Dental Crowns and Veneers FAQ

Here are some of your most common questions regarding dental crowns and veneers in Jacksonville! Read what Dr. Wagner has to say about these top treatments in restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

Q: How do I know if I need a crown or a veneer?

A: The main thing to remember about crowns and veneers is that crowns enhance the form and function of a damaged tooth, while veneers correct the appearance of imperfect teeth. For that reason, a crown can be used to restore teeth in the front or back of the mouth, but veneers are reserved for the teeth that show when you smile.

Q: So what’s the difference between crowns and veneers exactly?

A: Because a veneer is used to improve the appearance of cosmetically imperfect teeth, the thin coverings are bonded directly onto the front surface of teeth. Crowns, on the other hand, are tooth-shaped caps that surround the entire tooth — strengthening it against further breakage or decay.

Q: Can a crown really improve the appearance of a tooth?

A: Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, some of which blend beautifully with the rest of your smile. If you’ve got a front tooth that’s structurally flawed, you’ll need a strong restoration — and a porcelain or ceramic crown can be just the solution.

Q: How does the treatment compare for dental crowns and veneers?

A: Because Eccella makes use of the latest in dental technology, we have a CEREC milling machine to reduce the treatment time of both dental veneers and crowns in far less than half. In fact, because CEREC allows us to mill your device right in our office, both procedures can be completed in just one visit to your cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville!
