Porcelain Crowns & Veneers
The artistic beauty of porcelain makes it the perfect restorative material for cosmetic dentistry - a myriad of shades can be combined in the design process to achieve the luster and translucency of natural teeth. This highly polished, long-lasting material is also resistant to staining from food and beverages - so you always have a beautiful bright smile!
A dental crown is used to rebuild and cover a tooth that has been structurally compromised by decay, broken-down fillings, or trauma. Crowns can be designed with porcelain facings over metal or all-porcelain, depending on biting forces and location of the tooth in the mouth.
Your porcelain crown design begins with a thorough examination of the teeth and gums with family and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ryan Davis, to determine your smile shape, size, symmetry and oral health. To prepare a tooth for a crown, Dr. Davis will remove any decay or broken filling material and shape the tooth structures to serve as support for the crown. After the tooth is prepared, we will take impressions and work with temporary crown materials and shade guides to make sure that we achieve your esthetic goals for your smile.
Porcelain Veneers & Cosmetic Dentistry
Veneers are thin, custom-designed porcelain coverings that are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth to enhance smile appearance. Because they require minimal tooth preparation, they are often used to make cosmetic changes to otherwise healthy teeth, such as closing gaps, or to restore contour and shape to worn teeth to create a more youthful appearance. They are the ideal solution for minor smile imperfections such as stained, chipped, slightly rotated or overlapped teeth.
