  • Veneers may be recommended for simple cosmetic imperfections on the outer-facing portion of a tooth.

From minor smile imperfections such as chips or stains, to larger full-mouth treatment plans, dental crowns and porcelain veneers are cosmetic solutions that can work individually or cooperatively. They each help to improve the smile, both cosmetically and functionally, so you can smile brighter.

Dental Crowns

When a filling cannot adequately replace enough of the tooth to keep it healthy and stable, a dental crown may be a recommended alternative. Crowns are caps that go over the tooth, covering it on all sides to protect it from further decay or hide an aesthetic imperfection.
