Crowns & Veneers at Iconic Smiles

A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain about 1 mm in thickness, that’s bonded to the front of your existing tooth.

Ceramic crowns are around 2 mm in thickness and covers the whole tooth.

Your dentist at Iconic Smiles will discuss what is right for you depending on the condition of your teeth, but both are great options to restore discoloured and cracked teeth.

The Benefits

Crowns & Veneers

Close spaces and gaps

Veneers can be used to close gaps between teeth and provide an alternative solution to orthadontics.

Save weakened teeth

Once decay and damaged enamel have been removed, your dentist will place a porcelain crown to protect your natural tooth.

Natural looking

Crowns and Veneers look and feel like your normal teeth.

Step-By-Step Treatment Plans


Your dentist will carry out the necessary oral health checks and arrange for digital scans, x-rays and a 'trial smile' so you can see what your final smile will look like.

Second appointment

Your teeth are minimally prepared to create enough space for your porcelain or metal veneers/crowns.

Temporary fitting

Your dentist at Iconic Smiles will provide temporary veneers/crowns for around 2-3 weeks.

Final Restoration

Your new veneers and crowns are carefully bonded to your teeth. Maintain regular dental & hygienist visits to keep both your gums and teeth in great health.


The most frequent questions, answered!

What’s the difference between veneers and crowns?

A porcelain veneer is bonded to just the front surface of your tooth, while a dental crown covers your entire tooth. This tends to make veneers more aesthetically pleasing than crowns because they show less gum margin. Crowns are thicker than veneers - 2 mm compared to 1 mm - and are more permanent.

Can I get tooth decay with veneers and crowns?

Often surprising patients, dental crowns and veneers do not serve as a helmet against the regular risks bacteria poses to our oral health. If you neglect your dental hygiene and fail to do your part to upkeep your oral health, you may develop tooth decay under your crowns and veneers.

When are crowns a better choice than veneers?

Since crowns can greatly reinforce the strength of a weakened tooth, they are the treatment of choice for teeth that have been broken, are seriously cracked, or recently received root canal therapy. If your tooth needs structural help as well as cosmetic improvement, then a crown is the logical choice, especially for teeth such as molars that must endure lots of stress.

How long do crowns and veneers last?

Porcelain fused material and porcelain crowns last for 5 to 15 years. Metal crowns can last for 20+ years.

What are the benefits of crowns?

Dental crowns are custom made to fit your smile - your dentist at ExperDental will design your crown according to your exact specifications in terms of shape, size, colour, and fit.

Little recovery time - patients can resume their normal oral hygiene routine such as brushing and flossing the next day.

They will help restore your smile - since they fit over the tooth, they can instantly correct discolouration, staining, misshapen teeth, crookedness, chips, cracks, fractures, and more.

What are the benefits of veneers?

If you are concerned about misshapen, chipped or discoloured teeth, veneers can offer a long-lasting cosmetic solution with a natural finish.

The porcelain finish mimics the qualities of natural teeth, helping you achieve a brighter, natural looking smile.

Porcelain veneers are also more stain resistant and durable. If looked after properly, they should last for many years.

Veneers offer a gentler approach to altering a tooth’s shape or colour than crowns, as only a small amount of enamel has to be removed to fit the veneer. However, they offer similar strength and very natural looking results.
