Crowns and Veneers

What are crowns?
  • A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth
  • Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling
  • They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials
A dental crown can be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:
  • You may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
  • You may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
  • It may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place
The Procedure
  • Crowns can be used to mask a single dark tooth or can be part of a smile's makeover
  • The preparation of your teeth for crowns is made over two main appointments. During your first visit, your tooth will be trimmed to make room for the crown. An impression of your prepared tooth is taken so that your crown can be custom made
  • During your second appointment, the custom-made crown is bonded onto your tooth, creating a more beautiful look and strong structure that looks and feels like a natural tooth. With the proper care, your porcelain crown should last long into the future

Veneers

With porcelain veneers, you can have whiter, straighter teeth and a natural looking attractive smile that can last for years with the proper maintenance.
What are veneers?
  • Veneers are very fine porcelain shells that are placed over your natural teeth
  • Veneers change your whole smile the shape, colour and alignment of your teeth and are designed to cover stains, close gaps and straighten teeth
  • Veneers are more stain resistant than natural teeth
  • Veneers are very hard wearing and should last for a long time
  • Each veneer is individually handcrafted so that every one is unique to you
  • We practice minimalist dentistry so very little preparation is needed for your teeth
  • We don’t go for the ‘American Look’ and our veneers are designed with you in mind
  • Your input is paramount and we work with you from the very beginning
The procedure is very simple:
  • Veneers can be used to mask a single dark tooth or can be part of a smile's makeover
  • The preparation of your teeth for veneers is made over two main appointments. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared. This involves removing a layer from the front and biting edge of the tooth
  • Impressions are taken and temporary veneers are constructed
  • The second appointment involves cementing the final veneers in place where they are then polished and checked for fit
  • We make another appointment for the patients to see how they are getting on with their new smile
