Porcelain Crowns & Veneers
Porcelain is a material that can be used to alter the length, width and shape of your teeth. It has been used extensively in cosmetic dentistry to produce a ‘Hollywood smile’.
Porcelain can be used as a veneer, covering just the front surface of the tooth or it can be used as a crown, covering the entire tooth.
Porcelain has several advantages when compared with composite: it is superior aesthetically and has much better longevity, with less risk of staining and chipping.
Unfortunately porcelain often requires some drilling of the natural tooth.
