Silver or amalgam dental fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-colored composite restorations, while teeth whitening can improve the color of stained or dulled teeth. Tooth color and shading are important considerations during the evaluation of and preparation for various procedures, including porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding, and dental implants.
Alignment and Spacing
Teeth that are crooked, overlapping or have gaps between them can be straightened and aligned when necessary through orthodontics or Invisalign® and improved with veneers.
One or more missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile, as well as affect your bite and increase your risk for tooth decay, making replacement an integral part of oral health and facial esthetics. Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures.
Harmony and Balance
Uneven, chipped, and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded for an improved appearance, and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to help improve the overall look of your smile.
Composite Resin Veneers
Composite resin veneers work just like the other veneers to change the appearance of your teeth. Veneers quickly improve the color and the shape of your teeth. They are a very effective treatment when there are several cosmetic dental concerns such as:
- Teeth stained by food, drink, and smoking
- Teeth which are misaligned or crooked
- Teeth which have been cracked
- Teeth which have been chipped
- Fixing Diastema- gaps between existing teeth.
Porcelain Resin Veneers
Why Should I Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are stronger and more durable than composite resin veneers and last many years, while composite resin veneers last only few years. Porcelain veneers also resist stains better than composite resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
What Type of Problems Do Porcelain Veneers Correct?
- Teeth that are discolored – either because of root canal treatment, stains from particular drugs, excessive fluoride or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
- Teeth with gaps between them
