A hard outer shell of crystals protects our teeth. When these crystals are lost due to decay or trauma our teeth become weaker. Sometimes, we can restore the strength of our teeth with fillings; however if a large amount of our tooth structure is lost, it is necessary to strengthen the tooth with a crown. A crown covers the entire tooth, which prevents further tooth breakage.
Veneers are used to create that perfect Hollywood smile! They can be used to mask staining, restore defects in your tooth structure or in some circumstances create the illusion of straight teeth.
