  • Cosmetic BondingA tooth-colored composite material is bonded to the tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened and polished. For patients with minor cosmetic flaws, cosmetic bonding is the answer. It can fix a broken or chipped tooth, close small gaps between teeth and fill in cavities. However, unlike cosmetic crowns and porcelain veneers, dental bonds can become discolored over time.
  • Cosmetic VeneersVeneers are tooth-colored shells that cover your natural teeth. Made of porcelain or composite, cosmetic veneers can easily repair discolored, slightly crooked or gapped teeth. The veneers are completed in three visits where the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel, take an impression of your teeth, send the impressions to a dental lab for fabrication and then apply the veneers in the final visit. Cosmetic veneers are durable and permanent.
  • CEREC CrownsTraditionally dental crowns took two to three visits to complete, but CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns can be applied in just one visit. The dentist will take a 3D image of your tooth for the CEREC system which can mill an all-ceramic restoration in about an hour. CEREC crowns are highly durable and permanent.
