Dental crowns can be used to improve the size, shape, strength, and/or appearance of a natural tooth. A dental crown is a “cap” or covering, that is custom made to fit the designated natural tooth and fully cover the visible portion of the tooth to the gum line. Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including glass, gold alloy, and porcelain. Porcelain crowns are most commonly used because they can be color-matched to blend in with the natural teeth. In some cases, patients may require multiple crowns in order to achieve their cosmetic goals or to strengthen and improve the appearance of weakened or damaged teeth.
Porcelain veneers are a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that can be used as an alternative to dental implants if there is minimal damage to the natural teeth. This lasting cosmetic treatment consists of thin layers of porcelain that are permanently adhered to the natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used as a lasting whitening treatment for patients who may not be candidates for professional teeth whitening treatments because the porcelain is resistant to staining. Veneers can also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen, discolored, and poorly positioned teeth.
How long will my veneers last?
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment because the natural teeth need to be reshaped in order to make room for the veneers. With proper maintenance and care, porcelain veneers can last for up to 20 years before needing to be replaced or re-bonded.
