Crowns & Veneers
At Eagle Rock Dental Care we are proud to offer you the best in information, service, and products. For many restorations we currently recommend crowns, bridges and veneers be created using an all porcelain material called Emax. Emax looks great, lasts a long time and has been shown to wear most like natural teeth than other materials on the market at this time. If you have been wanting single or multiple teeth crowned we can do it here at Eagle Rock Dental Care.
We offer full- mouth rehabilitation that can include crowns, bridges, or even implants. This is a way you can truly get the smile of your dreams! Custom color and perfect fit result in a treatment you will never forget… or regret!
Also, if you are uneasy about your smile then crowns or veneers may be a perfect restoration treatment for you. A veneer is made out of porcelain like a full coverage crown, but the tooth needs minimal amount of tooth structure removed off the front and chewing edge of the tooth; the porcelain is placed to restore the lost, worn, or malformed tooth structure and brings life back into your smile. This is an effective procedure that will change your entire smile be simply fixing 4-6 front teeth. If this is something that you would like to look into, we offer a “diagnostic wax-up” that allows you to visualize the result before starting the actual procedure.

What Is A Dental Veneer?
Dental porcelain laminates, also called porcelain veneers, are used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers are thin shells made of tooth-colored materials that bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth.
This cosmetic procedure is ideal for dramatically improving the color, shape, size, and length of your teeth. This effective procedure will change your entire smile by simply fixing 4-6 front teeth.
What Is A Dental Crown?
Crowns are dental restorations that cover or surround a tooth or dental implant. When a significant cavity threatens continued health, crowns are frequently required. They can also support a dental bridge or cover a misshapen or discolored tooth.
A crown is an artificial tooth made from porcelain, ceramic, or metal in dentistry. Once it gets cemented into place, it will fully encase the portion of your tooth above the gum line.
The Difference Between A Crown And A Veneer
- A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin material placed over a tooth. At the same time, a crown is an artificial tooth made out of porcelain, ceramic, or metal that fully encases the portion of your tooth above the gum line.
- Veneers improve the appearance of teeth that get discolored, chipped, or worn down, while crowns support a dental bridge or cover a misshapen or discolored tooth.
- Before placing a veneer, removing a minimal amount of tooth structure is necessary, while setting a crown involves more tooth removal.
Crowns and veneers are two popular options for restoring teeth. Both have their benefits and drawbacks, so it’s essential to consult with your dentist to determine the best option.
Average Cost of Crowns and Veneers Treatment
The price of a crown can vary depending on the material used. Some materials, like gold, are more expensive than others, like ceramic. Crowns can also be priced differently based on the dentist’s fees and the dental practice location.
It is important to note that insurance may cover the cost of a dental crown or veneer in some cases. To find out if your insurance provider covers your procedure, check with them.
Factors To Consider When Choosing A Crown Or Veneer
There are several factors to consider when choosing a crown or veneer. The most important factors are the degree of damage and the tooth’s location.
If you have minor damage, such as a small chip that does not affect your bite, then a veneer may be a good solution. Crowns are generally reserved for more severe damage but can be an appropriate treatment for chips.
For teeth that are visible when you smile, such as your upper front teeth, cosmetic considerations usually override all other reviews, and veneers are recommended.
For back teeth, which aren’t visible when you smile and must withstand heavy chewing forces, durability is often more important than cosmetic considerations, and crowns are recommended.
Ultimately, the best way to decide which treatment is proper for you is to consult with your dentist. We will be able to help you choose the best option based on your individual needs.
What Are Crowns And Veneers Made Of?
In most cases, they are made out of metal, such as gold or platinum. We recommend that crowns, bridges, and veneers are made using an all-porcelain material called Emax for many restorations.
Emax is a beautiful, long-lasting material that appears to wear more like natural teeth than any other product. According to the location of your tooth and your personal preference, you will get a crown of a particular type.
