Johnson Family Dental Cosmetic Veneers
With the modern technology in today’s dentistry, white straight teeth can be accomplished in a few short visits. One way to do that is through veneers.
Veneers are a widely used cosmetic dental procedure in which our Johnson Family dentists place a covering over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only applied to teeth that will be visible when a patient is talking or smiling.
Veneers are placed on top of the tooth and is more of a cosmetic procedure for patients who want straighter or whiter teeth. A veneer is a thin ceramic or resign material that is bonded to the front of the tooth.
Whitening your teeth is probably the easiest and quickest ways to enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence. There are several teeth whitening options available that can remove or reduce the signs of brown and yellow staining. With staining that occurs over the years from smoking, to red wine and coffee, you can make your smile bright and white in just a short amount of time.
The most effective teeth whitening procedures are available through your Johnson Family Dental cosmetic dentist. Zoom whitening is offered in all our offices which is a one-time procedure that can make your smile up to six shades whiter. Take home trays with gel can also help if you want to whiten at home. You can see results within weeks. Our Johnson Family Dental dentists can explain the pros and cons of each treatment available and determine the best teeth whitening alternative for you based on the severity of your staining.
If you are unable to get the stains off your teeth and veneers are not an option for you, cosmetic bonding may be a good choice for you. It is great if you need things like:
- Gaps in teeth
- hard staining
- chipped teeth
With bonding, your dentist is able to fix and repair individual teeth without having to remove or replace your current teeth. This procedure is quick and often does not require anesthetic.
Our Johnson Family Dental Lumineers Dentists can apply these dental veneers to your teeth without any drilling or shaving, transforming your teeth into a naturally whiter smile that looks ideal for every individual. Lumineers can also be placed over existing bridges and crowns.
