The appearance of your teeth can play an important role in your self-confidence. After all, your smile is the first thing that many people notice about you, and your smile and expressions are your strongest forms of nonverbal communication.  If you have stains on your teeth or other minor cosmetic defects that alter the appearance of your smile, our dentists, Drs. Scott and Straw might recommend dental veneers or a dental crown.

Veneers are created from a special type of dental grade porcelain that can be shaded to look like your natural tooth enamel. Veneers are resistant to dental staining, but they can be stained over time.

A dental crown restoration involves our dentist examining your teeth. If a tooth has been compromised by an old dental filling, a significant fracture or a significant physical defect, the dentist might recommend a crown. A crown replaces the tooth’s original enamel layer with dental grade porcelain or another sturdy material. Once the necessary dental work has been prepared in a dental lab, they will install it with a strong dental adhesive.

If you live in the Provo, Utah, area and you need help improving your unattractive smile, you should call 801-375-1965 to schedule a consultation at Unison Dental.
