Veneers (also known as laminates) are a restorative cosmetic procedure used to repair cracks, stains, discoloration, and fractures that can appear on teeth. Veneers can dramatically change your smile and boost your confidence!
Dental crowns (also known as caps) are custom-made, custom-fitted prosthetics designed to fit over or replace a damaged or weakened tooth. The aim is to restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength, stability, and overall appearance so you can stop living with the burden of damaged or weakened teeth and bring your smile back to life!
Inlays and Onlays
In the case of a tooth being too badly damaged for dental fillings but not damaged enough to a need a dental crown, Dr. Akinwande might suggest an inlay or onlay. They can be made from a variety of materials such as porcelain, composite resin, and even gold. When bonded with the tooth, they can restore both the bite function and your smile.
This cost-effective procedure is both quick and painless, and it can get you back to smiling in no time. It’s mainly designed to improve the overall appearance of discolored or chipped teeth or to protect a portion of a tooth root when the gum has receded. However, dental bonding can also be used to give the illusion of closing spaces between teeth and changing their shape so that they appear more evenly balanced. Now that’s something to smile about!
For patients who suffer from large gaps in their smiles, bridges might be the answer for you. A bridge is an appliance that fits onto crowns on either side of a gap created by a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. A fake tooth sits in the gap, essentially “bridging” the gap and completing your smile. Dr. Akinwande really knows how to fill the gap in dentistry!
