Porcelain Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin porcelain facings that adhere to the front of teeth. Porcelain materials beautifully mimic the luster and translucency of natural teeth, are more resistant to staining and are incredibly durable. Dental veneers require minimal tooth preparation, making them a great option to address cosmetic dental problems like chipped or worn teeth, gaps between teeth, or slightly crooked or rotated teeth.
Our dentists will work closely with you to create a plan to arrive at the size, shape and shade that best compliments your natural teeth. We may recommend teeth whitening to lighten your other teeth, and then match your porcelain restoration to your new, brighter shade.

Porcelain Dental Crowns
Dental crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth. When a crown is necessary to restore tooth structure, high quality porcelain materials can create a durable, natural-looking result. A tooth fitted with a custom dental crown will be better protected from further deterioration, preserving its place and function in the mouth for years to come.
To prepare a tooth for a crown, your dentist will remove any decay or broken filling material and shape the tooth to serve as support for the crown. A temporary crown will be placed while your porcelain crown is being fabricated. Your new porcelain crown will be crafted to perfectly match the size and shade of your other teeth; you'll return to our office for final placement and leave with a beautiful, natural-looking restoration.
Porcelain crowns are also used to complete the placement of dental implants. The implant serves as the structural support for a crown, specially designed to attach to the dental implant.
