Dental Implants are very similar to your natural teeth. While initially more expensive, they offer a long lasting, cost effective solution to having a beautiful, functional smile & retaining the shape of your face. Traditional bridges do not offer a long term solution like implants, and although they may dental implants require adjustment, they are built to last a lifetime.

Veneers & Lumineers
When teeth are discolored, cracked or chipped, dental veneers (or “Lumineers,” a specific type of dental veneers) offer a fast resolution. Even teeth that are unevenly sized or spaced can be corrected. Veneers are porcelain shells that are adhered to the front of your teeth. The tooth itself must be healthy for this procedure to be successful.
Dental veneers are created specifically for your smile. With veneers, a thin layer of the front of the teeth is removed to make room for the new veneer. With Lumineers, the only treatment of the tooth itself is a mild etching to enable Lumineers to securely adhere to the front of the tooth. Both products have an excellent record of durability as well as lasting beauty.

Dental bonding is a very fast and simple way to repair damage to small areas of your teeth. Chips, minor irregularities of shape or spacing and other minor flaws can be corrected. Bonding fills in missing parts of your tooth or hides defects using tooth-colored composite resins (soft materials that are hardened to match the look and feel of your teeth).
In dental bonding, the tooth will first be etched slightly so the resin will attach very firmly to it. Then the exact composite resin that matches your teeth will be added in layers until there is enough material to fix whatever flaw was being corrected. Dental drills are then used to give the new bonded material the perfect shape to match your other teeth. Finally, a little polishing finishes off the process.
