Porcelain veneers consistent of ceramic coverings that are bonded to the teeth to mimic natural enamel, and with them, we can:
Each porcelain veneer is custom-made to a patient’s exact specifications, so whether you want to enhance a single tooth or make over your entire smile, you can trust them to deliver stunning results.
Thanks to advances in dental materials, we can now repair teeth using ceramic restorations that are virtually identical to natural enamel. These are especially useful when repairing a tooth that shows when a patient smiles. We can even shade these restorations to ensure they’re colored-matched for a patient. They are just as strong as their traditional metal counterparts, but the end result is a beautifully restored tooth that no one will even notice.
Cosmetic bonding is your quick and easy way to fix the minor stains, chips, and cracks that take away from your smile. For this treatment, Dr. Marks will apply a composite resin to your tooth, and then he’ll artfully sculpt it to hide any flaw you have. The entire treatment typically takes less than an hour and doesn’t require any local anesthesia. It’s a fantastic alternative to porcelain veneers, and the results can easily last for up to 10 years.
Inlays and onlays allow us to restore your teeth in the most conservative way possible. They serve as a middle ground between fillings and dental crowns, which is why they are sometimes called “partial-crowns.” Made of porcelain, an inlay can repair the internal part of a tooth, while an onlay does this and extends all the way to a tooth’s cusps (the rough chewing surface). With them, we’ll be able to preserve more of your tooth’s natural structure while rebuilding them.
If you’ve avoided straightening your teeth because you didn’t want to get bulky metal braces, ClearCorrect is what you’ve been looking for. It completely does away with the traditional bracket and wire system, instead using a series of clear plastic aligner trays to discreetly straighten the teeth. They are practically invisible to the naked eye, and a patient can even take them off whenever they need to eat or brush their teeth.
Eliminating stains caused by tobacco, beverages, aging, and genetics is one of the best ways to turn back the clock and make a smile truly shine, and at our practice, we have two great ways to help you do it. We have an in-office treatment with Glo Whitening that can give you dramatic results in an hour, or we can send you home with your own custom-made kit. In the end, either treatment can give you a smile that’s 6-10 shades whiter in no time.
