Crowns are usually bonded to the tooth with the help of dental cement. A dental crown may be needed to:

  • Repair broken teeth

  • Cover a root canal-treated tooth

Veneers, also referred to as porcelain veneers or porcelain laminates,are thin wafer-like material, which is tooth coloured and designed to cover the front portion of the teeth. Dental veneers are indicated toCosmetic Dentistry — St-24 correct and repair chips and cracks, improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discolouration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.

Dental veneers can be of two types: composite or porcelain. Veneers made up of composite require minimal tooth preparation, but tend to stain over a period of time. Porcelain-made veneers require more tooth preparation but they resist stain better and last longer. Porcelain veneers transmit light better to create a more translucent and natural appearance.
