- A porcelain crown is a type of dental prosthesis that is placed over a tooth in order to restore its strength and overall appearance. Porcelain crowns are used to restore clinical crowns, as well as to create the look and feel of a natural tooth. Crowns may be needed in order to protect a decayed tooth, prevent breakage, restore a worn tooth, or to cover dental implants. Compared to targeted restorations, crowns may last up to 15 years if they are well cared for. While there are many types of dental crowns made of various materials, porcelain provides excellent strength, as well as the most natural, tooth-like appearance.
- Veneers are one of the more well-known cosmetic dental procedures. The procedure refers to the application of a thin, custom-fit layer of porcelain to the tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Veneers are bonded to the tooth, and may change the tooth’s shape, size, length, or color. If you are experiencing chipped, worn down teeth, misaligned teeth, or irregularly shaped teeth, veneers may be a good option for you.
- Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. It can even be done at home, with proper instructions from your dentist. Over the years, teeth can become discolored as a result of various foods, drinks, and lifestyle habits. Luckily, tooth whitening is a common and quick procedure. With at-home remedies and in-office procedures, the teeth are usually whitened using a bleaching agent to achieve a dazzling appearance.
Composite (Tooth-Colored) Restorations
- Composite restorations are a great choice for repairing imperfections on your existing teeth. Made of a durable, resin material, composite is used to restore teeth in a way that looks and feels natural. Composite can be used for a variety of restorative procedures, including filling cavities, filling gaps between teeth, and partially reshaping teeth. Composite is tooth-colored, which means it provides excellent aesthetics, while also having great durability which is necessary for daily functions.
