  1. Full or partial crown coverage
    A crown, sometimes known as dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Dental crown material can be full gold, porcelain fused to metal or all porcelain.

  2. Dental Inlay/Onlay
    An inlay as "a dental restoration made outside of a tooth to correspond with the form of a prepared cavity and then cemented into the tooth.

    An onlay is defined as a cast metal restoration that overlays cusps, thus lending strength to the restored tooth.

  3. Aesthetic porcelain veneers
    A dental veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, improves the aesthetics of a smile and/or protect the tooth's surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain. A compositeveneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental lab, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated. Laminate veneer, on the other hand, is a thin layer that covers only the surface of the tooth and generally used for aesthetic purposes.
