You can get just one to enhance a single tooth or an entire set to achieve a complete smile makeover. They are always custom-made to a patient’s specifications, so the only limit is your imagination.
If one of your front teeth becomes damaged or decayed, we understand that restoring its health and appearance are paramount, which is why we will only use beautiful, natural-looking metal-free restorations to do so. Crowns made of either E-Max or Zirconia are 100% ceramic, and because of this, they can be designed to be extremely lifelike. The material is strong, durable, but it can also be shaded to perfectly match real enamel in every way, even down to how it reflects light.
Direct cosmetic tooth bonding offers a quick and easy way to get rid of minor flaws that throw off the entire look of the smile. With it, you can say goodbye to that one pesky stain, chip, or gap that has been driving you crazy for years. For this, Dr. Chandy will apply a naturally-colored composite resin to a tooth, and then she’ll literally sculpt it until it’s the perfect shape and size. The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour, is completely painless, and the results can last for 10 years or more.
