What Do You Really Know about Cosmetic Dental Crowns

If you have been considering dental crowns, there are some things you should know. Especially if the dental crown is for cosmetic purposes.

Just because your favorite celebrity has confessed to cosmetic dental crowns instead of veneers doesn’t mean you have to. It’s important to remember that dental crowns will come with a price.

The Truth About Cosmetic Dental Crowns

Firstly, dental crowns require more structural removal of the tooth, secondly they aren’t always necessary if your smile is healthy and just needs a little boost. According to Chittenden Dental, cosmetic dental bonding is an excellent solution and does not require tooth removal.

Both porcelain veneers, and dental crowns, require permanent tooth removal for a natural fit. If you have teeth that are stained but cannot be whitened with professional tooth whitening products, or teeth that are slightly chipped or cracked, cosmetic dental bonding is for you.
