Many of us have healthy teeth and gums but are dissatisfied with the appearance of our smile. Our dental team can recommend veneers to cover teeth that are chipped, worn down or slightly crooked.
Veneering is accomplished by affixing thin, custom-made porcelain shells fixed firmly onto existing teeth, in a simple, comfortable procedure. Typically veneering requires only two appointments. The procedure is simple and pain-free and the results are completely beautiful.
In most cases, crowns are required to support a tooth when a large filling simply does not leave enough natural tooth to prevent fracturing. Other situations such as restoration of damaged or badly shaped/discolored teeth and covering a dental implant are best suited by crowning. The doctor will provide consultation on what the best materials are for your situation.
A dental bridge is a solution for replacing missing teeth that uses the existing, surrounding teeth as anchors to hold the replacement crown in place. Dental bridges can replace a single missing tooth or several teeth. In some instances we may recommend fixing a crown to the anchoring teeth to create a stronger foundation.
