A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that fits snuggly over the tooth, completely covering it. Crowns mimic the shape, color, strength and appearance of a tooth. Our cutting edge CEREC® equipment allows us to restore your damaged teeth without the waiting normally associated with traditional restorations.
CEREC® crowns are created in our office in a matter of hours, using a metal-free milling technique. The entire procedure can be completed in a couple hours so you can walk out of the appointment with a beautiful brand new tooth.
If you think you may need a dental crown, please contact SLO Smiles today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to providing you with the royal treatment you deserve.
If you’re looking to transform your smile without the use of braces or surgery, porcelain veneers may be the answer. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves wafer thin shells of tooth colored material designed to be placed over the surface of the teeth that show when you smile. Each custom made shell is bonded to the front of a tooth, which completely changes the tooth’s appearance, color, shape, size or length.
Porcelain veneers are designed to resist stains better than natural teeth and other restorations. Veneers appear natural because they mimic the way light reflects off of the surface of the teeth. Veneers can last a very long time if taken care of properly.
Continuing to follow good oral hygiene procedures will also help to lengthen the lifespan of
your veneers. Continue to brush and floss twice daily, and maintain regular dental visits for
cleanings and examination.
