Porcelain veneers can give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

The dentist will determine if minimal or no-prep veneers are right for you. If you are a candidate, your smile makeover can be completed in just as few as two appointments.
Crowns are used for different reasons: Decayed or damaged teeth, cracked or broken teeth with large cavities or worn fillings, a poor fitting crown, a cosmetic tooth problem, a bite problem, a tooth that has a large opening on it’s top surface after Root Canal Therapy.
Crowns also come in different types:
Metal Crown – this crown is made of gold or other metals. It is very strong and made to not break. Because this type isn’t tooth colored it may not be the best choice for a front tooth.
Tooth-colored Crown – this crown is made of porcelain or reinforced resin. It comes in a range of shades in order to match your tooth color.
Combination Crown – this crown is porcelain fused on top of metal, making the crown appear as if it were tooth-colored. The metal base of this crown makes it stronger.
Tooth bleaching lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration (caused from tea, coffee, etc.). Bleaching is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
