Porcelain Veneers, Onlays, Inlays

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are individually designed, thin porcelain sheets that are bonded to the front of the tooth. They can make a tooth longer or shorter, wider or narrower, as well as permanently change the color.

Do you desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile, but have one or more of the following:

veneer

  • Crooked, overlapping or misaligned teeth
  • Chipped, broken, worn teeth
  • Uneven teeth, short looking teeth
  • Unsightly old fillings
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth

Porcelain veneers are a solution for you.

Veneers are ideal for one who wants a straight, stunning smile in two to three easy and comfortable visits.

Inlays And Onlays

When decay has affected a larger portion of the tooth’s surface than a filling can adequately cover, inlays or onlays may be needed. An inlay is recommended when the decay spreads from the inside of the tooth outwards.

Material is then inlaid, or filled, into the missing portion to provide support to the structure of the tooth. When the decay largely affects the outside perimeters of a tooth, onlays are placed on top of the biting surface of the tooth and the outer surfaces as well.

Not only does porcelain enhance the aesthetics of your smile, but it also provides great strength and support. In some cases, inlays and onlays are developed with an underlying gold base to offer maximum durability. However, with the advancements in dental technology today, porcelain materials sometimes offer equal strength to that of gold.
