Composite bonding can improve the appearance of chipped, broken, cracked or stained teeth and spaces between teeth. Our dentist applies a thin layer of tooth-colored composite resin to restore chips and cracks, fill in gaps or cover stains and provide patients with a more attractive and functional smile. First, a thin layer of plastic material is applied to the tooth’s surface. Then the dentist sculpts the bonding material to the desired shape and bonds it to the tooth using a special light. The bonding material comes in many colors, so it will be possible to match it to the shade of your teeth. Once the plastic has hardened, it is polished until it is entirely smooth. The procedure takes one to two hours and the bonding lasts about 7-11 years. Porcelain veneers are a fantastic way to repair or enhance the appearance of front teeth. They can be used to whiten teeth, close spaces, and create a great smile. Using veneers, we can even perform virtually ‘Instant Orthodontics’ to straighten crooked teeth and give you the bright, beautiful smile that you always wanted.Veneers are very thin porcelain restorations that are bonded to the front of your anterior teeth. They are very strong and have a ‘life-like’ appearance. Veneers have many advantages over traditional Porcelain Fused-to-Metal crowns. No ‘Dark Line’ that can often be seen at the gum line. They transmit light better, creating a more translucent ‘natural appearance’. They require either a minimal reduction of tooth structure or sometimes almost none at all.
