A popular procedure to help your teeth look whiter, yet natural-looking, is cosmetic dental bonding. Using tooth-colored composites, our cosmetic dentist in Woodside, at Michael J. Weiss & Associates, will fill cavities, repair cracks, close gaps between teeth, and build up any worn edges of your teeth. Placed wherever is needed on your teeth, this material is needed to rebuild, resurface and whiten your teeth. Because dental bonding requires such precise placement of the restorative material, the bonding procedure is usually done in one visit. For minimally invasive smile makeovers, our cosmetic dentist in Woodside can apply the same composite materials directly to the surfaces of your teeth that show the most when you smile, and sculpt it to the surfaces for an amazingly realistic look. Dental bonding is usually an excellent, less expensive answer for patients with gaps, chips, stained, or crooked teeth. Usually needing minimal prep work, no molds and no temporaries, the artistic skill and meticulous technique our experts have with dental bonding will give you the result you want, while keeping much of your natural tooth.
Unlike dental veneers, which are manufactured in a lab and require our cosmetic dentist in Woodside to remove a large amount of healthy tooth structure, dental bonding material can be applied in a single office visit with minimal tooth removal. Dental bonding is not only one of the easiest, least invasive, and most conservative of all cosmetic dental procedures, but it’s fast and shows results immediately. Since very little tooth removal is required, dental bonding is also painless and usually performed without the use of an anesthetic.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material that are bonded to the front of your teeth. This conservative procedure requires little to no anesthesia and can be an ideal choice for improving the appearance of your front teeth. Veneers are used to cover discolorations, brighten teeth, and improve your smile. Our cosmetic dentist in Woodside will explain how veneers are ideal for hiding discolored fillings in your front teeth, gaps between front teeth, or teeth that are chipped or worn. Veneers will last for many years, and we have had much success performing the technique. At Michael J. Weiss & Associates, we encourage you to be involved in the planning of your enhanced smile, and make sure you understand all aspects of the process you’ve chosen.
