Porcelain crowns solve a whole host of dental problems and can greatly improve your dental health. The process of making a crown first involves preparing the tooth to the desired shape. Impressions of the teeth are then taken, from which the laboratory can fabricate the crown. Once fabricated, the crown is fitted over the tooth surface and bonded in place using special dental bonding cements. The shape, size, color and surface characteristics of a crown are precisely matched to the surrounding teeth. Once fitted, a porcelain crown affords a seamless and permanent restoration of a tooth.
Tooth Bonding also known as White or Tooth Coloured Filling is a relatively low cost, single-visit procedure whereby a layer of composite is 'bonded' to the surface of the tooth. Tooth Bonding is not always appropriate for teeth with large cavities. A more effective and long lasting alternative is to place porcelain restorations such as inlays or crowns.
Porcelain veneers are a cost effective and popular restorative treatment to rejuvenate teeth with discolouration and chips. Veneers are made up of a thin shell of porcelain that is permanently bonded to the tooth surface. This improves the position, shape and shade of your teeth.
