You Have Options

Tooth discoloration, broken or fractured teeth, and gaps all affect the look of your smile. Feeling self-conscious about any of these smile imperfections can create a sense of nervousness or embarrassment in social settings. With all-porcelain dental crowns and veneers, you can now mask or shield these imperfections and smile fearlessly again.

Different functionality and cosmetic goals require different approaches in dentistry to achieve optimum results. For this reason, all-porcelain dental crowns and veneers are recommended individually or as part of a larger full-mouth reconstruction based on your needs. Dr. Richard D. Weigand designs your treatment plan for crowns or veneers according to your specific functional and cosmetic goals.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are essentially caps made of durable, porcelain materials that replicate the look and feel of your natural teeth. To place a porcelain dental crown, your natural tooth may be adjusted and an impression of the tooth, and those surrounding it, will be taken to precisely create your permanent crown. Once in place, you will be left with a complete, natural-looking smile.


Ideal Use:

  • Protect Weakened Teeth from Damage or Decay
  • Restore Damaged Teeth
  • Support a Tooth with a Larger Filling
  • Support a Dental Bridge
  • Mask Cosmetic Flaws
  • Complete a Dental Implant

Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that adheres to the outer-facing portion of the tooth. In preparation, a very small amount of adjusting may be needed to allow enough room for the veneer to fit naturally onto the tooth and into the mouth. The veneer is then chemically bonded to the tooth with a resin to result in a strong, beautiful new smile.

Before and After

Ideal Use:

  • Change the Color, Shape and Size of Teeth
  • Mask Chipped or Fractured Teeth
  • Fill Gaps Between Teeth
