Do you have discolored or uneven teeth, spaces between teeth, or teeth stained by fillings? You can change the shape, color, and length of your teeth using veneers.
Veneers are thin natural looking facings designed to cover the front of the tooth. They are typically made of an extremely durable ceramic that is stain resistant, customized to your desires, and easy to maintain.
Veneers are custom-fitted to your teeth. Removing a minimal amount of enamel is always the goal, and often veneers can be done with no preparation into the tooth at all. Once completed, the veneers are bonded to your teeth using a safe, high-tech polymer resin. You can expect veneers to stay bright and strong for many years by performing good oral hygiene.
If you have teeth that have stains that cannot be removed by bleaching, and veneers or crowns are not necessary, then cosmetic bonding might be a good option for you. Cosmetic bonding is an affordable, quick and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries, including:
- Gaps in teeth
- Spots or stains
- Chipped teeth
Teenagers with cosmetic flaws in their teeth are excellent candidates for cosmetic bonding. Bonding is more economical than porcelain veneers, but gives the same improvement in the appearance of the teeth.
Teeth are often restored using fillings. However, when too much of a tooth’s structure is removed to support a filling, a crown or “cap” may be needed. A crown may be needed to:
- Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling
- Attach bridges
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth
- Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
- Cover dental implants
Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
If necessary, a crown can be supported by an artificial root called an implant. Using our 3D imaging technology, we will plan the crown and the implant to achieve a very cosmetic result where a tooth is missing.
Healthy and strong teeth support and maintain your jaw alignment. That is why when you lose one or more teeth, your remaining teeth may shift, and the ability to chew and speak may be affected.
Traditionally bridges have been long regarded as the “gold standard” in cosmetic replacement of missing teeth. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial ones connected to crowns on each side of it. This eliminates the gap caused by a lost tooth.
Regardless of the type of bridge recommended, its success depends on keeping the surrounding teeth healthy and strong. Dr. Kristoff recommends bridges in patients with excellent oral hygiene, who are not good surgical candidates for implant placement.
Dentures & Partials
One of the most important cosmetic restorations offered today, a well made denture also benefits your health by improving your ability to eat a well rounded diet! Full dentures can now be supported by implants for a positive fit that won’t dislodge while talking or eating. Removable partial-dentures can be customized with invisible clasps and hidden attachments to your natural teeth. A cosmetically constructed partial is also an economical alternative to bridges and implant supported crowns. In fact, we plan every type of case for both excellent function and a beautiful appearance in mind.
