Porcelain Crowns and Veneers
Porcelain crowns and veneers are perfect solutions for broken teeth, heavily filled teeth, closing gaps between teeth, dark teeth and crooked teeth. They are an ideal option for improving shape, length, size and tooth colour.
With a porcelain crown, a small amount of tooth structure is removed from the entire crown of the tooth and an artificial tooth is placed over. In the case of porcelain veneers, only the visible part of the tooth is shaved and the rest of the tooth is not touched.
Porcelain veneers are a thin shell of porcelain bonding to the front of a tooth and are a more conservative option than a crown best suited to the front teeth. However, it is important that the underlying tooth is strong, healthy and not heavily filled.
All porcelain veneers like porcelain crowns are hand crafted in a local Brisbane dental laboratory rather than being sent to an overseas laboratory .We do this to ensure the quality metals and porcelains compliment the workmanship and satisfy strict Australian recommendations and expectations.
