Porcelain Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth to correct imperfections in your smile. Dental veneers are a great choice for enhancing your smile, as they commonly consist of porcelain, which has a color and translucence that closely matches natural teeth.
Dental veneers are designed to correct imperfections in your smile such as:
- Large spaces and gaps between your teeth
- Discolored, stained or yellowed teeth
- Misshapen, too long or too short teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Chipped, fractured, worn or broken teeth
Our dentists and team may recommend dental veneers if you are interested in enhancing the beauty of your smile. Veneers are custom made just for you for a natural fit that fits the contours of your smile. They can be used as a restoration for one tooth or for your full smile. With veneers, you can achieve that bright, white Hollywood smile you have been dreaming of having! We want you to love your smile and love showing it off!
If you have any questions about dental veneers and how they can improve the appearance of your smile, we encourage you to call or visit our office today to schedule an appointment with our dentists!
Crown lengthening is a gum treatment that has both functional and aesthetic purposes. We may recommend crown lengthening if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky or look like it comes down over the teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentists may suggest crown lengthening. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. This usually requires just one visit to our office.
We may also recommend crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental treatment possible. If the tooth is broken below or very close to the gumline or if insufficient tooth structure is left for a restoration, our dentists may use crown lengthening to expose more of the tooth so a restoration like a crown or bridge can be placed.
