Repairing Carrollton Smiles with Porcelain Veneers & Dental Crowns
Even though our teeth are meant to last a lifetime, wear, tear, and disease can lead to the need for professional repairs and restorations. Porcelain veneers and crowns are common ways to address the aesthetic effects that oral health conditions have on our teeth. Moreover, crowns can hold together diseased and damaged teeth while also reestablishing a healthy occlusion (bite). For cosmetic and restorative purposes, our dentist offers porcelain veneers and custom-made crowns to folks in our community.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are ultra thin, tooth-shaped enhancements that address the cosmetic deficiencies of a smile. They are permanently cemented over the front side of teeth to conceal permanent stains, cracks, and chips. Multiple veneers can also give the appearance of a perfectly straight smile. For patients who desire a full smile makeover, porcelain veneers are a great option to consider.
Porcelain Veneer Process
The process for receiving veneers is very individualized. After an in-depth consultation with our team, each veneer is crafted in a dental laboratory to very precise measurements. The careful and methodical nature of creating veneers is what makes these cosmetic enhancements appear natural and complementary to one’s smile. Porcelain is a very lifelike material; it comes in a number of white shades and reflects light the way that biological teeth do.
Dental crowns are custom made just like veneers and can be used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. A crown is like a cap that fits over a tooth above the gums. If a patient has suffered from a dental injury or severe decay, crowns are used to restore a tooth to its natural shape and size. Crowns can also conceal noticeably flawed teeth. Common materials for dental crowns include porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and metal alloys. Receiving crowns helps support neighboring teeth and a healthy bite.
