Porcelain Crowns and Veneers

Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns are used as a way to restore the look and function of a tooth that has been damaged as a result of decay, old restorations, or physical breaking. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations so that your teeth will last as long as possible.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth coloured crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Porcelain Crowns and Veneers

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Decayed teeth.
  • To restore a dental implant where a tooth is missing
  • Fractured fillings.
  • To protect teeth with large fillings
  • To strengthen a tooth which has a root canal treatment and needs protection from breakage.

If you live in the Townsville region and think Porcelain crowns might be right for you, get in touch with our clinic and so we can discuss your dental needs.


Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers can provide almost anyone with a fantastic new smile. Teeth veneers are a wonderful solution for people who want to achieve a great smile without committing to years of orthodontic work and teeth whitening.

Veneers are a thin, durable shell of tooth shaped porcelain. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Teeth veneers can completely reshape your smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions as they preserve more of your tooth than traditional crowns.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discoloured or stained teeth.
  • Teeth which are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.
  • Abnormalities in the formation and colour of tooth as it is developing
