Veneers are thin custom-made shells that cover the front of the teeth or around the sides if the teeth have gaps. They are crafted from tooth-colored porcelain materials. They cover unattractive gaps, stains, discolorations and correct minor crookedness to appear straight.
Veneers are intended to last for many years, typically 10 to 20. They will not change color over time like natural teeth will. The tooth may not need any shaping, but some cases require minimal tooth reduction to allow for the veneer not to appear bulky or to correct rotated teeth. Impressions are made of the teeth and a temporary is placed only if needed. A laboratory fabricates the veneers from a model then returned to the office in two to three weeks. At a second appointment, the veneer is bonded to the tooth after inspection of color and fit. Veneers are cared for just like teeth, they will feel very natural. The Veneers after bonding are as strong as the teeth and just like with natural teeth, they can chip with hard impacts and certain habits like chewing ice and fingernail biting.

Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we'll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 - 8 shades!
Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for this type of whitening.
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied an, LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
