Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are custom-designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is specifically created to conceal the damaged or affected portions of your teeth while providing virtually undetectable and long-lasting results. Additionally, they require minimal maintenance aside from routine brushing, flossing, and regular teeth cleanings. Porcelain dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of a number of common dental issues, including: Chips and cracks, Gaps and misalignments, Stains and discolorations, Worn down and unevenly sized teeth
COSMETIC DENTAL BONDING
Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped teeth, stained teeth and gapped teeth. As one of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preserves most of the natural tooth structure. And it’s fast, too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.
COSMETIC DENTAL IMPLANTS
It’s almost impossible to feel confident when you smile if you’re missing teeth. Cosmetic dental implants can change that. With cosmetic dental implants, you get the best in function and aesthetics. Cosmetic dental implants are securely anchored in the jaw bone for maximum comfort and durability. The replacement tooth, or dental crown, is made of tooth-colored material so that your cosmetic dental implants look, feel and function just like your real teeth!
SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANTS
If you’re missing a tooth and want the very best dentistry has to offer, you could be the perfect candidate for single-tooth implants. Single-tooth implants act as tooth roots for replacement teeth. They are securely anchored into the jaw and topped with a dental crown for the very best in look, feel and function. Single-tooth implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, such as dental bridges and partial dentures. Surrounding teeth and the jawbone are better preserved. Single-tooth implants are also easier to clean. And they can also outlast bridges and dentures by about 10 years.
INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a natural tooth by up to 50 percent. As an alternative, inlays and onlays, which are bonded directly onto the tooth using special high-strength resins, can actually increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75 percent. As a result, they can last from 10 to 30 years. In some cases, where the damage to the tooth is not extensive enough to merit an entire crown, onlays can provide a very good alternative. At American Family Dentistry, we also utilizes the long-lasting composite resin used for tooth-colored fillings to help reinforce and strengthen the back teeth, as well as the adjacent teeth, if they have been damaged or affected by decay. Inlays are used to reinforce your back teeth if they have been damaged along the top indented crevices of the chewing surfaces. Onlays can be used to treat decay and damage on the cusps of the teeth (the structures projecting from the top). Using the tooth-colored resin, these restorations can be color-matched to blend in with your natural tooth structure, for a discreet solution.
