Crowns & Veneers

A crown is a cover or cap that restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. Crowns can be made from several types of materials, including: metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin.

Reasons you may need a crown:

  • You have a cavity that is too large for a filling
  • You have a tooth that is cracked or worn down
  • You had a root canal and need to protect the restored tooth
  • You want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile

A veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front of the tooth. It can be used to correct a wide range of issues, such as:

  • Teeth that are permanently stained
  • Chipped or worn teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven spaces or a large gap between teeth

Veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin. Each type of veneer has its own benefits.

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin shell that is custom-made to fit on the front surface of your tooth.

Benefits of porcelain veneers:

  • Porcelain veneers are strong and long-lasting
  • Porcelain veneers have a natural-looking surface
  • Less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown or cap
  • Porcelain veneers don’t stain easily

Composite Resin Veneers

A composite resin veneer is made from a tooth-colored filling material that is bonded to the tooth.

Benefits of composite resin veneers:

  • Usually less tooth enamel needs to be removed than for a crown or porcelain veneer
  • Fewer visits to the dentist
  • Less expensive than porcelain veneers
  • Composite resin veneers can be repaired easily
