As the name implies, internal bleaching corrects tooth discoloration from the inside out. Internal staining of dentine can discolor the teeth from the inside out. Causes include illness during tooth formation, excess fluoride, incorrect root canal treatment, or the use of certain antibiotics. The result of this cosmetic dentistry is a healthy-looking, naturally white smile from the inside out.
Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth. Whether you have a single tooth that is discolored or small, a gap between two teeth, a damaged tooth, or want to remake your entire smile, porcelain veneers can help.
In the porcelain veneer process, a thin shell of advanced ceramic material is applied to the front and/or top of your teeth, replacing the visible surface of your tooth. The new material is stain resistant, has the luster of natural tooth enamel, is highly durable, and is permanently bonded to the front of your tooth. Porcelain veneers can be expected to last 10 years or more with proper care.
Bonding is an ideal treatment for smaller corrections such as minor decay, chips, cracks, color improvement, or filling gaps between teeth.
This cosmetic dentistry approach provides a far more aesthetically pleasing alternative to metal fillings of the past, composite resins look and feel like natural tooth material.

Crown Lengthening for Functional and Cosmetic Dentistry

This may be due to naturally small teeth, trauma to the tooth, decay, or poor dental restoration. Our crown lengthening procedure means you can get a reconstruction of the tooth in question despite its shortness.
