Veneers & Crowns

Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve aesthetics by correcting discoloured, cracked and chipped teeth or to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Veneers can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use.

How It Works

The process of providing a veneer involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process. Veneers can be carried out in one visit in our surgery.

Crowns

Crowns cover or "cap" a tooth to restore the normal function and appearance of a tooth. Crowns may be made from metal, porcelain, or both. Crowns are indicated for teeth with very large fillings, teeth that have had a root canal, fractured teeth, worn teeth and misshapen and/or discolored teeth. Crowns are cemented onto the existing tooth and becomes the outer surface of the tooth.

What to expect?

Typically 2 appointments - At the first appointment, an impression is made of the tooth or teeth, and a temporary bridge is made which will protect the tooth until the next appointment. At the second appointment, the final bridge is fitted to the tooth and cemented. For teeth in the smile line, sometimes a lab technician will be present in order to match the color of the adjacent teeth for a perfect match.

Consider crowns if you:

  1. Have one or more missing teeth
  2. Have a broken tooth or large filling
  3. Want to replace a silver filling with something more esthetic.
