A crown is an artificial tooth used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. It can be used to restore the shape, appearance and function of a damaged tooth.
Crown placement may also be necessary following root canal treatment, if the tooth has a large filling or is broken. The crowns can also be used to cover discolored teeth or to change the appearance of a tooth.
The facets are small, very thin shells, made of porcelain or composite resin, which are fixed on the front part of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are stronger, do not stain and do not change color. In general, at least 2 visits are required for the application of porcelain veneers, while only one is required for composite resin veneers. In general, porcelain veneers last longer than composite resin veneers.
Facets are not suitable in all cases. Our team can offer treatments other than faceting in certain situations, including:
What you should know
Veneers are an irreversible treatment since some of the enamel has been removed. Porcelain or composite resin veneers may chip if you are not careful when biting hard foods or chewing food. You must not bite into hard objects like ice cubes or nails. Do not open packages with your teeth.
