In cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are the cream of the crop. When you see makeover shows on TV, they are most likely getting porcelain veneers! It’s chosen by models and celebrities around the world to take a flawed smile and make it whiter, straighter and more ideally shaped. They may cost more than other procedures, but the results are incomparable!

Crowns are caps that go over your original tooth. They help replace and restore teeth that cannot be addressed with regular fillings. For teeth that have decayed significantly, or been too badly damaged, crowns are the best choice. There are a couple options when it comes to which crown to choose, from porcelain (tooth colored) to gold or silver.
When a tooth has decayed or suffered too much gum disease surrounding it, it most likely needs to be extracted. When a tooth is extracted, we help prevent the lips and cheek from sinking in by doing a bone graft and/or socket preservation. This is something your dentist should always discuss with you whenever a tooth must go through the extraction process.
When more than one tooth is missing and needs to be replaced, a fixed bridge can be used. It is an appliance, which is not removable, placed in the mouth in place of where the teeth were before. They are natural tooth colored so they are not very noticeable. Bridges help fill in the gap to make speaking and eating easier.
