Are you unhappy with your smile? Take a look at our cosmetic procedures that will improve the appearance of your teeth quickly and effectively.
Porcelain veneers are thin facings of tooth-colored porcelain that slip over a tooth to improve its appearance. At Sansome Dental we use these veneers as one of the most easy and esthetic ways to cover imperfections such as chips, permanent stains and even crooked teeth. Usually, it takes two visits to complete the process. Depending on your teeth, Dr. Joyce may or may not need to remove a layer of tooth enamel so that the veneer can be more easily bonded to the tooth.
Once this is completed Dr. Joyce will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory where the veneers are produced. At your second appointment the newly created veneers will be bonded into place. Dr. Joyce uses a high quality tooth colored porcelain that is valued for both its beauty and durability.
We're often asked about the proper color of teeth. The natural white color of your teeth should be similar to the white of your eye. Often habits such as coffee, tea or wine drinking, smoking, or eating heavily pigmented fruits like blueberries can darken our teeth. Also, teeth may be discolored from medications, decay or build up.
While you may be brushing, flossing, using mouthwash, and even whitening strips, you may still want to enhance your color with professional bleaching. Over the counter whitening products may lead to uneven distribution of bleach that can burn your gums and leave some teeth whiter than others. Many people also find they develop sensitivity when whitening.
Dr. Joyce custom tailors the type of bleach, intensity and duration of the bleaching program to get you the comfortable results you want in the time you need. We will discuss your needs to discover whether you need a quick lift of color for a special occasion, like a wedding, or if you need a long-term solution for a brighter lifestyle. We offer in-office and at-home whitening packages with custom made trays to fit your teeth exactly.
