Porcelain veneers or lumineers. Veneers unlike a crown which covers the tooth are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of a tooth. Porcelain veneers can be used to conceal imperfections such as damage, discolored or broken teeth. With veneers you can fix chipped teeth, close caps between teeth and even straighten the appearance of cracked teeth to create an attractive even smile.

Tooth Colored Fillings
Traditionally silver or amalgam filling has been the filling of choice, not anymore. Today modern materials and techniques allow the dentist to place tooth colored filling material which are bonded to the tooth, making them cosmetically much more attractive and beautiful and durable.
Bonding is used for fractured teeth. Doctor can do a bonding procedure in a single visit. A tooth colored composite resin(plastic) is used to repair chipped, decayed, fractured or discolored teeth.
Porcelain crowns or "caps" are fabricated in our laboratory requiring two appointments. They are shaped like a tooth and cover a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. The doctor and frequently the laboratory technician will select the size, shape, and color to match the appearance of your teeth.
A process for lightening teeth and removing stain. The patient must maintain their teeth after the procedure. We use zoom here in our office which allows the patient to have their teeth whitening to be done in one visit at our office. The in-office procedure is the quickest and most effective method. Over-the-counter whitening agents will not whiten your teeth as quickly as our one-stop in office process.
