Using a resin that adheres to the front or back teeth, bonding can help to restore decayed teeth, lighten stains, close minor gaps or correct crooked teeth. Light etching the surface of a tooth prepares it for the placement of bonding resin on top. The tooth is bonded, sculpted, colored and shaped. Once finished with a high-intensity curing light, the surface is polished to complete your smile.
A convenient procedure often completed in just one visit, bonding can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth, and typically lasts three to five years (or longer) before needing any repairs.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. and are generally used to improve the overall look of your smile, especially if you have uneven chipped, stained, or crooked teeth.
Ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to stains from substances like coffee, tea, or tobacco.
The placement of veneers generally takes about three dental visits, and involves an initial consultation with Dr. Magelsen. Impressions of your teeth will be made and sent to the lab for the fabrication of your veneers.
The veneers will then be placed and bonded to your teeth during the third visit. Dr. Magelsen will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Veneers require the same type and amount of care as regular teeth. Brushing twice daily and flossing once a day, along with regularly scheduled trips to see Dr. Magelsen, will ensure a bright, healthy smile for years to come. We are proud to be a provider of the best cosmetic dentistry Monroe, WA has to offer!
An inlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Porcelain inlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth. A porcelain inlay is made by a professional dental laboratory and permanently cemented onto the tooth by Dr. Magelsen.
Inlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Inlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings. Also, they are more conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of inlays.
As with most dental restorations, inlays are not always permanent and may some day require replacement. They are highly durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
