Esthetic crowns and veneers are custom-made dental restorations designed to improve the appearance and function of teeth. Crowns and veneers are made from durable materials, such as porcelain or ceramic, and are used to cover the entire tooth (crowns) or just the front surface (veneers).
Esthetic crowns and veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, cracked, or misshapen. They can also restore the function of damaged teeth, such as those with large fillings or decay.
Crowns cover the entire tooth, while veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth. Crowns are typically used for more extensive damage, such as a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy or has a large filling. Veneers are a less invasive option for improving the appearance of teeth with minor imperfections, such as stains, chips, or gaps.
The process for getting esthetic crowns or veneers typically involves several appointments with Dr. Jaber Elias. During the first appointment, Dr. Jaber will examine your teeth, take x-rays, and make impressions of your teeth to create custom crowns or veneers. Dr. Margarita Jaber Elias may also need to prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. At a subsequent appointment, your custom crowns or veneers will be placed and adjusted for a comfortable fit.
With proper care and maintenance, esthetic crowns and veneers can last for many years. It's important to practice good oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing regularly, and to visit Dr. Jaber Elias for regular check-ups and cleanings.
