How can I improve my smile by changing the shape of my teeth?
At Orland Oaks Dental, we offer several methods for changing the shape and appearance of your teeth. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all great options. The one we choose depends on your needs and desires.
Bonding is the most conservative and cost-effective method for changing the appearance of a tooth. The advantage of bonding is that we don’t have to make any changes to an existing tooth.
With bonding, we simply build up the tooth to the desired shape using a natural-looking tooth-colored material. This allows us to correct many imperfections and give the tooth a whole new look. Bonding is such a straightforward process that we can usually alter several teeth in just one appointment.
Porcelain veneers are another excellent option if there’s something about your smile you’d like to change. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your tooth to conceal imperfections and change its shape. With veneers, we have the option of treating just one tooth or several teeth.
Both bonding and veneers can alter the tooth shape, as well as correct other esthetic concerns. Using either procedure, we can fix chips, cracks, and broken teeth, and fill uneven spaces between teeth. Each option has its advantages and disadvantages, and our doctors are here to help you decide which will work best for you.
