Porcelain dental crowns and tooth bonding can be used to partially or fully cover chipped, discolored, gapped or otherwise damaged teeth. Depending on the specific dental issues being addressed, porcelain tooth crowns and bonding can be used separately or in combination to cosmetically correct any aesthetically displeasing tooth and give you a beautiful smile.
The difference between porcelain tooth crowns and tooth bonding is that tooth crowns are porcelain 'caps' that cover the entire tooth, and tooth bonding is the process by which a custom-colored resin material is bonded to a section of your tooth and then custom-shaped to mask the appearance of small cracks or chips.
The process for evaluating and prepping your teeth for both porcelain tooth crowns and bonding begins when you schedule your complimentary smile analysis in our Georgetown, Texas office. Once Dr. Holley or Dr. Duncan has examined your teeth, you can discuss your goals and they will recommend the best procedures to use for each damaged tooth. The whole process should take no longer than one to three office visits, depending on the extent of work needed to correct your smile.
If you are located in the Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown, Texas area and you would like to improve your smile for any reason, contact us today to schedule a complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation.
