Veneers

May be recommended when teeth are/have:

  • discolored due to:
    • Poor oral hygiene,
    • Excessive fluoride
    • Tetracycline stain
    • Root canal treated
    • Chipped/Broken,
    • Uneven,
    • Worn down
    • Gap

Dental veneers can be used to correct the issue. Dental veneers are tooth colored material that get bonded to teeth. First, the dentist needs to identify if the patient is a good candidate for veneers based on their occlusion and alignment. In some cases, the patient is referred to an orthodontist to evaluate the occlusion and spacing of the teeth. Second, the dentist will prepare the tooth structure by removing about .5 mm of the enamel. In some cases, the patient does not need to be anesthetized. The dentist will place temporary veneers on the patient and sends the impression of the teeth to the lab on the same appointment. The lab usually takes between 1 to 2 weeks to prepare the veneers.

The next appointment, the dentist will remove the temporary veneers and replace them with the fabricated veneers by the lab.

Some patients that grind their teeth, clench their teeth, have periodontal disease, or severe decay are not a good candidate for veneers.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure which requires using resin material to be bonded to the tooth in order to change the shape or color of the tooth and to restore your smile. Dental bondings are indicated in repairing:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • To close gaps or spaces
  • To make teeth look longer

Dental bondings are one of the least expensive cosmetic procedures. Your dentist will let you know if you are a good candidate for dental bondings or other options such as veneers, or crowns.
