Porcelain veneers offer a beautiful solution for front teeth that are mostly healthy but cosmetically flawed. Thin porcelain coverings that are affixed directly to the teeth that show when you smile, veneers can remake the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of your grin. Even better, porcelain is a material that is highly resistant to stains and discoloration — so your smile will remain the same beautiful shade of white for years to come.
BruxZir® is a type of sturdy crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, full-arch fixed implant solution, or inlay/onlay that can restore your oral health after the occurrence of decay, injury, or the loss of teeth. Solid zirconia is used in this special type of restoration — a material that blends beautifully with the rest of your teeth. It is an attractive, sturdy alternative to metal restorations that interfere with the overall appearance of your smile.
When minor imperfections take away from the appearance of your smile in a big way, direct bonding may provide the beautiful solution you have been hoping for. Direct bonding is a non-invasive treatment in which your dentist uses tooth-colored composite resin to add to the structure of damaged or missing tooth enamel. Completed in a single visit, it is a wonderful solution for chipped, broken, uneven, discolored, or oddly shaped teeth.
Professional teeth whitening is a wonderful way to improve the appearance of your smile without having to invest considerable time or finances in the process. At-home whitening is completed over the course of one to two weeks using customized trays and a powerful bleaching gel. You will be instructed to wear the two together for approximately half an hour each evening before you go to sleep. Used correctly, an at-home treatment can easily brighten your teeth by up to 8 shades!
