Veneers are thin, porcelain facings that are bonded to your teeth. Veneers can conservatively change the shape and color of your teeth, creating a brighter, more youthful smile. They can also be used to repair worn or chipped front teeth. If you are considering veneers, Dr. LeVos will first spend time understanding your expectations and desired results. A mock-up of your veneers can be made on your teeth so that you can see how they will look before starting treatment. Photographs will be taken so that your veneers are designed in the most aesthetically pleasing way for your lips and face.Learn more about veneers
An affordable way to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, crooked, cracked or misshaped is with the use of dental bonding. The procedure can be done in one visit and last several years. The bonding material can be shaped and formed to your existing tooth for a stronger tooth with a natural look. The bonding material can be prone to chips and discolorations over time. So, after a few years a redo may be necessary to keep your smile bright and smooth.Let's get you scheduled
Crowns are designed to replace missing tooth structure, reinforce cracked teeth, and restore teeth to proper function. Crowns may also be used to change the color and shape of teeth. Crowns are made to fit over, or “cap” teeth. All crowns should fit properly and porcelain ones should look like natural teeth.
Crowns can be made entirely of porcelain or have a gold alloy on the inside surface. Sometimes gold crowns may be preferred on back molar teeth for better durability. Remember, not all crowns are the same. How the tooth is prepared, the type of material selected, and the laboratory expertise are critical to the success of a crown. A person’s oral hygiene habits and occlusion (biting forces) are also important to a crown’s longevity.
Getting a custom crown begins with the tooth or teeth being prepared and impressions made. At this time, the proper shade is selected, a temporary crown made, and photographs taken, if necessary, for laboratory communication. At the following appointment, the prepared tooth is carefully cleaned and the crown is cemented.Let's get you scheduled
Orthodontics is a specialty branch of dentistry that helps straighten your teeth and correct misaligned bite issues. Crooked, crowded or gapped teeth can cause many issues over time, not just an off-balanced smile. They can cause your bite to become unbalanced, which could lead to painful TMJ (temporomandibular joints) issues. Also, cleaning crowded and crooked teeth effectively can be a tricky task. Therefore you are more prone to decay and gum disease, which will result in more dental visits and money in the future. Straightening your teeth will not only give you a new brilliant smile, but help keep you and your teeth in good health.Learn more about orthodontics
