Crowns and Veneers

Crowns and Veneers are ways of restoring your smile with a strong and aesthetic material. Crowns and veneers require our dentists to work closely with our Brisbane-based dental technician to achieve an optimal result for you.

Making a crown for your tooth involves preparing the tooth to the desired shape and taking an impression. This allows our Brisbane-based technician to make the crown to the exact shape and size needed for you. When the crown is inserted we ensure that the colour match is appropriate for you, and that your bite is comfortable.

Crowns may be made from a highly aesthetic all ceramic material which is very strong, or may have a underlying metal framework with porcelain overlying this for an aesthetic result.

Veneers are very thin porcelain shells which are bonded to the tooth. Veneers improve the shape and colour of the tooth to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

When a crown and veneer may be beneficial for you:

  • Appearance improvement: badly discoloured or misshapen teeth can be rejuvenated with a crown to improve your smile.
  • Strengthen a cracked tooth to prevent crack lines progressing further.
  • Relieve the sensitivity of a cracked tooth.
  • Situations when a filling isn’t suitable for the tooth – this could be due to the size of the filling required.
