The treatments both will not only improve your smile, but your overall appearance and confidence as well!
Composite Bonding Offers An Array Of Improvements
Cosmetic composite bonding is a quick and easy way to improve your smile. Your dentist will assess your smile of areas which can be improved. Next, they will work with you to make those changes. Maybe you don’t like the spacing of your teeth, maybe one tooth is shorter than the next one or has a noticeable chip. All these things are able to be improved with cosmetic composite bonding. Using technique sensitive procedures, your dentist prepares the tooth, applies the composite; which is a resin-based tooth coloured material, and cures it with a special curing light. This procedure will fill in any gaps, improve any inconsistencies of the tooth structure or elongate tooth structures to match the surrounding teeth. Simply put, you can update and refresh your smile in one visit!

Another procedure that can give your smile a dramatic change is that of cosmetic porcelain veneers. Cosmetic porcelain veneers offer a permanent long-term option for transforming your smile! Many patients comment how they feel, “so great about how they look”, once they have their new porcelain veneers placed! Your dentist will work with you to plan out your veneer case. There are many things to consider, veneers can improve the shape, size, contour and shade of your teeth.
