Porcelain Veneers

 

A porcelain veneer is a thin, semi-translucent laminent that is permanently bonded to your teeth.  While it may not be suitable for every patient, veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving front teeth including spaces between teeth or teeth that are crooked, broken or chipped teeth, unsightly fillings, and permanently stained or discolored teeth that cant be bleached.

 

Bonding

 

Bonding can be the perfect option to correct small imperfections on front teeth.  It is a process in which enamel like material is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculpted to an ideal shape and polished for and ideal smile.

 

Tooth Colored Fillings

 

This is a great to a traditional metal filling.  Silver filings are not utilized often anymore as they characteristically darken over time, and have a tendency to cause damage to a tooth in the long run. Silver fillings often undergo metal fatigue corroding and leaking over time. When restoring a tooth with a resin or tooth colored filling we can be conservative with the amount of tooth structure removed since the filling material is bonded to the tooth. Also since white fillings are bonded to your tooth they actually add strength to the tooth.  This is an attractive, natural looking option for restoring decayed teeth.

Dental Implants

 

Dental Implants offer a natural looking, comfortable, but most importantly permanent solution to replace missing teeth. Implants can be utilized to replace a single missing tooth, support a bridge, or secure a denture. Think of dental implants as metal anchors, usually made of titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Through a process called “osteointegration”, the jawbone actually attaches itself to the implant over time providing tremendous stability.  A lifelike ceramic restoration is then placed over the implant in order to perform the same as a natural tooth.  Implants provide a highly stable support system for the replacement tooth, bridge or denture. Because dental implants function remarkably like natural teeth, most people who get them are simply overjoyed once they realize they can chew, talk, laugh and smile with confidence!
