We use tooth-colored biocompatible materials that maintain the color of the tooth and look invisible to the naked eye.
A dental crown (cap) is placed over a damaged natural tooth or on top of a dental implant to restore appearance and function. On a natural tooth, the decay is removed, the tooth is prepared to create a platform and space for the crown. A digital image is made of the prepared tooth in order to fabricate a new crown. Crowns can be made out of tooth-colored materials like porcelain or precious metal like gold.
If patients prefer not to have dental implants to replace missing one or a couple of teeth, dentures and bridges are other options. Unlike dentures, Bridges are fixed, but adjacent teeth have to be prepared. Preparation involves contouring these teeth by removing the portion of tooth structure similar to a crown.
Dental veneers are very thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the facial surface of teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the facial surfaces of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
