Porcelain Veneers

Often an alternative to crowns or even orthodontic treatment, veneers are thin pieces of custom-shaped porcelain which are bonded to the surface of your teeth. They are an answer for teeth that are discolored or chipped, are misshapen or crooked, or for the correction of unwanted or uneven spaces.

Unlike crowns, veneers typically do not require the removal of much of the tooth. Veneers are created from an impression taken in our office. Your custom veneer is then bonded directly to your tooth. Strong and durable, veneers typically last from ten to fifteen years or more, do not stain, and can be made in any shade or shape in order to enhance one’s smile and function.

Resin Bonding

Resin bonding is a common solution for:

  • Fixing or repairing chipped or cracked teeth.
  • Reducing unsightly gaps or spaces between teeth.
  • Hiding discoloration or faded areas on the tooth’s surface.

Resin bonding is often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. As the name indicates, resin is bonded to an existing tooth. Unlike veneers or crowns, resin bonding removes little, if any, of the original tooth.

Resin bonding has many advantages:

  • It is a relatively quick process.
  • It usually does not require removal of the tooth’s original structure and is relatively inexpensive.
  • Resins come in many different shades and provide a match to the natural color of your teeth.

Professional Tooth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the process of restoring discolored or stained teeth to or beyond their natural shade. Teeth whitening is the most commonly requested type of cosmetic dentistry and the cost of teeth whitening is affordable. Cosmetic teeth whitening procedures are simple and result in a gorgeous smile.
