While working to improve the smiles of his patients at her Oak Lawn dental office, Dr. Weinfield keeps in mind that each face has a unique smile and shouldn’t be a copy of someone else smile. In order to make your smile its best, dental crowns or veneers are great way to restore the form, function, and beauty of your smile. As far as a dental restoration goes, crowns and caps are used synonymously. Crowns are synthetic caps placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure, such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Dr. Weinfield may also use crowns to attach bridges, cover implants, or to prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse. If your tooth or teeth aren’t missing and merely have gaps, chips, stains, or are misshapen, then veneers are for you. Dental crowns are sometimes confused with veneers, but they are quite different. Porcelain veneers are typically applied only to relatively small areas. They are natural in appearance, and are a perfect alternative for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of your teeth. Traditional dental restoratives include gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite. These materials are not only strong and durable, but restore the look of natural teeth and are very aesthetically pleasing.
Dr. Weinfield believes that people look different, teeth look different so every patient receives a customized service. On the other hand all patients are equally important and treated as friends and family. Our Oak Lawn dental office will determine the best possible solution to restore your teeth based on your individual needs. Regardless of which method is right for you, restoring and replacing your teeth will surely restore your beautiful smile.
