Aesthetic Oral Rehabilitation with Veneers & Crowns | Medidental Lisbon

VENEERS AND CROWNS

Dentistry is the aesthetic area of oral rehabilitation concerned with dental restoration – veneers and crowns – which consist in unnoticeable coatings on natural teeth whose enamel has deteriorated or been damaged due to some incident or pathology.

Dental veneers thus act as a kind of extremely fine coating that is only applied on the front of the slightly worn tooth.

These “covers” – which may be of porcelain/ceramic, resin or dental contact lens – are ideal for less complex situations, normally for the correction of colour and/or shape.

Dental veneers are ideal for less complex situations, normally for the correction of colour and/or shape, acting as an extremely fine coating that is applied on the front of the slightly worn tooth.

These solutions may be a coating (of porcelain/ceramic or dental contact lens), made in the laboratory and which is placed on the tooth, or it may be of resin, a plaster that is applied uniformly in the consulting room.

On the other hand, the dental crowns are prostheses that cover the whole tooth, and as such are the best solution for more extreme cases, namely devitalisation (endodontics) or where only the root is in good condition.

Currently, there are countless options for dental crowns in the market: pure ceramic (or porcelain), metal-ceramic, zirconium, composite resin, acrylic resin, on implants and Richmonds (or dental pivot).

Ask our professional team of dentists (specialists in dental aesthetics) about your best option, taking various decisive factors into account such as: quality, price, durability, aesthetics and comfort.

We would also point out that dental restoration, whether with crowns or veneers, are personalised solutions, in terms of dimensions and colour of the teeth, always taking the other teeth into account.

  • Broken teeth
