Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, a a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.

As on of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preservers most of the natural tooth structure. And it's fast, too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.

Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth.

In terms of the process to place veneers, it is a process that takes approximately two to three visits. In the first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we are going to accomplish by placing the veneers. Once we have put a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth for the placement of the new veneers. As we complete this piece of the process, the next step is to take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. This impression will be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. We only utilize the highest standard laboratory for fabrication of all of our work. This process at the laboratory takes between 10-14 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear for this time.

As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that your new veneers will feel just like your natural teeth. We will bond them into place ensuring that you can enjoy your new smile for a very long time!

Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

Inlays and Onlays | Palm Coast Family Dentistry | Jayraj Patel DMD | Palm Coast, FL 32194We know you want to have a beautiful white smile and we can help. If you have cavities, silver fillings and crowns are not your only options. Our office can provide you with other choices for restoration depending on your teeth and needs.

Inlays and onlays are a stronger, more attractive alternative to silver or amalgam fillings. They are often used to repair teeth that don’t need a crown but need a bit more than a filling. Inlays and onlays also preserve more of your tooth, which is our preference because it’s our goal to help you keep your natural smile for a lifetime.

SnapOn Smile

Snap on smiles are growing in popularity for numerous reasons. The devices are easy and painless to create, a dentist simply takes an impression of the teeth to be covered and off of that mold (and the feedback of a patient) fake teeth are constructed that will easily lock into place over an existing smile. While with other types of restorative dentistry dental health is a high priority in order for the treatments to take, a snap on smile can instantly improve the looks while a patient and dentist can target dental health behind the scenes.
