Your smile is one of the first things that others notice about you. Having a smile you love is an important part of feeling confident during cosmetic dentistryfirst impressions and other face-to-face interactions. However, if you have broken, damaged, missing, or yellowed teeth, a beautiful smile can feel unattainable. Luckily, with help from your cosmetic dentist, you can have the exact smile you have always wanted. Learn more about cosmetic dentistry with Dr. R. Ian Murray in Stuart, FL.

What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns fit over a damaged or broken tooth to help improve its functionality. Crowns can also improve the appearance of a tooth. Often, a dental crown holds a dental bridge in place or covers a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Dental crowns are porcelain and custom-made for your mouth.

What is a dental veneer? 
Dental veneers are another option your dentist may recommend when it comes to renewing your smile. Veneers cover the surface of each tooth individually, allowing you to change their appearance and create a smile which is a perfect fit for you. Since they sit on the surface of the tooth and mask the tooth itself, veneers can also change the color of the teeth along with their shape, size, length and width.

Can I benefit from teeth whitening? 
Teeth whitening does not work on dental restorations like crowns and veneers. However, it can lift the color of your natural teeth in a single session. This means that you can work with your dentist to come up with a plan to whiten your natural teeth and match the porcelain of your dental restorations to the new color of your teeth. Porcelain does not stain, meaning you may need to have touch-up whitening sessions on your natural teeth to maintain an even smile.
