Porcelain Dental Veneers
Interested in improving your smile? Take a look at your front teeth. Are they chipped, discolored, or slightly crooked? Do any teeth tarnish an otherwise fantastic smile? You may be a perfect candidate for porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of one or more teeth to mask flaws and imperfections. They are stronger and longer lasting than fillings, and like crowns, veneers provide strength to the teeth. Unlike crowns, only a small portion of tooth surface is removed. More of your healthy tooth structure can be preserved. Veneers are translucent, allowing light to pass through them, making them look like your natural teeth and this means people notice you, not your veneers. What is most exciting is that veneers can close gaps, correct chips, and adjust the look of crowded teeth making them look straighter and more beautiful, many times in only 2 visits. When you are interested in making changes to your smile in the most natural way, veneers are the obvious choice.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
