Porcelain veneers can cover up any number of cosmetic flaws. They are thin coverings made of dental porcelain, which is a high-quality material that looks and functions just like your natural tooth enamel. From chips and cracks to stains, slight misalignments, and virtually any other cosmetic issue, porcelain veneers allow us to reveal your brightest, most attractive smile. The treatment is completed over two visits at Fox Creek Family Dental, and with proper care and maintenance, veneers can thrive for many years.
Metal Free Restorations
When decay or damage affect a tooth in the front of your smile, you need a restoration that repairs the appearance of the tooth as well as its strength and function. Metal free restorations are crowns, bridges, inlays or onlays that are crafted of dental porcelain or ceramic. The material looks and works just like your natural tooth enamel, and it is sturdy enough to provide years of lasting strength and health for your smile.
A metal free restoration is placed over the course of two visits to Fox Creek Family Dental. During the first appointment, we will prepare your affected tooth or teeth and place a temporary restoration. By the time you return to our office for the follow-up visit, the crown, bridge, inlay or onlay has been manufactured and is ready for final placement. With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your restoration to last for many years.
With the same material that we use for a tooth colored filling, your cosmetic dentist can make minor repairs that make a big difference for cosmetically flawed front teeth. Composite resin is applied directly onto the tooth and then carefully shaped into a more aesthetically pleasing form. At Fox Creek Family Dental, your dentists take an approach that blends true artistry with restorative skill to really transform your smile.
Direct bonding is often recommended to correct the following cases:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Slightly gapped teeth
- Misshapen teeth (pointy or stubby teeth)
- Stained teeth
Direct bonding can last for many years with proper care. The porous material will absorb stains more quickly than your natural tooth enamel, however, so try not to smoke or hold colored beverages in your mouth for an extended period of time. You can also drink out of a straw to avoid any contact at all.
With an in-office Zoom! Whitening treatment, your dentist can erase the stains on top of and just below the surface of your teeth. Highly pigmented foods and beverages, insufficient dental hygiene, tobacco use, and even certain medications can all cause your teeth to look less than their best. But with a quick in-office treatment, we can brighten your enamel by up to eight shades in just one hour! Your results can last for several years to come with proper care and occasional touchups.
If you wish to reveal your whitening results more gradually, an at-home treatment may be best for you. We’ll first create your custom trays, which you fill with the high-powered bleach every morning or evening during the treatment. You’ll notice some improvements immediately, and after about two weeks, your final, dazzling results are revealed! All new patients to Fox Creek Family Dental are eligible to receive free at-home whitening treatment as a friendly welcome to our practice.
