Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only applied to the part of the tooth that is visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory.  At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic and are very aesthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.

Non Metal Crowns (more information under full reconstructions):

A dental crown is a tooth shaped "cap" placed over a prepared tooth to resore size shape of the tooth for function and esthetics.

  • Protect a tooth that has been broken down from decay or fracture
  • To support and protect an endodontically treated tooth (root canal treatment) which often renders a tooth more brittle and vulnerable to to fracture
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • A crown can act as anchors for a bridge which can be used to replace missing teeth
  • A crown is the restorative portions of an implant that looks feels and functions as a natural tooth
  • For cosmetics a crown can cover misshaped or discolored enamel

White Fillings

White fillings allow a youthful more beautiful look after removing the old fillings and replacing them with bonded white fillings. Besides looking better, these teeth are now more resistant to fracture and micro-leakage of harmful bacteria.
