Enhance Your Pearly Whites This National Smile Week

National Smile Week falls on the second week of August every year. It is a time for Americans to reflect on their smiles and what makes them great. Unfortunately, many individuals feel they cannot smile wide and big due to some flaws. People should never feel like they need to hide something so beautiful, and luckily, there are veneers and dental crowns that can help a number of patients receive the smiles of their dreams.


A veneer made out of porcelain is directly adhered to the surface of a slightly altered tooth. Our dentist will manufacture a veneer that looks exactly like the natural structure of a tooth. Once adhered, it covers up any deformities, such as chips, cracks and other forms of damage. These restorations can also be used to make short teeth appear longer if a patient is self-conscious about that. Dental veneers are great for covering up intrinsic stains that have formed on the inside of teeth that cannot be removed with a teeth whitening procedure.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a structure that goes over an altered tooth. It is applied to enhance the natural appearance of a person’s smile and to protect the tooth from further harm. Patient can get dental crowns made out of a variety of substances based on what they want in their smile. Some of the materials include:

  • Porcelain
  • Palladium
  • Gold
  • Ceramic
  • Zirconia
  • Silver

Crowns can cover up the same aesthetic damage as veneers. The best restoration for patients will depend on the extent of the damage the tooth has already experienced as well as the patient’s preference for how much enamel is to be removed.
