All Cosmetic Dentistry options have pros and cons. There are many things to consider before having cosmetic dentistry done. Some procedures such as veneers and crowns are irreversible and may be required to be done more than once in a patients’ life time. Certain factors such as oral hygiene habits, diet, smoking and age can cause staining and/or exposure of margin areas of crowns & veneers due to gum recession. Case selection by the dentist is very important because unsuitable patients can usually expect an unfavourable cosmetic & functional outcome. The most successful outcome for suitable patients, is heavily dependant on both the technique and precision used by the dentist and laboratory technician.

A crown acts as a thimble, fitting perfectly over the whole tooth, preventing it splitting or breaking in the future. There are a number of different types of crowns. Read More
