Crowns and Veneers
Dental Crowns Overview:
A crown (or cap) is a tooth-shaped covering that covers entire tooth surface in order to restore its original shape and size or to improve its appearance. Whereas a filling restores only part of a tooth, a crown can restore the structure of a much larger portion of tooth.
Although crowns can be made from several different materials, porcelain is the most popular choice because it extremely natural looking and luminous. Porcelain crowns are highly durable and will last for many years, but as with most dental restorations they may eventually require repair or replacement.
Reasons for Crowns
To fix broken, fractured or decayed teeth.
For cosmetic enhancement.
To repair fractured fillings.
For large fillings.
Dental Veneers Overview:
Would you love a brilliant smile you could proudly share with the world? If you feel self-conscious about your appearance, porcelain veneers will erase your smile’s flaws to reveal a dazzling new look. Patients choose porcelain veneers or Lumineers because they want to:
Brighten their smiles or eliminate stains
Achieve uniformity of teeth
Close space between teeth
Hide imperfections, like chips and misalignment
Veneers will let you enjoy your dream smile in just two to three appointments. A smile makeover should reflect your personality and style, so the dentist will meet with you beforehand to discuss your preferences. Depending on your tastes and needs, your dentist will recommend custom veneers or Lumineers.
With custom porcelain veneers, a talented ceramist will handcraft thin shells of porcelain according to your cosmetic dentist’s specifications and your dental impressions. During your first appointment, the dentist will prepare your teeth for placement and take the impressions. Once our dentists receive your restorations, you will return so that we can cement your veneers in place. Yes, it’s that simple.
