Over the years, your smile may not be as bright and white as it once was. Teeth tend to become discolor as we age. And of course we expose our teeth to a variety of staining agents including, coffee, tea, wine red wine and tobacco. Even certain medications are known to discolor our teeth. Don’t let your smile send the wrong message. Dr. Emma and her staff can talk with you about professional whitening treatments, solid advice, professional care and the attention you deserve. Give yourself a well-deserved boost of confidence with a radiant smile.
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. A composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match your surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Sometimes bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed because of gum recession. Bonded teeth do not require special care. Simply follow good oral hygiene practices and see Dr. Emma for regular check-ups and cleanings.
Bonding can frequently be done in a single visit to Cranberry Dentistry. Ask Dr. Emma if bonding is right for you.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that have been customized by shape and color to create a more beautiful and confident smile.
Reasons to consider veneer:
- Crooked teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are either too large or too small
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth
Veneers are bonded onto the front teeth providing a long lasting and durable solution for teeth that are whiter and more uniform in appearance. As with most dental restoration, veneers are not permanent and may someday need to be replaced. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, they will last for many years, giving you a beautiful, confident smile.
