All our veneers and crowns are all made of ceramics, a natural substance that is particularly well tolerated by the body and is very similar to the natural enamel of the tooth. Both materials are extremely durable and there is no difference in expansion by heat and cold, so it has no influence on each other. Because there is no metal in ceramic one knows not the problem of metal in the mouth and unnecessary electrical stress that you encounter between such a golden crown and is adjacent amalgam filling. Metal-free restorations, which is something people are increasingly striving.

3. What Are the Disadvantages of Dental Veneers? It takes roughly a week or two of a period of adjustment to get used to your teeth that have been changed in color, size, spacing and shape.

It is common to have minor sensitivity after your teeth have been prepared for your veneers while wearing the temporary veneers.

If you suffer from bruxism, clenching or grinding of your teeth, veneers can be damaged, chipped or cracked from this.

Veneers are not a good choice for individuals with unhealthy teeth (for example, those with decay or active periodontal disease), weakened teeth (as a result of decay, fracture, large dental fillings) or for those who have an inadequate amount of existing enamel on the tooth surface.

4. What is a crown?

A crown is a type of dental restoration, which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. While inarguably beneficial to dental health, the procedure and materials can be relatively expensive.
