    Crowns consist of a cover placed over the natural teeth to restore both function and dental aesthetics.

    Dental crowns improve the appearance of dental pieces with large restorations, or morphological alterations.

    ¿Important functions of a Crown?

    • Restore the appearance of the tooth; if it is severely degraded or cracked.
    • The teeth are the support of the facial muscles, so the loss or malfunction of one tooth can affect the way you look.

    In some cases crowns can be used to correct misalignments of the teeth in cases in which orthodontics is not an option.

    Dental crowns, after being cemented completely, surround the entire visible portion of the tooth that lies at and above the gum line, giving excellent results of cosmetic dentistry.

    When the crowns are recommended?

    We recommend placing a dental crown for several reasons, most of them fit into one of the following categories:

    • • To restore a tooth or its original form
    • •To strengthen the tooth.
    • • To improve the aesthetic appearance.

    How can dental crowns restore the shape of a tooth?

    Once a porcelain crown is attached, it becomes the new outer surface of the tooth. Dental crowns are often made for teeth that have been worn down excessively, have been broken, or have been damaged by tooth decay.

    Placing a dental filling may, alternatively, be used as a means for restoring the shape of a tooth; however, Crowns offer a great advantage over dental fillings made "away from your mouth." By this we simply mean that crowns are made in a dental laboratory (by a technician using plaster molds of your teeth that your dentist previously made). Dental fillings, in comparison, are created "in your mouth"; dentists place filling material directly on the tooth.

    When a dental crown is made, the dental laboratory technician can visualize and examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements, from a variety of angles. Then the crown is carved with the perfect anatomy needed. In some cases this anatomy is better than the original form of the tooth.

  • Dental Resin

Some dentists call them "amalgam restorations" but they actually contain more mercury than silver. Besides, dental resins are accepted by patients because they represent a more advanced technology.

    Resins harmonize with the white colors of the tooth, these are applied on fractured teeth, and teeth treated for cavities providing dental aesthetics, beauty and function to your smile.

  • Porcelain Veneers

    A person’s smile is their personal business card; when you interact with others it is precisely your smile what people are going to notice first and therefore, it is worth keeping your teeth in the best conditions possible.
    If you have stained, misaligned or broken teeth, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you.

    Veneers are made of porcelain, designed to cover the front of the tooth. These thin films are placed in the frontal part of the tooth; with this method the dentist can modify the length, width, color and shape of a natural tooth.

    It is the ideal tool to improve the aesthetics of a smile; veneers are versatile, strong, and used in a variety of transformations: from repairing a chipped tooth and teeth stains, to restore a tooth to its natural beauty, giving a brilliant white appearance to your smile.

    Veneers are usually recommended to correct and improve a series of dental conditions such as:

    • • Gaps between the front teeth
      • Teeth with permanent stains
      • Partially fractured or broken teeth
      • Deformed teeth, among others.

    You can also choose to create a whiter smile by combining tooth whitening with veneers.
    This treatment of porcelain veneers require more than one session to be completed.
    Once all this process is completed, the veneers will be adhered to your teeth and they will look natural, perfect and brilliant.
