In many cases, a porcelain veneer will be the first solution a dentist thinks of when their patient has more than one cosmetic flaw they’d like to correct. Veneers are attached directly to the front of your teeth, changing their color, shape, size, or length. Doing this hides stains, cracks, chips, misshapen teeth, and gaps all at the same time. Most people won’t even realize that the veneers aren’t a natural part of your teeth thanks to the custom-shaded porcelain they’re made of.
Getting a crown is often a necessary step for protecting a weakened tooth that’s in danger of fracturing or becoming infected. However, that does not mean you can’t still consider the effects the restoration will have on your appearance. Instead of a metal crown, we can give you one made out of a ceramic material that can be shaded to match your other teeth. As an aesthetic bonus, ceramic crowns tend to be more stain-resistant than natural enamel.
For smaller corrections that can be dealt with quickly, you should definitely consider cosmetic bonding. This is often a cost-effective alternative to veneers when there are only a few changes you want to make. The cosmetic bonding process is very simple compared to other treatments and can be done in less than an hour; we simply apply composite resin directly to the tooth and mold it until it blends in with the tooth’s natural enamel.
Whitening strips and toothpaste normally only remove the stains on the surface of your teeth, also known as extrinsic stains. They can’t do anything about the intrinsic stains beneath the enamel. That is where KoR whitening comes in. The gels used for this type of whitening are filled with powerful ingredients that penetrate the enamel to break up the stain molecules wherever they’re located. KoR whitening kits are all customized so that you can use them comfortably at home on your own schedule.
The last thing you want is to pay for a cosmetic procedure only to be disappointed by the results. To make sure your expectations are realistic, we’re pleased to offer virtual smile design. Simply put, by taking a picture of your teeth and digitally altering it, we can give you a “preview” of what your smile will look like after we have placed a veneer, completed cosmetic bonding, or performed a whitening procedure. Feel free to take the pictures home with you and see what your family thinks!
