What is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is designed to restore one or more missing teeth by preparing the adjacent teeth for crowns and using them to support a single ceramic unit that appears to be multiple teeth. It requires the same procedures as for a crown including removal of the outer layer of the tooth and all decay, taking an impression to create a model, having a temporary bridge during the laboratory turnaround time, and cementing the final bridge in place.
What are Dental Crowns?
A crown is a cover or cap that is placed over a tooth or a dental post or abutment (top section of a dental implant). Crowns are typically made of a high strength porcelain.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a relatively quick and simple solution to correcting many esthetic problems including chipped, worn, crooked, misshapen, discolored and spaced teeth. A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin that is bonded to the front of the tooth after little or no removal of the existing tooth.
There are two types of materials for veneers such as composite and porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed in the mouth by one of our doctors at the time of your visit, typically using resin cement. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing natural look for tooth enamel.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Tooth discoloration is a common esthetic problem that can be caused by many things. There are two types of professional whitening options available: at-home and in-office. At home whitening systems utilize a custom tray created by the dentist that keeps the whitening agent on the teeth.
