Dental veneers, also known as ‘porcelain veneers’, ’teeth veneers’ or ‘dental porcelain laminates’ are wafer-thin shells made from either porcelain or a resin composite. They are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to improve the appearance of tooth shape, colour, size and alignment.
Dental veneers can assist in creating a straight, symmetrical white smile and are an ideal solution for people wanting to improve the appearance of:
Provide dynamic colour variation and translucency which mimics the appearance of tooth enamel to create a natural looking smile.
Can last up to 15 years, depending on the type of veneer selected and how well the veneers are maintained.
Requires minimal tooth reshaping (if any).
Veneers are not a good choice for individuals who clench and grind their teeth; have unhealthy, weakened teeth; or have an inadequate amount of existing enamel on the tooth surface. The initial appointment with our dentist will confirm your suitability.
A full coverage dental crown is a way of restoring a badly damaged tooth and it will protect the entire structure of the tooth. Our dental crowns look and feel like natural teeth. They are durable and strong and designed to last you for many years.
Dental crowns provide a durable and long-lasting solution for restoring teeth that have suffered extensive decay, fractures, or damage.
Once placed, dental crowns feel and function like your natural teeth. They are comfortable, stable, and do not shift or move within your mouth.
By restoring the size, shape, and alignment of damaged teeth, dental crowns can help improve your bite and overall chewing ability. This allows you to enjoy a wider range of foods and maintain proper nutrition.
Crowns fully encapsulate the tooth, creating a protective barrier that seals out bacteria and reduces the risk of recurrent decay. This can help preserve your natural tooth and avoid the need for extraction.
Crowns are designed to mimic the natural colour, shape, and contour of your teeth. They can improve the appearance of discolored, misshapen, or severely stained teeth, therefore enhancing your smile.
A dental bridge is a way of restoring your smile when a tooth is missing. We often recommend a bridge for patients who have lost a tooth, leaving a space with teeth on either side. Our dentists can close this gap by placing dental crowns on the teeth on either side and connecting a false tooth to the crowns.
Close the gap created by missing tooth.
Improve your biting function so you can enjoy the foods you love.
