What are the disadvantages of placing dental crowns comparable to porcelain veneers?

Is alloderm permanent? Will the results of alloderm be permanent, or does it have to be repeated?

.

AlloDerm : Alloderm is a structural material derived from the skin of human donors. All of the human cells are removed from the alloderm, and only the structural components of the dermis (deep layer of skin) remain. Your own tissue grows into the alloderm scaffold over time. It is routinely used to shape, volumize, and support tissues in procedures including breast reconstruction and abdominal hernia repair. Because your own tissue grows into the alloderm, it is considered permanent. Alloderm, like skin, can stretch out to some degree over time, and a potential risk is that a tight repair of an abdominal hernia may loosen and soften and bulge again. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read more
