Cosmetic By Dentist
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are ultra-thin, personalized coverings that are placed over the outer lining area of the tooth. They enhance the overall look of the tooth by changing their form, color, length or size. They are created to look like real teeth by using components that have the same color and structure as your natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Veneers:
- Strong and long-lasting
- Natural-looking surface
- Less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown or cap
- Don't stain easily
How does teeth whitening work?
The active ingredient in most teeth whiteners is some form of peroxide. Oxygen molecules from the peroxide penetrate the tooth and break down discolored molecules.
Because the oxygen molecules spread throughout the entire tooth, it is not necessary for the whitening gel to touch every part of the tooth for the entire tooth to be whitened.
What is Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a process where the dentist attaches or “bonds” materials directly to your tooth in order to change the color and shape. The natural tooth enamel is then fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that still feels like your original tooth.
