Veneers are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped or crooked teeth. By bonding a thin ceramic porcelain coating to the front surfaces of your teeth you can be provided with a bright, straight and natural looking smile instantly. Porcelain veneers are extremely durable, stain resistant and easy to maintain.
Achieving a healthy and natural result with the placement of porcelain veneers is a skill that requires precision, planning and the artistry of a talented cosmetic dentist. Here at Logan Village Dental we will always invest the necessary time and attention to detail required, ensuring you get the best result possible.
For minor chips, cracks and discolorations, dental bonding (or composite veneers) may be all that is needed to enhance your smile.
Dental bonding is a quicker and more cost effective technique that can often be offered as an alternative to porcelain veneers.
Porcelain Crowns vs. Porcelain Veneers
Both porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers have unique advantages and limitations that make them appropriate for treating specific dental concerns. For example, all ceramic or porcelain dental crowns improve both the appearance and function of injured or damaged teeth. They cover and protect all of the surface area of a tooth, eliminating pain and restoring strength.
Porcelain veneers on the other hand typically address only cosmetic concerns and are often applied to otherwise healthy teeth. Stains, minor chips, misalignment or other imperfections can be well concealed with the thin porcelain shells, which slide over the front surface of teeth. Their greatest advantage is that as they cover less of the natural tooth, minimal tooth structure has to be removed to accommodate a porcelain veneer.
All of the above treatment options are available at Logan Village Dental, and our friendly staff would be happy to discuss them in greater detail with you. We are happy to provide a range of treatment options, tailored to your requirements, goals and budget.
