Veneers & Bonding

v-smile2.jpgVeneers are thin, semi-translucent "shells" typically attached to your front teeth, usually with the use of little or no local anesthetic. They are customized from porcelain material and permanently bonded to your teeth.

Veneers are commonly used to correct:

  • Spaces between the teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth

Veneers are a great aesthetic solution for your smile and may even help you avoid orthodontic treatment. Subtle changes to your smile, such as resurfacing the teeth to make them appear straighter, can be achieved with veneers.

In most cases, veneer application is completed in only two office visits.

If you would like to fix chipped or cracked teeth, reduce unsightly gaps or spaces between your teeth or hide discoloration on your teeth's surface, then cosmetic resin bonding may be for you. Cosmetic resin bonding is often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. As the name indicates, composite resin is bonded to an existing tooth. Unlike veneers or crowns, cosmetic resin bonding removes little, if any, of the original tooth.

Cosmetic bonding has many advantages, including:

  • Composite resins come in many different shades to match the natural color of your teeth.
  • It is a quick process, which typically lasts less than one hour.
  • It does not reduce the tooth's original structure.
