Three of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry are bleaching, bonding, and and the application of Laminate Veneers.
The procedure is simple:
Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth.
From the impressions, the doctor makes custom “trays”.
Then you are instructed on the use of your personalized, professional whitening system.
Corrects chips, cracks, and spaces. It is often completed in one visit and in some cases does not require the use of anesthesia. The process involves preparing the surface of the tooth with an etching gel, which will allow a composite resin to adhere. A blend of various color resins are used to retain a natural appearance. After the resin is applied, the doctor hardens it with a special light. The surface of the tooth is then smoothed and polished.
Veneers correct the same problems as as bonding but they last longer. Veneers are tooth shaped shell coverings that are cemented onto the surface of the tooth.
