Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Crowns and bridges in cosmetic dentistry benefit from the same techniques and materials that were developed for porcelain veneers. Below please find examples utilizing the same treatment sequences and techniques that are applied for the placement of porcelain veneers for simply rejuvenating a smile.
Under certain conditions it is necessary to replace large defects or dental disfigurements that are caused by trauma, gum disease, extreme dental neglect, or other situation that lead to the loss of entire teeth. These specific dental conditions require a combination of both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. The good news is that any of these conditions can be restored to a natural-looking smile.
Do you remember having seen the big dark space that appeared when your conversation partner had this big smile in his/her face?
How often have you seen a person smiling at you and exposing a dark margin of a crown at the gum line, crowns that do not blend in with the remaining teeth because they are too bulky or too opaque?
Well, those are the crowns and bridges of the past. New materials and clinical methods allow us to create invisible tooth restorations. They include naturally translucent all-glass-ceramic crowns, porcelain veneers, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns with butt-joint porcelain margins, zirconia restorations, gingival plastic surgery, and much more.
