When it comes to altering the appearance of teeth, few treatments are as comprehensive and effective as porcelain veneers. These ceramic shells, which are designed to cover the front of teeth, hide noticeable flaws like chips, gaps, minor misalignment, cosmetic cracks, and stubborn discoloration. Porcelain veneers are custom crafted to look as realistic as possible. In as few as two appointments, your imperfect smile can transform into your dream smile.
Although traditional porcelain veneers can easily give you the results you’ve always wanted, the process does involve removing a small portion of the enamel to make room. However, Lumineers are even thinner and allow you to enjoy all the benefits of porcelain veneers without making permanent changes to your teeth. During your consultation with Dr. Gandhi, ask her if you’re a good candidate for Lumineers instead. This treatment can change your smile in the same timeline and allow you to keep your healthy enamel for as long as possible.
If you’ve had an amalgam filling or a metal crown before, you know that these are anything but subtle. In fact, these silvery restorations can attract more attention than the original problem! That’s why we offer restorations that contain no metal at all. Through composite resin filling and porcelain crowns, we are able to give you a seamless smile that shows no signs of trouble in the past. That way, you can smile with confidence again.
If you’re looking for a less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers and Lumineers, consider direct bonding. With this treatment, you can resolve all of the same imperfections—chips, discolorations, gaps, misshapen or small teeth—by simply adding composite resin, the same material used for fillings. Composite resin can easily be shaded to the desired color and can easily last for 10 years before needing replacement. Plus, direct bonding can usually be completed in just one appointment.
Although your tooth enamel is the hardest material in your body, it is also porous and can absorb stains from food and drinks. Certain medications, your genes, and other factors can cause your smile to look more faded or yellow than it used to. Commercial products claim to offer noticeable results, but they rarely work as well as they promise. The good news is that we offer professional-grade whitening that can give you a dramatically whiter smile.
Occasionally, the aesthetic problem with a smile is due just as much to the gums as the teeth themselves. For example, in spots, the teeth can appear small because there is too much gum tissue. This leads to a “gummy” smile. We can provide better visual balance by recontouring the gum line and letting more of the crowns show, making the teeth appear longer.
In many cases, it can be difficult for the patient to imagine what they will look like after treatment is complete. Using advanced software and technology, we can take a photo of you and manipulate the image to show you exactly what you’ll look like after your procedure. That way, you can make a more confident and informed decision and then move forward knowing that you’ll love the results before we even get started.
