Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for many types of cosmetic issues, including chipped, cracked, and stained teeth. They can also help with gaps between teeth. The procedure begins with your dentist carefully removing a small amount of enamel from the front of the affected teeth. This allows the primary structure to stay intact. From there, the veneers are placed on the front of your teeth with a powerful bonding agent. Overall, veneers improve the look of your smile while maintaining its natural strength. Each veneer is crafted to meet your precise needs — it will feel almost identical the rest of your teeth and will be color-matched to look the same as well. Veneers can help fix many cosmetic issues, so we might suggest them in a variety of circumstances. When you come in for a cleaning and checkup, do not hesitate to ask your dentist if this procedure is right for you.
Bonding & Contouring
Bonding and contouring alter the size of your teeth, as well as their shape. Both procedures are minimally invasive and are often completed in a single visit. When bonding, your dentist adds shaped and colored resin to your teeth. It can make them larger and it can close sizable gaps between teeth. Contouring, on the other hand, consists of your dentist precisely removing small amounts of enamel. It can fix chipped teeth and make them smaller. Both procedures are relatively inexpensive, straightforward, and can help you regain confidence in your smile.
While many items you find in grocery store aisles — like toothpaste and mouthwash — boast whitening power, their results are often disappointing, leaving you wanting more. Professional teeth-whitening done by your dentist, on the other hand, has proven and long-lasting results. And conveniently, it can be done from the comfort of your home. When you come in to have your teeth whitened, your dentist creates custom trays to precisely fit your mouth. You take these home with you — in addition to a whitening gel to place in them — and wear them for a couple of hours each night. After only a few weeks, your teeth will be noticeably brighter.
