Improving Your Smile

Bonding and Veneers

Bonding uses a tooth-colored resin to close spaces between teeth, whiten teeth, and even lengthen small or misshapen teeth. Bonding is also a great repair option for chipped teeth.

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain or plastic that is bonded to an existing tooth in order to improve its color or shape. Veneers are generally used on the front and top of a tooth, and like bonding, can be used to close spaces between teeth, whiten teeth, and even lengthen small or misshapen teeth.

Inlays and Onlays

Dental Inlays and onlays are custom pieces created in a laboratory out of porcelain, new state-of-the art resins, and even gold to help in the restoration of damaged teeth. They are often used in repairing the biting surface of the teeth, much like a filling, and indeed are good alternatives to traditional fillings. An onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of your tooth and provides superior strength and longevity when compared to a filling of the same size.

Are inlays and onlays right for you? Scott A. Hudimac, DDS provides you with the information you need to make the right decision about your oral health.
