Porcelain veneers involve placing extremely thin ceramic restorations over the front of the teeth that can improve their shape, size, and color to create a more balanced and attractive smile. They’re able to fix/mask a wide array of imperfections with one simple procedure, and once in place, patients can look forward to them lasting for about 20 years. Veneers are always custom-made based on a patient’s preferences, and you can get just one or an entire set in as little as two appointments.
Metal-free restorations offer patients in need of tooth repair the best of both worlds. Made of 100% white dental porcelain, this material is not only extremely strong and durable, but natural-looking as well. It’s able to replicate the appearance of enamel down to the finest detail, including how its slight translucency reflects light. Our prosthodontists are experts at creating restorations that blend seamlessly into the smile, so with one of these crowns, only you and your dentist will know which tooth isn’t your own!
For minor chips, thin gaps, or stains that don’t respond to bleaching, cosmetic bonding offers a quick and easy solution. A color-matched composite resin is applied directly to the tooth in question, and then the dentist artfully sculpts it to enhance the enamel’s shape, size, and color. In just an hour or less, it will look like nothing was wrong with the tooth in the first place! Not only is this treatment fast, but the results can be trusted to last for about a decade as well.
SAAV Prosthodontics uses Glo Teeth Whitening, and with it, we can make your smile six to eight shades brighter in our dental office or even in the comfort of your own home. Our on-site treatment only needs an hour to break up the most set-in stains, or we can give you a custom-made kit that is much stronger than anything you’ll find at the store or online. Whether your teeth have discolorations due to coffee, wine, tobacco, or age, Glo will help you quickly and beautifully turn back the clock.
If you’re interested in getting a cosmetic treatment, we can give you a preview of the results using digital imaging. We’ll take a picture of your current smile, and we’ll digitally edit it to reflect how teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or any other procedure you’re interested in will enhance your appearance. Once you like what you see in the mocked-up image, our team can get to work turning it into a beautiful reality.
