Veneers are a wonderful way to deliver a beautiful bright appearance to the teeth in a relatively non-invasive manner. They consist of a thin porcelain shell placed over a minimally prepared tooth. They are used to mask a tooth or teeth that are discolored, cracked, chipped, aligned improperly, or those that have an uneven contour.
Tooth whitening relative to other cosmetic procedures can be fast and cost effective. Whitening utilizes a chemical reaction to dissipate debris that has accumulated in the layers of the teeth causing discoloration. The dentist will create a custom whitening tray for you designed to be effective and comfortable. A special whitening gel is then placed in the tray and the tray is worn for a designated period of time over the course of a set amount of days or weeks. The result can be astonishing and transformative.
Custom Composite Contouring
Many of us have teeth that are misshapen or cracked. Utilizing a special dental composite material, the dentist can add to these teeth and give the proper shapes and contours. The composite material is specifically designed to mimic the natural tooth appearance for each specific patient. This can be an efficient method to obtain great esthetic results.
Full Smile Restoration
These procedures can be transformative. A full smile restoration allows for the complete esthetic renewal of a smile. This involves one or more of the other cosmetic procedures. This would begin with a thorough consultation where you and your dentist will discuss and ultimately agree on a treatment plan that will provide you with terrific results. Many patients that have undergone a full smile restoration claim that the outcome can be life changing.
