Repairing Chipped, Cracked or Worn Teeth
Porcelain overlays, or veneers, are the most popular and significant improvement in the quest for the perfect smile. These "modern" veneers are specially made, ultra-thin laminates that are bonded to the front, sides and bottoms of teeth with a newly developed, light-activated adhesive. They look absolutely genuine and can be precisely shaded for perfect color matching.
These veneers offer key advantages over the caps and resin bonding they replaced:
- Translucence. Small amounts of light are allowed to pass through, creating a depth not available with previous methods.
- Thickness variation. Porcelain overlays also vary in thickness, allowing the dental professionals at Hires Dental Studio to close gaps between teeth.
- Structural integrity. Earlier caps were often detectable because of darkness at the gum line. This darkness was caused by the edge of the metal underscore that provided stability to the cap. New veneers do not require this and are bonded directly to the underlying tooth, eliminating the possibility of detection by others.
In addition to porcelain overlays, Hires Dental Studio can provide crowns, bridges and fillings that utilize new materials and bonding agents that make them far less apparent than they were in the past. Fillings can be perfectly matched so that they look exactly like the surrounding tooth.
Fixing Gum Recession
The relationship of tooth to gum is critical in aesthetic appearance, because when a receding gum line is too low on the bottom or too high on the top, teeth look long and old. Hires Dental Studio can solve this problem through minor laser surgeries that are quick, easy and virtually pain- and recovery-free.
A tooth's dimensions and its relationship to nearby teeth affect smile appeal and natural authenticity, and the professionals at Hires Dental Studio are skilled at making sure proportion and coloration are in balance with the unique needs of the individual.
We also specialize in Preventative Care and Children's Dental Services.
