Do you want your smile to be your ‘crowning glory’?

When teeth are decayed, cracked, stained or have chipped, they may detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. To restore your dental health and appearance, a porcelain Crown, Veneer, Inlay or Onlay may be an option for you.

A crown is a restoration that covers, or caps, a tooth entirely to restore it to a healthy shape and size. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth. Porcelain crowns are strong, long-lasting and they look great. Virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, crowns restore function and aesthetically enhance your smile by fitting snugly over a tooth.

A veneer is a porcelain cover for the front of a tooth only (a little bit like attaching a false fingernail over your own nail). Teeth that are stained, misaligned, crooked or misshapen can benefit from dental Veneers. Bonded to the front of your teeth, veneers close gaps, mask chips and discolouration. We are able to give you a full smile makeover using porcelain veneers and give you a very natural looking smile that suits your face.

Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are 'partial crowns' which are used on back teeth (molars and premolars) where the tooth needs more than an ordinary filling can achieve, but doesn't need to be fully covered by a crown.

Crowns, Veneers, Inlays and Onlays may be placed for a number of reasons:

» To support a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
» To attach a bridge
» To protect weak teeth from fracturing
» To restore fractured teeth or teeth that have had root canal treatment
» To cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth
» To restore a dental implant

One of our main goals is to create crowns and veneers that look like natural teeth. To achieve this, a number of factors are considered such as the colour, occlusion, shape and length of both your natural teeth and the artificial crown. Any one of these factors alone can significantly affect your appearance. A number of different materials can be used to produce a crown, and these will be discussed with you at the time of treatment planning.

If you have a certain look in mind for your crown, discuss it with us at your initial appointment. When the procedure is complete, your teeth may not only be stronger but they may transform your smile and facial appearance!
