Dental implants attach artificial teeth below the gum line using an anchor. The anchor holds the implant in place, allowing excess bone and gum to grow around it. The end result is a strong, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Because dental implants require surgery, they are intended only for candidates with sufficient bone and healthy gums. For more information about dental implants, please contact us today.
Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted porcelain sheaths, designed to fit snugly over the exterior of the tooth. They can effectively mask stains, hide chips and imperfections, correct misalignment, and create uniformity. Veneers are easily placed, and can make a dramatic difference in a person's overall appearance without the use of orthodontics.
Once the dentist has examined your teeth, discussed your goals and expectations, and decided that veneers are the right choice, he will prepare your teeth for bonding by trimming away a thin layer of enamel. This allows for a durable bond and a natural, flush alignment with the surrounding teeth. Next, an impression of your teeth will be taken. This impression is sent to the dental lab, which custom crafts your dental veneers. On your next visit, your new veneers will be firmly bonded in place and your beautiful new smile will be complete!
