Bonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or alter the color of teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored restorations for small cavities. Additionally, it can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.
Crowns, also known as caps, cover a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and appearance. Crowns are now available in highly aesthetic all ceramic materials requiring minimal tooth preparation. All ceramic materials such as IPS Emax have eliminated the need for the traditional metal under porcelain crowns. This helps to eliminate any show through of greyness at the gum line while remaining very life-like and natural looking.
Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the front teeth to change the color and/or shape of your teeth. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Little or no anesthesia is needed. Veneers are used to treat some of the same problems as bonding.
This treatment is an alternative to crowns. The procedure requires our dentists to take an impression of your tooth. Before the custom-made veneer is bonded directly onto the tooth, your dentist will lightly adjust the tooth to compensate for the added thickness of the veneer. Porcelain veneers require more than one visit because they are fabricated in a laboratory. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding.
Tooth reshaping and contouring, is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped or irregularly shaped teeth or even overlapping teeth in a single session. Tooth reshaping and contouring, is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth. Contouring teeth may also help correct small problems with bite. It is common for bonding to be combined with tooth reshaping.
