If you have recently been the victim of any damage or injury to your teeth, you may be in need of a tooth restoration therapy. Highly effective options such as dental fillings, dental veneers, and dental crowns can vastly improve your oral health. Consider the following facts about each treatment:

– Dental fillings are tooth restorations placed in teeth that are suffering from cavities. Not only can fillings stop cavities from getting worse, they can also stop new cavities from forming.

– Dental veneers are highly advanced forms of tooth restorations used to vastly improve the look for your smile. Veneers use thin shells placed over the fronts of your teeth for a flawless look that is sure to please. Dental veneers can last a full decade before they may need to be repaired or replaced.

– Dental crowns are tooth restoration treatments that correct problematic teeth that may have an aesthetic flaw or need serious protection. Dental crowns can protect teeth on all sides down to the gum line. In most cases, a tooth may be severely damaged that a dental crown is one of the only treatments that can be used to save the tooth. Otherwise, an extraction may be necessary.
