Of all the methods available today for changing and improving the look of your smile, veneers are among the most popular and successful with our patients. The process involves removing a small amount of tooth structure to make room for the veneers. The dental lab then fabricates the veneers from impressions. After placement, the veneers look like natural teeth. Some advantages of porcelain veneers over bonding include increased longevity, and resistance to staining.
Modern dental technology can reshape uneven teeth and veneer them with high-tech ceramic. The result will give the appearance and function of a symmetrical smile. The effectiveness of this approach can depend on how crooked and crowned the teeth are to begin with. What we can do is absolutely amazing. For many adults this option is better than traditional orthodontics, and treatments can be complete in as little as two visits.
Smile Design is a conservatice, non-aggressive way to rejuvenate your smile. Veneers work well for tooth reshaping and resizing. Veneers are an attractive way to rejuvenate your smile because they achieve a very natural look with a very conservative tooth preparation (shaping). Very little natural tooth structure is removed when veneers are bonded into place and the virgin strength of the tooth is recaptured as well. We have found that this is the treatment of choice for smile enhancement if more than whitening is needed.
The best use for bonding is to repair slightly chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth. Bonding involves placing tooth colored composite material onto the tooth. The advantages of bonding is that it is inexpensive and an ultra conservative way to restore a tooth. Bonding will discolor and is easier to break, however.
By intercepting the potential of fracture before experiencing symptoms of hot/cold sensitivity and biting pain, new conservative treatments like tooth colored filling or porcelain bonded restorations are preventing the side effects of toothaches and broken teeth. Using a proactive rather than reactive approach to amalgam replacement is a choice many patients are happy to have.
Many restorations are fabricated using a metal lining covered with porcelain. These types of crowns are used because they are cheap and easy to place in the mouth. They are opaque or flat looking because they do not let light pass through as a natural tooth does. There is often a dark or gray line next to the gum-line. We provide exclusively all porcelain-bonded restorations. When properly placed they are as strong, if not stronger then the porcelain covered metal crowns. Notice the appearance of natural tooth again.
A Bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replace one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic (replacement) tooth in place. Crowns and bridges are most commonly prepared from high quality materials such as semiprecious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. Aesthetics, function, and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.
Full Mouth Restoration
Full Mouth restoration involves restoring the teeth, bite, muscles and self-esteem back to a natural looking and youthful feeling condition.
Using computerized technology and an artistic eye, full mouth restoration may be the answer to many problems, such as heat-sensitive teeth, sore jaw muscles, and recurring headaches.
It is the art and science of using the relaxed position of the muscles of the head and neck to place the jaw into a optimal physiologic position. Thirty years of research and clinical experience have shown the technique effective in treating patients with various levels of head and neck pain. It also used in finding the optimal jaw position before restorative dentistry and greatly increases the longevity of restorations and natural dentitions.
Tooth whitening or bleaching is one of the most popular areas of cosmetic dentistry. Even subtle changes in shading can make someone look years younger. Several factors can contribute to the darkening of teeth, including the effects of age, certain foods and drinks, smoking, and medications.
