Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain crafted to fit over the front surface of teeth. This popular cosmetic dentistry solution allows us to correct or conceal several flaws using one, minimally invasive treatment option. Like any procedure, it’s not right for every patient, but if you want to perfect a smile that’s marred by chips, cracks, stains, and uneven spacing between teeth, it may be the simplest solution to achieve your dream smile. The porcelain veneer process is simple and comfortable. We design and place the veneer at two separate appointments. During your first visit to our office, we’ll remove a small amount of surface tooth enamel. Then, we capture impressions that are used by our lab to create your veneer, and we place a temporary veneer that protects your prepared teeth until your final solution arrives in our office. You’ll return for a second appointment where your temporary will be exchanged for the high quality, smile perfecting porcelain veneer.
If you want to conceal smile flaws in just one visit, dental bonding may offer a viable alternative to porcelain veneers. In addition to a single appointment procedure, dental bonding is a more affordable solution. However, we don’t recommend dental bonding for patients who want to improve a large area of their smiles. If we determine that dental bonding is right for you, the process is completed in just one short visit. For most patients, we won’t need to remove any dental structure in preparation for your dental bonding procedure. We will numb the area. Then, we place a tooth-colored composite resin material directly onto the tooth. Once we’ve shaped the composite into position covering or correcting the cosmetic irregularities, we use a curing light to harden the resin into place. Finally, we’ll polish and shine the filling in order to match the surrounding dental structure.
Possibly our most popular cosmetic option, take home teeth whitening offers dramatically brighter smiles. In most cases, patients see results up to ten shades brighter in just two weeks of daily application. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, our take home kits include custom crafted application trays and a professional-grade whitening solution that offers predictably brighter results than are possible with store bought whitening products. Additionally, these professional whitening kits are customized to your unique smile brightening needs.
