Nobel Biocare Single Visit Implants
|Nobel Biocare provides a versatile
range of implants, suited to every indication you could encounter
and all designed to deliver Beautiful Teeth Now.
This concept makes it possible for patients to leave the dentist directly after implant placement with their new teeth in place ready to eat, drink and smile.
Lumineers & Veneers are laboratory fabricated, porcelain facings that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to whiten teeth, close spaces, straighten teeth, or repair chipped or worn teeth. The veneers are only about 1 mm thick (the thickness of a fingernail).
White fillings replace silver or gold fillings with a more natural looking tooth-colored material. Since teeth are translucent, dark fillings cause the whole tooth to appear darker when viewed from the side. Replacing older dark fillings with white fillings will keep your smile glowing!
Teeth Whitening is a very popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. It is a relatively easy and effective technique for obtaining a dazzling, whiter smile, at home, in a matter of days.
Bonding is a procedure where tooth-colored composite resin material is placed
to "fill in the blanks." One of the most frequent uses
of the bonding technique is to fill in a gap between front teeth.
Enamel Shaping (Contouring) is the process of shaping natural teeth to improve their appearance. Shaping can be used to correct minor cases of crowded or overlapping teeth, smooth rough edges, or make small adjustments to the shape of a tooth.
Caps (Crowns) are rarely used for cosmetic correction any more, since the advent of veneers, but in some cases a crown may be necessary for a particular tooth. A tooth with a bad fracture or a large filling that is breaking down, or has decay around it, may be a candidate for a crown instead of a veneer. This patient has veneers on top, but one of the front teeth had a large filling and had to be crowned.
Orthodontics is no longer just braces. Arch expanders can sometimes be used in younger children to prevent or minimize any need for braces. A patient that needs braces now has a choice of silver or white/clear brackets. Retainers may be used to help maintain straight teeth. Adults now have the option of wearing an "invisible" retainer to correct mild to moderate crowding.
