PORCELAIN VENEERS

Porcelain Veneers are designed to correct the appearance of . The shape, length, and width of the teeth can be altered with porcelain veneers to better complement the facial features and restore balance and symmetry to the smile.

They can help your teeth to appear WHITER, STRAIGHTER and SHAPED BEAUTIFULLY.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that bond to the front surfaces of teeth. Custom-made for each individual patient, the color of each veneer is closely matched to the patient's teeth. With a semi-translucent, enamel-like quality, porcelain veneers allow light to be absorbed and reflected off the dentin beneath, resulting in bright, luminescent teeth that look completely natural.

Placing porcelain veneers is usually a three-step process that begins with a light buffing of the teeth to eliminate about one half millimeter of enamel. A mold of the patient's mouth will then be made and used to create veneers that fit perfectly to their teeth. During the final phase of treatment, the veneers will be fitted and bonded to the teeth, resulting in a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the patient's smile. Harmony Dental Arts is pleased to provide three very distinct veneer services that are tailored to meet the needs and schedules of all patients;

CONVENTIONAL CERAMIC VENEERS are made of the finest techniques and porcelains available. They involve 2 visits, including temporaries between visits, and are the least costly of all veneers. They provide beautiful esthetics, and many years of service.

Each of these processes has their own pros and cons that are specific to each individual case, and the treatment prescribed by our doctors is tailored to each individual case.

TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

Advances in modern dental materials enable patients to have teeth that are decayed, damaged, or worn repaired with tooth-colored fillings. At Harmony Dental Arts, we can repair teeth and replace old fillings using a natural-looking composite resin closely matched to the color of the patient's teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings avoid the health risks associated with the mercury that is contained in and sometimes released from metal fillings. For patients who are concerned about these amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings provide an excellent solution.

When larger restorations are needed on back teeth, tooth-colored restorations made of strong ceramics are used. These are more compatible with tooth structure, and are stronger than metal fillings. They adhere to teeth tightly, preventing further damage and decay. Since the materials we use are so durable, they can predictably be used to repair back teeth, where pressure from chewing is greatest. Tooth-colored fillings support the remaining tooth structure, help to prevent breaks and cracks, and insulate the tooth from temperature changes that can cause pain in sensitive nerve endings. Therefore, tooth-colored fillings are excellent for repairing teeth while providing the most aesthetically pleasing results possible.

Inlays And Onlays

For teeth that have become damaged or decayed, inlays and onlays provide a more conservative alternative to tradition dental crowns. An inlay replaces tooth structure within the cusp tips of molars, while more extensive tooth damage can be treated and corrected with onlays which cover the entire chewing surface of the tooth.

While crowns require a large, outer portion of the damaged tooth be removed, inlays and onlays only require that the decayed parts of the tooth be drilled away. Once that task has been accomplished, a mold of the tooth is made so the inlay or onlay can be created to fit the existing tooth structure precisely. Porcelain or a composite resin is used to create the inlay or onlay in our lab. When ready, the inlay or onlay is bonded to the tooth, providing a new chewing surface and greater support for the tooth structure.

Inlays and onlays are more durable than most crowns and typically provide several decades of tooth support. They are also more aesthetically pleasing, especially as compared to metal crowns.
