Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
Porcelain veneers and crowns can be used by a NYC dentist to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile while addressing dental problems that may arise from weaknesses in teeth caused by teeth that are broken, cracked or severely worn.
Veneers can be recommended by a dentist in New York for either cosmetic reasons or for the protection of a tooth that has been damaged. Porcelain veneers are often used in cosmetic dentistry when one or more teeth have been noticeably discolored. The veneers allows the patient to experience a white smile when discoloration cannot be remedied through the use of teeth whitening or bleaching.
Porcelain veneers may be used to restore the positive aesthetic qualities of several teeth. Sometimes veneers are used following orthodontic procedures if gaps are left behind. The veneers are able to fill the gaps that may be present if teeth that were being straightened through an orthodontic procedure were too small to completely fill in these gaps.
Damage caused by cracks in teeth or fillings can be strengthened through the use of porcelain veneers to avoid further damage in the future that may result from weakness in these areas.
One of the biggest advantages of porcelain veneers is that few visits to the dental office are necessary for the planning and placement of veneers. Many patients only require two appointments to complete the process.
Crowns are typically used to protect or replace parts of a damaged tooth. Porcelain crowns are preferred over metal crowns when the patient has a metal allergy or for cosmetic reasons. The color and consistency of a porcelain crown makes it the ideal choice for patients who wish to maintain the aesthetic qualities of their smile.
A patient may receive a crown following a dental procedure that requires a large amount of one or more teeth to be removed. One procedure that is typically followed by the placement of a crown is a root canal.
Crowns may also be used for protection if a tooth has been broken, cracked or worn.
