Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations that instantly transform one or more teeth by brightening, aligning, and correcting imperfections such as chips, gaps, worn teeth, discoloration, and slight misalignment. Aesthetic in nature, porcelain veneers significantly enhance the appearance of the smile, while helping to improve oral function. Utilizing this knowledge of technical and artistic elements of porcelain veneers, this treatment consistently brings results that harmonize aesthetically with facial shape and smiles of patients.
Crowns and Bridges
Why is crown and bridge treatment necessary? Losing a permanent tooth, whether due to dental decay, periodontal (gum) disease, injury or accident, can cause many serious problems for your neighboring teeth. Because the support and chewing forces are altered, the remaining teeth may begin to shift. The opposing teeth above or below the lost tooth can begin to move up or down and out of the socket, which can accelerate periodontal disease and further break down the bone structure. If the missing tooth is not replaced, more teeth may eventually be lost due to the improper forces exerted during chewing.
What is a crown? A crown — sometimes called a “cap” — is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. Used to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural, a crown is placed on an individual tooth much like a thimble over your finger. Crowns serve many functions in addition to being used to strengthen a tooth to accommodate the attachment of a fixed bridge. One of the most common is to support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. Crowns may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken.
What is a bridge and why are crowns involved? A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one must be prepared as crowns fused to porcelain. Both appearance and function are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.
