Porcelain Crowns & Veneers
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength; improving functionality and appearance. When cemented in place, a crown will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth. This differs from an onlay, which replaces a portion of the tooth and helps to preserve a tooth’s structure.
Finally, a dental veneer is a material made of composite and porcelain placed over a tooth. Veneers improve aesthetics and protect a tooth’s surface.
Your dentist will help you choose the right option to brighten your smile or repair a tooth.
