Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of your natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Ask Dr. Be and his team if you’re a candidate to have your teeth whitened.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Reasons For Crowns:
Broken or fractured teeth.
Tooth has a root canal.
There are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. Crowns are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.
Sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth and used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
Reasons for getting Porcelain Veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
Severely discolored or stained teeth
Teeth that are too small or large
Unwanted or uneven spaces
Worn or chipped teeth
