Bonding is a great way to quickly fix a tooth
with a chip or stain on it. This procedure can be done in about
an hour and most often without the need for anesthesia. Many
insurance plans pay for this procedure at 80%!
- had some areas of decalcification
(these spots are early cavities which develop at a slow rate and
are usually stained or are very white). She wanted us to fix the
front 2 teeth and her lower laterals. She was very pleased to
have this procedure done so quickly. "Why did I wait so
long with my teeth like they were?"
- chipped her front teeth and had an
old bonding which stained on the right lateral. She was so
thrilled with the results she wrote an independent websearch
engine that we "fixed her tooth so nicely she almost cried".
Veneers can improve your smile in ways you
may not have imagined. Sometimes called instant orthodontics.
This procedure can whiten, straighten, fix chipped or discolored
teeth and close gaps in as few are 2 appointments.
- had crowding on her upper front teeth
and years ago had bondings placed. However these large bondings
chipped and stained easily. We covered her front 4 teeth. She
has been so pleased with her results and is always seen smiling!
(You may recognize her smile on another part of the website with
the children - she is their grandmother and our nanny!)
- had orthodontics (braces) and was
diligent about home care and wearing her retainers. However,
since she had recession her teeth wouldn’t whiten like she
wanted them to. She also had a cant on the front teeth that
although they were straight, the neck and the tip of the tooth
were not in a straight line. She was an excellent patient
traveling from 3 hours away to see us and have her teeth custom
shaded by the lab to get exactly what she wanted. She was always
beautiful but now she feels fabulous too!
- had smaller front teeth. She had
Invisalign to close the front teeth gap and we only placed
veneers on her laterals. She is so pleased with the results and
can’t believe they are her teeth.
Crown and Bridge
If you are missing a tooth, have a large
cavity or have a large crack or broken tooth, then crown or
bridge work may be what you are looking for.
- had old bonding and bridges which
needed to be replaced. She was sure what she wanted and showed
us photos of how she looked as a young adult. "I don’t want tiny
teeth - that’s not how my teeth were." She was very pleased with
- had a number of areas giving him trouble
for years. When he was finally ready he was a wonderful patient
for us. He was so happy to have repaired and restored his upper
teeth after all these years.
- we used all-porcelain crowns to repair
her broken front teeth. She was very happy to not see the black
margins at the gumline that some patients associate with
