Veneers & Crowns
When it comes to correcting the appearance and improving the overall design, shape and symmetry of teeth, there are two main treatments available. Your dentist will be able to advise on the most suitable option for your needs, but they are outlined below for information.
Crowns are strong caps which sit over the top of your teeth. They can be used to cover teeth which have broken or become severely decayed, or to correct a very discoloured tooth, for example where the nerve has died. They can be made from various materials and we can make them look extremely natural where the untrained eye wont be able to determine whether a crown is present or not
Veneers are also used to correct discoloured teeth as well as reducing gaps between teeth and adjusting the overall appearance where teeth are badly positioned or the shapes are not symmetrical with the rest of the teeth. They can make small teeth/smile improve drastically and have been used to create perfect yet natural looking smiles. We mostly use these options to create beautiful smile makeovers for our clients from around Wigan and Skelmersdale.
Both crowns and veneers are permanent solutions to dental problems, leaving you able to go back to your daily life without worrying about the condition or appearance of your teeth. At St Raphael’s, our dentists are highly experienced in the use of crowns and veneers and are able to use the latest technology and methods to produce the best possible results for many years to come.
As with all treatments, our dentists will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth in order to assess your needs. They will then create a treatment plan tailored to you and you will be able to ask any questions you have and make your own decision about how to proceed. We also offer various payment options including 0% interest finance.
