Veneers are the most aesthetic resolution to strengthen your front teeth. While bonding is a more temporary solution Veneers will last many years before needing to be restored. Our state of art dental laboratory will customize both the shape and color of each veneer to give you the most natural smile. Click here to see our Before & After Gallery.
Crowns are made to repair broken or chipped teeth, lighten tooth color, close gaps between teeth, and more. Crowns used to be made of pure metal, and recently it became popular to use a porcelain-metal mixture for a crown. Now we try to replace any metal crowns to use all-porcelain crowns because they look much more natural in the mouth. Metal crowns leave a dark blue line at the gum line, while porcelain crowns are nearly impossible to distinguish from natural teeth.
Bonding is a tooth colored material used to repair broken, chipped, or discolored teeth. Dr. Penrod takes pride in his ability to bond teeth in just one visit to beautifully transform smiles.
In certain cases, a minimal amount of movement is needed to achieve optimal tooth alignment. Rather than using metal braces, we may use these clear alignment trays for about 1-2 years to straighten out your smile!
Tooth-Colored Fillings and Crowns
Fillings used to be made of metal materials, but in the last 20-30 years or so, it’s become much more popular to use tooth-colored composites for tooth restorations. The main advantage to using the white composite is the improved aesthetics, however, it also helps strengthen tooth function. We can help replace your old metal fillings with beautiful natural looking fillings. Ask Dr. Penrod and his staff how we can best help restore your natural-looking smile with these composite fillings!
Sometimes we may need to replace an infected tooth, or add a brand new tooth to your smile. This can be done surgically with something called an implant. The basic procedure for an implant is to place a metal post into your gums and, once its healed, seat a crown on top of the post. The result is a natural-looking, fully functional tooth!
