Our Patients Don't Need It!
There are a number of ways that we can help you love your smile. In addition to at-home whitening, we can provide veneers or crowns that will help your teeth look naturally beautiful.
Veneers are a great option for improving your smile. They are shells of porcelain that fit over your teeth to improve their shape and color. Because there is only a thin shell of material, only a small amount of your tooth needs to be taken away to make room.
Crowns are another esthetic option for helping your smile look its best. They can also be used as part of a bridge for areas where implants are not an option.
Crowns and brides offer a full-coverage option for improving your smile.
Whether veneers or crowns are your choice, we will start the process by sending models for your teeth to a lab. The lab will create a wax-up of the way your new teeth will look, which we will use to make temporaries.
After we have prepared your teeth for the restorations, we'll put on the temporaries to give you an idea of what your teeth will look like and to give you time to get used to them while the lab fabricates your final veneers or crowns.
Once we get them back from the lab, you'll be ready to get your new smile!
The Wax Up
However, because the porcelain is so thin, it is sometimes prone to fracturing.
If you are looking for a faster, less expensive way to change the appearance of your teeth, we do offer composite veneers. They are generally not as esthetic as veneers or crowns, but they can be done in our office and are able to be easily repaired if necessary.
