Sometimes, when an anterior tooth is chipped, one conservative procedure to restore the tooth shape and strength is to cement on a porcelain veneer. It is a thin (fingernail-like) laminate of porcelain, which is strengthened when bonded onto the front surface of the tooth.
Veneers can also be used to cover very dark teeth as well as straighten out or give the illusion of straight teeth. It can be used as a cosmetic aesthetic procedure or a conservative functional
alternative to a full-coverage crown.
White Fillings Protect Your Teeth
White fillings are metal-free resin composite materials that can be matched to the shape and color of your natural tooth.
White filling is a conservative procedure that minimizes tooth cutting while getting rid of metal silver amalgam fillings that can sometimes leak mercury into the surrounding tooth structure.
