Full and Partial Tooth Covering Restorations (Crowns and Veneers)

Crowns and Veneers: Crowns and/or veneers are used to restore teeth for therapeutic (e.g. large cavity, root canal treated tooth etc.) or esthetic (e.g. to improve the look of a patients smile) reasons. Our office uses several different laboratories located in Colorado and California to fabricate crowns and veneers depending on the specific situation. 90% of the crowns Dr. Flanigan places are either all zirconia or porcelain crowns. Zirconia is typically used on the back teeth as it is not as pretty as porcelain – though it does look good and is much stronger than porcelain. Both Zirconia and Porcelain crowns look like natural teeth.
