Just as there is more than one way to skin a cat, there is more than one way to fix a tooth. If you are the lucky owner of a set of healthy teeth, you may never need any of the procedures described in this post. But most of us in Reston will.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin covers can hide a chip or crack or repair the alignment of a tooth that is slightly crooked. They can also dramatically improve your smile. Did you know the first veneers were used way back in the 1920s, to enhance the smiles of movie stars?
A Dental Crown
A dental crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, strength, and function. Crowns are used for teeth that have had a root canal, with extreme decay, the replacement tooth in a dental bridge, and the visible portion of a dental implant.
Many dentists consider dental implants the ultimate restoration, because they restore the entire tooth. Technically, an implant is the titanium post inserted into the jaw bone. The artificial tooth and its support sit on top of the post. Most recipients say the result is indistinguishable from a natural tooth.
