeth, they are primarily going to be used as a cosmetic treatment to make one’s smile more uniform and bright.  While caps are also going to improve the appearance of a smile as well, they are also going to encapsulate an entire tooth.  They are used to protect the structure of a tooth after any amount of damage or decay to the interior.

Each of these treatments are used quite often and can provide a patient with a bright and healthy new smile.  Contact our office today to discuss which of these options are going to be available to you and your loved ones.
