Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
If you have heard of "crown-lengthening," "crown-extension," or "crown-elongation," you have heard of a way of dental contouring. Cosmetic or restorative dentistry sometimes calls for the use of dental crowns to replace missing teeth.
Dental veneers are a great way to correct the appearance of your teeth. These porcelain covers bind directly to the surface of your teeth and cover their entirely, offering a solution to crooked, discolored, or chipped/cracked teeth. They are unidentifiable when compared to natural teeth and are resistant to stains. They are long lasting with proper care. They are pretty strong as well, mores than bonding can be and with the best possible care can last well over a decade before requiring replacement.
In a dental bonding procedure, we use a composite resin to repair damage to your teeth or to cosmetically enhance a damaged or discolored tooth. This resin is moldable, and it allows us to shape it and mold it to fit your mouth comfortably while filling cavities, cracks, chips, or covering discoloration. The process is simple but takes skill. We have years of experience making us more than qualified to help you out.
Inlays and onlays are a great cosmetic solution for moderate tooth damage, too far gone for a filling and the tooth still too viable to warrant a crown or root canal. They each do the same thing, repairing damage or replacing a lost filling. However, an inlay lies within the cusp of your tooth while an onlay can repair damage on or exceeding the limits of your cusp. These are only on your molars.
