Minimal Prep Veneers
Minimal prep veneers require very little or no preparation of the teeth. Dentists sometimes refer to them as no-prep veneers. They are super thin shells that will cover the entire front and sides of a tooth to change the appearance of that tooth. Patients choose this because they want to enhance the appearance of their teeth without undergoing major dental work. Your dentist can place them in one or two dental appointments.
Similar to minimal prep veneers, porcelain veneers involves a dentist bonding thin shells over the front and sides of teeth. They are made of porcelain making them very durable and able to resist many stains. They are an excellent option for patients with chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, as well as those with gaps or misaligned teeth. The procedure for placing porcelain veneers typically involves two or three appointments and requires some preparation of the tooth surface.
A popular alternative to metal braces is Invisalign. This tooth straightening treatment uses aligners to slowly move your teeth into proper alignment. The aligners are clear and hardly noticeable when worn. Unlike braces, you can take them out to eat and take care of your teeth. Traditional braces are known for being uncomfortable and inconvenient. However, Invisalign can accomplish the same thing with greater comfort. Depending on how bad your teeth are, your treatment can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
An affordable way to fix your tooth is with tooth bonding. This procedure uses a resin material that your dentist can make the same shade as your surrounding teeth. The resin material is bonded to the tooth surface using a special adhesive and then sculpted to the desired shape and size. Tooth bonding is an excellent option for patients with chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, as well as those with gaps or discoloration. This simple treatment only takes one appointment to complete.
One of our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments is teeth whitening. This is because it is simple, easy and affordable.
