Veneers are “contact lens thin” porcelain facings which are bonded onto your natural teeth. This is the most popular dental procedure today. Often used to change the color, shape, alignment or spacing of a smile, they are a very conservative choice over porcelain crowns. Veneers require the dentist to remove very little of the tooth itself. They last for decades, won’t change color or texture over time, and are actually three times stronger than non-veneered teeth. You’d be surprised how many beautiful smiles in your workplace or neighborhood were created with the help of porcelain veneers!
At Grand Dentistry Dr. Bonar and Dr. Basso fully “CUSTOMIZE” your new smile, listening to your vision that you are expecting…with input from the laboratory, even onsite, if needed. Bring any photos that you like or visual aids from magazines so the Cosmetic Lab can create natural looking, whiter, and precision fit Veneers for you.
Crowns are a natural looking, durable treatment for teeth with cracks, large cavities or root canals. If your goal is to remove all posterior silver fillings, often a crown is necessary when the filling is more than two thirds of the width of the tooth. This will guarantee being able to chew harder foods without the risk of breaking a molar. Research has proven that an average adult generates almost 2000 PSI (pounds per square inch) in a vertical direction when chewing! A porcelain fused to precious metal can withstand these forces quite well.
Used to correct discoloration of the teeth, whitening removes the brown and yellow staining. The term “teeth whitening” can refer to a number of techniques to improve the brightness of your teeth. Some of these techniques include custom fabricated trays with whitening gel done at home and one hour in-office whitening.
At Grand Dentistry, we have new and improved professional grade sticky strips also for teenagers and young adults. These are very affordable and popular as gifts and safe for anyone over age 10.
Cosmetic bonding is the process of filling or fixing the teeth with a tooth colored material to create a beautiful, natural smile. These fillings are made of a durable composite hybrid material that has a very high compressive strength, as well as polishibility. Even if you have undergone whitening, we can easily “customize” your shade. You don’t need to have black or grey back teeth any more. The amalgam, or silver can be replaced with composite.
