Professional tooth whitening is the most commonly performed cosmetic dentistry procedure in the country, and for very good reasons: it is much more effective, safer, more comfortable, and less aggravating than whitening with a store-bought kit. It will allow your teeth to get naturally whiter without having any effect on your enamel. Contrary to popular belief, whitening is extremely safe and does not work by weakening or stripping away enamel.
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of tooth-colored porcelain materials that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth. they’re used on the front teeth – the ones that are visible when smiling – (the critical cosmetic zone) to correct issues like cracks, chips, uneven edges, stains, discolorations, gaps between teeth, teeth that appear “too small” in relation to other teeth (sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile”), rotated and malposed teeth.
Dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth. Unlike veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require a customized mold to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single visit. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth. Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Dental Inlay & Onlay:
Dental Inlays and Onlays can be thought of as porcelain/ceramic fillings. These are different than white/composite fillings in that the ceramic material used to restore your tooth is much stronger than white filling material and sometimes necessary for longevity. You can imagine these to be porcelain little puzzle pieces that fit into (or replace) the missing or decayed part of your tooth. These two dental procedures are very similar. They restore decayed or worn out teeth. They made out of the same material, porcelain or ceramic. They have the same durability. The difference between the two is how they fit into the tooth and the amount of tooth structure they may replace. They both are cemented inside the tooth. Onlay, unlike inlay, covers one or several cusps (the raised part of the tooth) and extends to the occlusal surface. Dental onlay vs. crown both onlays and crowns are used to treat extensive areas of decay, but crowns are designed to surround the entire tooth while onlays covers only the compromised portion. in the past, there were only two ways to restore decay either a metal filling or a crown. now with advancements in cosmetic dentistry, ceramic onlays can restore the teeth that in the past would have required crowns. By placing onlays instead of crowns dentists are now able to save the tooth without removing so much of the tooth structure. Crowns are still recommended to strengthen teeth after a root canal therapy and to restore broken teeth.
