What is facing ?
Facings are a layer of tooth-colored filler material made of composite or porcelain protection. With the help of facings, the dentist can enhance the appearance of your teeth with minimal interventions. This way he can change the shape or color of a tooth. He can also fill gaps between teeth, repair broken corners, whiten yellow or brown teeth and mask crooked teeth. We are happy to show you what is possible.
A facing is made from porcelain or composite and is applied over the surface of the tooth. In comparison with a crown, only a small piece of the front tooth needs to be ground away. This leaves a lot more of your own glazing and other tooth tissue. This has benefits for the strength of your tooth and the nerve is not damaged.
Placing a facing requires a high level of craftsmanship. It is a challenge to ensure that you get beautiful and functional teeth again. We are happy to serve you!
When it is possible to achieve the desired aesthetic result with a facing, then this is always our preference, with preference being given to composite facings because our own tooth tissue and enamel are retained. An additional advantage is that the costs of a composite facing are lower than those of porcelain.
It is important to work accurately. Our dentists are specialized and use magnifying glasses, or even a dental microscope if necessary.
