Composite fillings, instead of silver fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or more visible areas of the mouth. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
Dental veneers & Laminates are very thin shells of porcelain or resin material that are bonded over the front of your natural teeth to change the way that they look. From crowding to uneven teeth, veneers can be used for a variety of aesthetic situations, and results are amazing.
Veneers are applied directly to the tooth to create straighter, whiter teeth. They can also be used to close spaces, or repair chipped and damaged teeth. When placed side by side, dental veneers have the potential to change the overall appearance of your entire smile.
