Veneers and Crowns

Cosmetic dentistry has advanced dramatically in the past few years. The opportunities that are now available to improve your smile and strengthen your teeth are dramatic.

The most important development in cosmetic dentistry has been the development of all-ceramic crowns, which allow us to provide a restoration that has the same characteristics and appearance as enamel. The traditional crown used has been a metal crown covered with porcelain, which requires an opaque white layer to mask the darkness of the metal, and as a result does not allow natural light translucency. The newer all-ceramic materials more closely resemble the light translucency properties of enamel.

There are a number of all-ceramic types, including feldspathic porcelain, different types of zirconium, Empress, Procera, and E-max. It is important that the right type of system is used for each particular case as they all have different advantages and disadvantages. We are happy to work with all systems and are happy to discuss with you why we would recommend a particular type of porcelain.

Dental veneers are made of thin porcelain, similar to a fake fingernail that fits over the front surface of your tooth. They can be made very thin so very little tooth needs to be drilled away, and with the right material they can be made fairly strong. They allow a very conservative and highly aesthetic result. It is common to place 2, 4, 6, or 8 veneers at the one time to ensure maximum aesthetics.

Dental crowns can be considered more like a cap that fits over the whole tooth to provide strength to broken teeth, heavily filled teeth, or after root canal treatment.

Dental inlays and onlays are sometimes an option for heavily filled teeth. They are more conservative than a full crown and allow for the preservation of natural tooth structure. With all-ceramic materials and the latest in bonding techniques, they are a very reliable and predictable option.
