2/ Porcelain Crowns or Veneers
These are especially useful if the teeth with gaps between them have already been heavily filled or are damaged. You do normally need an injection for this type of treatment as the teeth need preparation before impressions are taken. The impressions are sent to a dental lab where a dental technician will construct colour-matched crowns or veneers which are fitted on your second appointment.
While the crowns or veneers are being made your teeth will be protected with temporary restorations, usually for about 2 weeks.
In some cases the gaps may be too big to close with composite bonding or veneers, or the teeth may be too crooked to treat in this way. In these cases it will be necessary to move the teeth into a better position before further treatments are carried out.
