The application of tooth-colored filling material (composite) to the teeth has been practiced for many years. Recent advances have increased the strength, durability, and longevity of these restorations. Outstanding effects can be achieved through bonding, including tooth lightening, closing spaces between teeth, making teeth appear straighter, repairing chips and cracks and more. The bonding material can be molded and shaped to create the results you desire, and then polished to give the appearance of natural tooth structure.
Of all the methods for improving the look of your smile, laminate veneers are among the most popular and successful. The process involves removing a small amount of tooth structure to make room for veneers. The dental lab then custom fabricates the veneers from impressions of your teeth. After placement, the veneers look like your natural teeth, only better. Advantages of porcelain veneers over bonding include increased longevity and resistance to staining.
Laminate veneers are porcelain covers that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth, to improve position, shape and tooth color. They make a dramatic, immediate difference to your smile and appearance. We pride ourselves in providing the most natural-looking restorations possible, so we will discuss advantages and disadvantages of any significant change to your smile before we begin.
