Porcelain Veneers and Crowns

The fitting of porcelain veneers and crowns is among the procedures most often requested of cosmetic dentists in Melbourne. This is because they are viable, long-term solutions to a range of dental problems.

Porcelain veneers

porcelain veneersPorcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain permanently bonded to the surface of your teeth. Veneers can be used to improve the position, shade and shape of your teeth and, in turn, the overall aesthetics of your smile. They are commonly used for a variety of dental concerns, including:

  • aged veneers needing replacement
  • crooked teeth
  • spaces between teeth
  • broken-down or badly chipped teeth
  • permanently stained or discoloured teeth.

Porcelain crowns

porcelain crownsPorcelain crowns are cap-like structures that are permanently bonded to a tooth to provide superior aesthetics and function. Sometimes referred to as caps, porcelain crowns strengthen the overall tooth structure while providing patients with positive cosmetic results. A crown fits snugly in place over part of a prepared tooth, making it stronger and restoring the shape of a natural tooth. Crowns can be used on almost any teeth and, if properly maintained, can last more than 15 years. Crowns can be used, both aesthetically and functionally, to:

  • strengthen and disguise heavily repaired or broken teeth
  • cover discoloured large fillings
  • maintain a tooth’s integrity after a root canal procedure.
