Crowns and veneers
A crown, also known as a dental cap, is a restoration which covers or encircles a tooth or dental implant. A crown is needed when a significant amount of tooth structure is lost. Most crowns are made in house using digital dentistry and only require one visit.
A Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain bonded to the visible surface of the tooth. This is most commonly used to enhance the esthetic shape and color, without compromising the health of the tooth. Patients can have a beautiful new smile with minimal loss of natural tooth structure.
A filling is most commonly used treat a cavity, but it is also used to repair cracked or broken teeth. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, cleaned, and then filled with a restorative material. There are many different types of fillings and restorative materials including composite resins and glass ionomers.
