Porcelain veneers can help correct the appearance of stained, chipped, crooked, or poorly spaced teeth. If you have any of these issues, porcelain veneers are a great answer to create the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers are recommended most often for those who have problems with their front teeth such as those individuals that have extra spaces between their teeth.
Veneers are strong, thin shells of acrylic or porcelain, which are bonded to the front of your teeth and create a beautiful, white, fresh new smile in as little as two visits! This wafer-thin porcelain is form-fitted to each individual problem tooth and is as strong as one's own teeth. Veneers resist future discolouration as well.
If you have any questions about improving your smile, speak with Dr. Pampena or one of our Pines Dental team members today about the possibility of porcelain veneers.
Before & After
Dr. Pampena and his team of dental professionals, here at The Pines Dental in Welland, offer both crowns and bridges for a number of cosmetic and functional situations.
If you are missing some of your teeth, don't worry, Dr. Pampena and his team can help you. Dr. Pampena knows that losing one or more teeth has an unwelcome impact socially and psychologically. That is why Dr. Pampena wants you to understand what crown treatments can do for you. Crowns can be a long lasting solution to help you improve your smile and health.
Crown procedures permanently replace missing and worn tooth structure. Dr. Pampena utilizes very strong, esthetic dental materials to restore teeth to their natural function and beauty. This technology has evolved so that in certain cases, all-ceramic (porcelain) materials are used. These metal-free restorations are not only very strong, but life-like too. Sometimes crowns are constructed in conjunction with other cosmetic services, such as porcelain laminates, to create an entire new look. No special maintenance is necessary and the restorations generally last for many years.
Crowns are covers that fit over your teeth to restore and strengthen them. In dentistry, crowns are used to cover discoloured or unevenly shaped teeth, to protect weak or decayed teeth, to restore a fractured tooth, to attach a bridge or to strengthen teeth after a root canal treatment. Crowns can be made of different materials, including acrylic, metal and porcelain. Today, all ceramic tooth-coloured crowns are most commonly used. The type of ceramic varies depending on the need for greater aesthetics vs. strength. For example, we would recommend a different ceramic for front teeth compared to back teeth because molar teeth need to be stronger to withstand the forces of chewing.
If you have any questions or concerns about crowns, come to our office in Welland, ON or speak to one of The Pines Dental team members today.
Dental bonding is one dental procedure that is commonly used to enhance the appearance of teeth and to improve the overall smile. Dr. Pampena utilizes this technique to change the overall shape of teeth so that crooked teeth look straighter. Another method is to use dental bonding to fill in the gaps between the teeth. Overall, dental bonding is useful in the following situations:
To repair: decayed, chipped or cracked teeth
To restore: renew discoloured teeth or close gaps
To reshape: lengthen or change contour of the teeth
To reinforce: protect an exposed root caused by receded gums
Bonding is a procedure in which tooth-coloured material is used to close gaps or change tooth colour. Of all cosmetic dental procedures, including veneers and crowns, bonding can be the quickest and most affordable option and is usually accomplished in one office visit unless multiple teeth require attention.
Although cosmetic dental bonding is less costly then veneers and crowns, it must be kept in mind that it is also usually not as long lasting. If you have any questions about dental bonding, please feel free to speak with Dr. Pampena on what the best options for your cosmetic dental restoration would be.
