PORCELAIN VENEERS & CROWNS
The Magic of Porcelain
The artistic beauty of porcelain makes it the perfect restorative material for dentistry – available in a myriad of shades of “white”, these may be combined to achieve the luster and translucency of natural teeth. This highly polished, long-lasting material is resistant to staining from food and beverages so you always have a gorgeous, bright smile!
Veneers are thin, shell-like custom porcelain coverings that are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth to enhance smile appearance.
Because they require minimal to no tooth preparation, veneers are often used to make cosmetic changes to otherwise healthy teeth, such as closing gaps, or to restore contour and shape to worn teeth to create a more youthful appearance.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for concealing minor smile imperfections, such as stained, chipped, slightly rotated or overlapped teeth.
Often patients that have significant staining, aged crown and bridgework, or teeth with large, discolored fillings are self-conscious about their appearance. Porcelain crowns are a beautiful, natural-looking way to achieve a fresh new look.
A crown or "cap" is used to cover a tooth that has been structurally compromised by decay, broken-down fillings, or trauma.
Crowns can be designed with porcelain facings over metal or all-porcelain, depending on biting forces and location of the tooth in the mouth.
Planning Your New Smile
Your porcelain restoration begins with a thorough examination of the teeth and gums to determine your smile shape, size, symmetry and overall oral health. Our doctors then work closely with local dental laboratory technicians to design and fabricate your porcelain veneers or crowns for proper appearance, fit, bite and speech function.
