Dentist Buffalo Grove
Bonding is a technique to improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged. A composite resin is bonded to the surface of the tooth and shaped by your dentist in Buffalo Grove into the desired form. A light is used to cure the resin finishing the process.
Porcelain laminate veneers are thin ceramic shells bonded directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. Veneers can be used to re-shape teeth, improve the look of your teeth due to stains, chips, fractures, poor alignment and textured teeth. Veneers provide a true smile cosmetic makeover. Our porcelain laminate veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains ensuring their quality and durability. Porcelain veneers are laboratory fabricated and typically require two appointments. Often a diagnostic wax up will be fabricated to show you the potential look of your future restoration. Veneers are typically more durable than bonding and are more resistant to staining and chipping. If you want to give your smile an upgrade with veneers, our team and Buffalo Grove dentist are waiting to help. Please visit our smile gallery to view examples of our restorations.
Inlays and Onlays
If more than fifty percent of a tooth’s biting surface is compromised a dentist will often use an inlay or onlay. They can be made of porcelain, gold, or a composite resin, and are bonded directly to the damaged area. An inlay goes inside the cusp tips of the tooth, while an onlay extends out over one or more of the cusps.
Two appointments are required for these procedures, but it is to ensure a proper fit and your comfort. After the treatment is complete you can expect teeth that will be up to 75% stronger and results that typically last for decades!
Your smile is one of the first things a person will notice when you meet. If you have stained, dull or discolored teeth, teeth whitening may be a great option for you.
Even healthy teeth discolor over time. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.
Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile. You can look younger and feel more confident with a whiter smile.
Your teeth and gums must be healthy enough for whitening. Before recommending whitening, we will carefully evaluate your smile. Contact Morris Dental Solutions for more information or to schedule a consultation with Drs. Morris, Shiffman and Spina today.
