Making Teeth Whiter
Whitening can be done with bleaching, porcelain veneers, crown and bridge or tooth colored restorations.
There are several different bleaching techniques that can safely and significantly whiten teeth to a long term healthy condition. We have ZOOM whitening!
Porcelain Veneers are the ultimate in whitening when bleaching is not appropriate. Veneers are ultra thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth. They do not require significant tooth preparation, thus providing the beauty and durability of crowns but with a very conservative treatment. Most movie stars and models have their teeth bonded with porcelain veneers in stead of porcelain crowns or "caps" as they had to do several years ago.
Porcelain Veneers can correct color on one or two isolated teeth as below.
Tooth Colored Restorations
Teeth that have turned dark from silver-mercury fillings can be restored with tooth colored restorations such as inlays or crowns.
