Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Common cosmetic dentistry procedures include crowns, bridges, veneers, onlays, inlays and whitening. See below for more information.
Crowns & Bridges – Crowns and bridges allow for the replacement of missing teeth or to fill spaces between teeth. Crowns are individual dental restorations that are placed over a tooth or implant to restore the natural look and function of a missing or broken down tooth. A bridge can replace a missing tooth or teeth by attaching to the ‘anchor’ teeth on either side of the missing area.
Veneers – Veneers offer a quick route to a beautiful smile. They are often an ideal solution for problems such as spaces between teeth, chipped or broken teeth or to whiten teeth. Veneers are facings on teeth that are made of either porcelain or composite materials and can change the shape and alignment of your teeth. They are fabricated specifically for each patient and with proper care and maintenance they can last ten years or more.
Inlays and Onlays – Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used as an alternative treatment to dental crowns or traditional dental fillings. Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays offer a well-fitting, stronger, longer lasting solution for tooth decay or similar damage. These restorations are beneficial from both an aesthetic and functional point of view. While dental fillings are molded into place in the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are fabricated prior to being fitted and bonded to the tooth.
