Enhance your smile with porcelain veneers.
A thin shell of porcelain material (veneer) is bonded to your front surface of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are ideal choice for improving your smile. Placing porcelain veneers required time, high degree of technical skills and attention for detail. Each patient's smile is analyzed and customized to match and enhance characters already present in each patient's teeth. Veneers will look like normal teeth, highly resistance to stain and durable. With proper care, porcelain veneers can enhance your smile for well over a decade. To prolong your porcelain veneers, avoid using them as tools to open and cut things. Accidental breakage can occurs. It is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
Everyone likes to have whiter and brighter teeth. Teeth whitening (bleaching) is the easiest and most economic way to obtain whiter teeth. Keep in mind if you have existing crown, bridge, or white fillings, those shade will not change. There are several treatment options available and they are professional teeth whitening with you doctor, at home whitening system, and over-the-counter whitening products. When selecting a whitener, be sure to look for American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. It assured the product has met ADA standards of safety and effectiveness.

Tooth Bonding Or Tooth Colored Filling
To fix the imperfection of chipped, worn, discolored, or slightly crooked teeth, natural looking plastic resin material is bonded and sculpted to your front teeth. Bonding (tooth colored filling) is less expensive than other cosmetic dental treatment and usually can be completed in one visit in our office. Tooth bonding can improved your smile and appearance significantly. Keep in mind that tooth colored filling is plastic resin, not as strong as your own teeth. It will stained, chipped or break eventually. It will last 3-5 years or longer before replacement is needed.
