Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom crafted to be bonded securely to your teeth. They are a fantastic way to fix front teeth or to significantly improve your smile. Our doctors can craft veneers to whiten your teeth, close spaces, and create a more appealing smile.
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, stained, or pitted fillings
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Misshapen or crooked teeth
- Whiten dark, yellowed, or stained teeth
In the past, porcelain crowns were always built upon a metal core, and if the gum tissue receded they would show an unsightly black line. Recent breakthroughs in adhesives, combined with the development of stronger porcelain materials, allow us to make crowns or partial crowns entirely out of porcelain.
The translucency of all-porcelain crowns mimics the look of a natural tooth. Without metal, the problem of the dark line is eliminated. All-porcelain crowns are placed just above the gum line, which is much healthier for you and your gum tissue.
Bonding is a process by which tooth-colored material called “composite” is applied to teeth to help repair original function or enhance the esthetics. It is a strong and lifelike material consisting of glass particles and resin and can be uses in many ways.
In the above cases one can see how fractures can be repaired and cosmetic problems such as short teeth, gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, or rotated teeth can be enhanced.
Over time your teeth darken as minerals penetrate their outer enamel layer. Foods, beverages, tobacco products, or the natural aging process can cause this. Our doctors can prescribe home whitening trays or our in-office ZOOM treatment. Either option will safely brighten your teeth into a dazzling smile.
