Crowns and Veneers

A crown is an artificial cover that encompasses the whole tooth and can be used on any tooth. They are normally used to restore decayed or damaged teeth to their normal shape and size. Crowns are used to protect the structure of a tooth that is cracked or broken. They can also be used to change the shape of a tooth, to correct a bite or even fix a cosmetic problem. A crown can be made of gold or from other metals such as amalgam, but if you’re after that natural look you might opt for white porcelain matched to the same shade as the rest of your teeth.

As the name suggests a veneer is a very thin fascia made from porcelain, which is stuck on to the front of an existing tooth using extremely strong adhesives. Veneers are generally only used on our front teeth to enhance our appearance or correct the unsightly look of one or more teeth. Many of our favourite actors, models and media personalities have at some stage whisked off to the dentist to have their set of veneers fitted.

Veneers are individually made to suit the patient’s desired result and their aesthetic properties allow them to be indistinguishable from real teeth. In fact they generally look better than a person’s real teeth. By using veneers we can reshape your teeth to look longer, wider, rounder or squarer, even make them whiter. The choice is yours and, of course, we will help guide you with what look will enhance the rest of your facial features.
