Porcelain veneer is a thin shell made from porcelain that is fitted over the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections, including cracks. Veneers are bonded to the tooth to improve cosmetic flaws, such as cracked, discoloured, chipped or poorly shaped teeth.
Veneers can help change the shape, size, colour and length of your teeth. It is a permanent process. Your teeth impressions will be taken and your veneers will be custom-made to suit your unique teeth impression. The shells are then bonded to your existing teeth to give you an even smile.
Your teeth can lose their brilliance over time due to the effect of minerals from food, beverages and your smoking habits on the enamel of your teeth. Aging can also lead to teeth discolouration. The process is simple and can be done over a few sittings for a lasting effect.
While some over-the-counter products are available, it is best to consult a professional who can tell you if teeth whitening is the right choice for your teeth discolouration. Whitening is recommended for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges can help fix your damaged or missing teeth. When the tooth structure is damaged, a crown is used to bring back its structure to a natural state. When one or more adjacent teeth are missing, a bridge is used to strengthen the tooth structure.
Crowns are used when you have a fractured, decayed or damaged tooth. You can also replace severely discoloured or misshapen teeth. Bridges can help when your teeth are unstable, uncomfortable or aesthetically displeasing.
Orthodontics or braces are used to correct the alignment of your teeth. Braces work by applying pressure on your teeth over time. These make all the misaligned teeth form a beautiful set of straight teeth. Braces can be applied on both children and adults.
Invisalign® is one of the most popular alternatives to metal braces for misaligned teeth. These aligners are generally made of smooth and virtually-invisible plastic. They are to be worn over your teeth and help in gently shifting your teeth to their desired positions.
Invisalign® aligners help to bring your crooked teeth into a straight smile while staying transparent. Unlike metal braces, these aligners are more comfortable and comparatively less painful than traditional braces.
