Benefit and Description: Lumineers are made of contact-lens-thin porcelain that is form-fitted to each tooth while preserving your natural tooth structure. There is no drilling, shots, or removal of tooth structure and they last twice as long as traditional methods.
Benefit and Description: Veneers are made with porcelain or a plastic resin and are a thin, translucent coating applied to those teeth that are visible when you smile. They are as strong as your own teeth and are resistant to discoloration and chipping.
Treatment: This procedure may require two or three visits. First, Dr. Jones will help you choose the right veneer shade for you. Your teeth are then prepared and an impression is taken. Temporary veneers will be applied.
Bonding uses a synthetic tooth-colored resin which adheres to your tooth for restorative or cosmetic purposes. It can be used to fill gaps between teeth, create a new surface for a discolored or damaged tooth, or build up an eroded tooth to restore function.
Fillings replace an area of the tooth removed due to decay. Silver amalgam and composite resin are the two most common materials used depending on each patient's individual needs.
Benefit and Description: Restoration is needed after tooth decay (cavity) is removed. The decay is removed and replaced with a resin or amalgam substance to restore the function and look of your tooth.
