Porcelain Veneer/Porcelain Crowns (Natural Looking)


Do you have damaged teeth or tooth decay that prevents you from having a bright smile?  Dr. Yassamy can treat both and give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

At the San Marino, California area cosmetic dental office of Dr. Fary Yassamy, we are driven by a passion to help our patients get the dental results they deserve.  We focus on restoring the foundation of your oral health before we work on the aesthetics, so that your bright smile is natural and healthy looking.

Two of the cosmetic dentistry solutions we offer are porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns.  Both dental procedures can cover or correct mild to moderate tooth damage.  Dr. Yassamy can recommend a procedure that is most appropriate for your unique needs.

Why Choose Porcelain

Both the dental veneers and dental crowns we use are made from porcelain.  Porcelain is used because it is the most natural looking material to match your tooth enamel.  It can be matched to exactly the shade of your other natural teeth, and does not change color over time.  Porcelain, like your natural enamel, is semi-translucent, reflecting some light, as well as absorbing some.  The result is a pearly glow, like your natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin and used to cover the front of the teeth. We can restore eight to ten teeth, including the posterior bicuspids.  This covers the teeth seen in a typical smile.  Less than a millimeter of the natural enamel is shaved off for the bonding and placement of your porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers can correct:

  • Discoloration not helped by teeth whitening
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Large chips
  • Uneven teeth
  • Worn down teeth

Porcelain veneers are a versatile answer for a variety of dental issues you might have.  To combine restoration and tooth whitening solutions, porcelain veneers may be the best choice for you.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are used when much more of your tooth needs to be restored.  Crowns have been used for decades to preserve teeth.  Crowns are generally used on teeth when they are badly broken or have significant decay.  They are also very strong.  Crowns are the best choice for teeth used primarily for chewing and biting.

Dr. Yassamy may recommend porcelain crowns for:

  • Badly broken teeth
  • Large areas of tooth decay
  • Replacing weak or existing large fillings

Porcelain crowns are a permanent restoration to your damaged tooth or teeth.  If taken care of properly, porcelain crowns can last a very long time. 

Both porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are effective ways of correcting damage or decay your teeth may have, as well as creating a whiter and more beautiful smile.
