Dental veneers are a great way to conceal chips, stains or correct tooth misalignment that detract from your smile.
The material is ultra thin and very functional with the ability to fill in gaps between teeth, alter the size and shape of teeth, help rotated teeth, or can be used to make unusual biting surfaces appear more normal.
Veneers are a more conservative alternative to crowns as they require less removal of the tooth's surface.
The color of the custom designed veneer is carefully matched to the surrounding teeth and is bonded directly to the surface of your tooth.
The results of this procedure will improve the overall appearance of your teeth. With good dental hygiene care, your veneers will give you a flawless, confident, healthy, and beautiful smile for many years to come.
Dental bonding is used to repair chipped, cracked or stained teeth, fill minor gaps, or other imperfections on a tooth.
Composite bonding is a quick process using a tooth colored plastic or composite resin that is applied directly to the teeth.
The bonding process is very popular because it requires less time than the application of porcelain veneers. Unlike veneers or crowns, composite bonding removes very little if any of the original tooth and is an excellent way to shape teeth.
Once the bonding material is applied it can be easily shaped and polished it to complement the size and finish of your surrounding teeth.
Composite bonding is also relatively inexpensive, but it should be noted it is not as durable as crowns or veneers.
Whatever the specific intent of the composite bonding is, it will leave you with a beautiful new smile
Regardless of how well you care for your teeth over time yellowing will occur. Soft drinks, coffee, tea, cigarette smoke, and the natural effects of aging will all effect the color of your teeth.
The method of teeth whitening we use is the at-home, dentist-supervised option. With this option we will mold customized mouth-trays to hold the whitening gel that you will use for a few weeks every night. You can decide how white to bleach your teeth based on your preference.
It should be noted that tooth whitening treatments will only effect your natural teeth and will have no effect on materials used for bonded, veneered or crowned teeth.
Typically whitening treatments begin to fade in one to four years - you may need to do a "touch up" to keep your teeth bright.
