Dental bonding and cosmetic contouring are procedures for repairing and reshaping teeth. Dental bonding involves the use of a tooth-colored resin material that is carefully applied to cracks, chips, and other problems to correct them. As the resin material dries, it bonds with the tooth, permanently fixing cracks and chips. Cosmetic contouring is a method for reshaping misshaped or oddly shaped teeth by strategically removing small amounts of enamel until the desired tooth shape is achieved.
Cosmetic fillings are tooth-colored dental fillings that blend in with your natural teeth. Whether the filling is used to fill a cavity or as part of root canal treatment, the cosmetic filling strengthens the tooth while blending in naturally. Professional tooth whitening treatments can brighten and whiten teeth by several shades in a single treatment that lasts only about an hour. Professional tooth whitening treatments applied by dental staff are safe and effective, and results can last for up to several years.
Lumineers are wafer-thin covers that give teeth a brand new look. Lumineers can be used to cover teeth that are stained, misshaped, cracked, chipped, discolored, or dull. Lumineers can even close small gaps between teeth. The process of placing Lumineers on the front surface of teeth is fairly simple. The Lumineers are permanently bonded to the teeth so they remain securely in place for years.
