Dental Veneers and other Bonded Restorations

There are several similarities between a dental veneer and a dental crown. Both are custom-made moldings designed to give dental patients white, healthy teeth. First, a mould is taken of the tooth before it is sent to a dental laboratory. The veneer or crown is tailored to the patient’s mouth. Once it is sent back to the Prosthodontist, an adhesive is used to fit the crown or veneer to the patient’s tooth.

A composite posterior restoration refers to the dental procedure used to fill in spaces or holes in teeth created by a cavity or other similar tooth damage. The process is designed to restore the tooth as closely as possible back to its original strength and durability.
