Bonding is the application of tooth-colored plastic resin to repair a discolored, cracked, chipped or decayed tooth. It can also close gaps between teeth, make teeth look longer, or change the general shape or color of teeth. It is among the most affordable of cosmetic procedures and can usually be performed in one day–no anesthetic needed!
Dental crowns serve as both aesthetic and functional solutions to badly decayed teeth, broken teeth, or teeth with defective fillings. With advances in modern technology, we are now able to create and place crowns in a single appointment.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. You don’t have to live with a gap-toothed smile, or unsightly false teeth that don’t stay in place. A dental implant is a tooth-root replacement that serves not only as an anchor for a replacement tooth, bridge, partial, or dentures, but helps preserve the integrity and health of surrounding teeth and jawbone.
Gum contouring is a surgical procedure that can improve the overall health and appearance of your smile. It may alleviate gum recession before it leads to further bone loss or correct gums that appear out of proportion due to a number of different factors. Reshaping the gums can streamline your teeth, gums and jaw from the inside, making your smile appear more symmetrical.
If you think veneers are just for the red carpet, think again. Veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are bonded to the tooth surface, and can correct any number of cosmetic issues. Veneers are a great solution for teeth that are yellow, slightly crooked, irregularly shaped, gapped, broken, chipped, or eroded. They’re also resistant to stains from coffee, tea, and tobacco!
