Dr. Jacobs has been our family dentist for just over a year now and we have been so impressed. Her staff makes my kids feel very comfortable during treatment. I was impressed at the level of detail that she provided about our care.Jennifer Compston8 Apr, 2019
I had a dental emergency and could not find a dentist that would get me in but Dr Jacobs did and even stayed an extra 20 mins because I was trying to get there from across town. She took care of me, explained everything and was so kind.... definitely an answer to prayer when I was hurting and truly needed help.The staff was amazing and Dr Jacobs was so patient and detail oriented.... This will be my dentist from now on! Thank you!Janna Hicks2 Apr, 2019

Dental crowns and veneers are great options in enhancing your smile or restoring your teeth’s natural shine. Here at Northwest Family Dental, we are often asked about our recommended treatments in teeth restoration and cosmetic dentistry, and these two methods are highly suitable. Lets review a quick comparison of the two!
Mainly placed to strengthen teeth, improve their color and shape, and to hide imperfections and damages, dental crowns are highly recommended are meant to rebuild or rehabilitate your teeth when average fillings are no longer enough.
Made of porcelain, gold, metal, or a combination of two of them, dental crowns are still designed to be an invisible layering around your teeth. They will greatly improve the state of a damaged tooth, but it comes with the cost of having a lot of tooth reduction.
Considered as the cosmetic alternative to dental crowns, veneers are more on aesthetic correction on common problems such as teeth discoloration, chips, gaps, and misalignments. A layer of veneer can be made of porcelain, ceramic, and composite resin. It requires less or even no tooth reduction while your enamel needs to be thinned beforehand. Veneers are generally not as strong as dental crowns, but they can still be removed if deemed unnecessary.
To sum it up, dental crowns require more tooth reduction, but promise rebuilding the strength and form of your tooth. Veneers, on the other hand, involve less procedure and are mainly for cosmetic or aesthetic purposes. Choosing one over the other will definitely depend on your need and the advice of your trusted family dentist.
