All-Porcelain Veneers & Crowns
Porcelain restorations have been used in dentistry for decades to conceal discolored, oddly shaped or slightly misaligned teeth. Available in numerous shades with a translucency value similar to natural teeth, cosmetic dental porcelain offers both the beauty and the strength of fired ceramics.
Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry with Esthetic Porcelain
Veneers are thin, shell-like custom facings that adhere to teeth to cosmetically enhance their appearance using highly polished porcelain. They require less preparation and removal of natural tooth structure than other types of restorations and are ideal for improving the appearance of teeth that are otherwise healthy.
Sometimes, too much natural tooth structure has been lost or damaged to support a porcelain veneer. In this case, the best solution is often a crown. Porcelain crowns and bridges are used to restore both durability and esthetics; they have become the restoration of choice to replace aged crown and bridge work, and can beautifully rejuvenate a worn-looking smile.
