For instance, patients who have crooked or misaligned teeth are at risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Cosmetic Dental Care
Porcelain veneers are crafted from ultra-thin translucent porcelain ceramic and are bonded to the front and sides of teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of crooked teeth, repair chipped and broken teeth, cover discolored or stained teeth, and close spaces or gaps between teeth. Because porcelain ceramic reflects light, tooth veneers look like natural teeth and can blend in with the rest of your smile.
Tooth bonding is an economical and quick way for patients to fix damaged and discolored teeth. This option is especially popular among younger patients who do not want a permanent restoration. Although dental bonding is not permanent, with proper dental care, bonding can last from 3 to 10 years. Patients who have slightly crooked teeth, tooth gaps, or any chips or cracks in their teeth benefit from this cosmetic treatment. Bonding allows patients to get a feel for a cosmetic restoration before choosing a permanent option.

Why Choose Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is more than just getting a white, even smile. While this is certainly a benefit, cosmetic dentistry also promotes optimal oral health. Closing gaps and helping crooked teeth also helps to even out your bite. This can help with problems like TMJ, allowing the pressure of your bite to be evenly dispersed throughout your smile. Doing this can also result in less wear and tear on your teeth and lessen the likelihood of breaking or chipping teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry also helps to give you more confidence. Instead of hiding your smile, you may be more likely to want to show it off. We want you to have a smile that you’re proud of and that you’re excited to show!
