Porcelain Veneers & Crowns

 

A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A full coverage crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

 

A veneer covers the front and sides of your tooth and leaves more of your natural tooth structure.

 

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (matched exactly to your natural tooth shade) are the most popular and aesthetically pleasing. 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 or improve the shape, size and color of your teeth giving you a natural, long lasting, beautiful smile.

 

As with all dental restorations, the success and longevity of your Veneers or Full Coverage Crowns will largely depend on your continued home care and on maintaining the recommended dental cleaning schedule with your hygienist.

 

Reasons for Crowns/Veneers:

 

*Broken or fractured teeth

*Cosmetic enhancement

*Decayed Teeth

*Fractured or Large Fillings

*Tooth has had a Root Canal and patients bite necessitates need for Crown

 

What Does getting a Crown/Veneer involve?

 

A crown/veneer procedure usually requires just two appointments. Your first appointment will include slight reduction of your tooth structure and then taking several highly accurate molds (often called impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown/veneer.

 

You will leave your first appointment with a temporary crown that will be fabricated in our office and will stay on your tooth for 2 weeks while a professional dental laboratory fabricates your permanent crown/veneer to exactly match your other teeth.

 

At your second appointment the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown placed and your bite checked for perfect occlusion.

 

Your new restoration (s) will be checked at your regular cleanings in our office.
