Are you ready for a total smile transformation? Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of ceramic that we permanently attach to the fronts of teeth. Their purpose is to disguise a wide range of cosmetic flaws, including cracks, chips, discolorations, and minor misalignments. The process for placing veneers usually only requires two appointments in our office, and the results of the treatment can last for 20 years or longer with proper care.
In today’s modern world, patients no longer have to choose between dental restorations that are reliably functional and ones that are aesthetically pleasing. All-ceramic, metal-free materials provide the best of both worlds! They’re so lifelike in appearance that these types of crowns, inlays, and onlays even reflect light in the same way as natural tooth enamel. They’re also fully biocompatible, which means there’s no risk of allergic reactions or severe oral sensitivity.
If you’re interested in making relatively small corrections to your smile (like filling in a thin gap between teeth or repairing a crack in the enamel), cosmetic bonding may be the perfect solution. This procedure typically only takes a single appointment, during which one of our doctors will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the dental surface and sculpt it into a pleasing, subtle addition that blends right in. The beautiful results can last for several years at a time.
Inlays and onlays, also called “indirect fillings,” are restorations use to treat decayed teeth, helping them maintain their function and appearance (an inlay goes between the cusps of a tooth, while an onlay covers one or more of the cusps). These porcelain pieces are custom-made to fit in with your teeth, and their color is so close to that of natural enamel that they’re virtually invisible once they’re in place. Inlays and onlays are often used to treat cavities that are too big for a filling to correct but not so extensive that a crown is necessary.
Teeth naturally become discolored over time due to daily habits like drinking coffee and snacking on dark foods. Genetics and environmental factors can also contribute to a smile that is a little lackluster. Fortunately, our dentists offer both in-office and at-home whitening treatments that can remove even deep-set stains from your teeth. The in-office treatment takes only about one hour, whereas the at-home process requires several days to deliver the most dramatic results.
