What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are cemented on top of teeth. Crowns can be used for both cosmetic and restorative reasons. These include the need for a perfect smile by covering discoloured or misshapen teeth and the protection of damaged, broken, or worn-out teeth. Crowns are also used as part of a dental bridge, a dental implant, or as part of a root canal treatment to be placed on top of the treated tooth.
During your first visit, one of our Limassol dentists will examine the tooth that will receive the crown and will take X-rays of it and the jawbone around it. If needed, the dentist will reshape the tooth and then create impressions of it as well as of the teeth above or below it. This is significant so that once the crown is placed, it does not affect the rest of the teeth and subsequently, your bite. These impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where specialists will create your dental crown. When the crown is ready, you will visit the clinic again for your dental crown placement.
Dental crown lifespan and care
Dental crowns can last up to 15 years. There is not any special care to be followed, just a common dental hygiene routine.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are solely used for aesthetic reasons. Unlike dental crowns, these thin coverings are placed on the front part of the teeth to hide any imperfections and improve your smile. We use dental veneers to change the size, colour, and shape of your teeth always according to your own needs and preferences. People usually choose to have dental veneers to hide teeth stains, chipped or broken teeth or even to fill a gap between their teeth.
During your first appointment, one of our dentists in Limassol will examine your teeth and if everything looks good, they will create impressions of the teeth you want to put dental veneers on, and these impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where specialists will create your custom-made veneers. Then a small amount of enamel will be removed from your teeth to give space for the veneer placement. Once the dental veneers are ready, you will come back to our dental clinic to get your dental veneers in place. Our Limassol dentist will check the colour, size and shape of the veneers and make sure you are satisfied with them before attaching them to your teeth using dental cement.
Dental veneer lifespan and care
Dental veneers can last up to 10 to 15 years. A usual hygiene routine and protection from hard or crunchy food is very important in maintaining your veneers intact. Even though they are stain resistant you should avoid food and drinks that could potentially stain your veneers, such us wine, coffee, tea, berries.
Getting dental veneers or dental crowns in Limassol, Cyprus is a great choice. Limassol is the home of some of the best dental clinics in Cyprus and probably Europe too. Limassol dentists are excellent, they always work with attention to detail and their dental veneers always look very natural.
Dental veneers are thin teeth coverings that are only placed on the front part of teeth. Therefore, your new smile shouldn’t look unnatural. It is very important though to choose a veneer shade that is not too far from your natural teeth colour.
Porcelain crowns contain metal materials while zirconia crowns don’t. In addition, aesthetically zirconia crowns look more natural. That is why zirconia crowns are getting more and more popular and clients and dentists seem to prefer them.
Limassol dentists make sure you are happy with your new smile. Once the laboratory has the veneers ready, we will firstly check with you to see if you are satisfied with the colour, shape and size before placing them on your teeth. If you want any changes before the placement we can send the veneers back to the laboratory where the specialists will proceed with the amendments you want.
