Veneers, Bridges and Crowns
Veneers (also called porcelain veneers or laminates) are very fine, custom made ‘covers’ that are very strongly adhered to the front of your teeth and allow you to talk and chew normally. They are made of thin, stain-resistant porcelain or resin composite materials. Veneers can improve the look of teeth that are damaged or stained. They are also effective at improving the appearance of crooked teeth or gaps between teeth.
A bridge is a solution for a missing tooth or teeth, it ‘bridges’ the gap left by missing teeth and is supported by the teeth on either side of the gap. When done correctly they are indistinguishable from your existing teeth and can last for many years. At Orewa Dental Centre they can fit you with a bridge in just two appointments.
Crowns are ‘caps’ which are custom fit over the top of your teeth, they are used in instances where teeth with large fillings are weakened and can cause all kinds of problems. Tooth vulnerabilities such as cracks in fillings make them tender to bite on or sensitive to hot or cold. Crowns are used to protect heavily filled teeth.
Crowns are also be used cosmetically to improve the appearance of teeth, when fitted correctly they look like perfect, natural teeth. At Orewa Dental Centre we can tell you which of your teeth would best be protected by crowns, to prevent problems before they develop.
