Our Gladstone dental clinic specializes in cosmetic dentistry. Our proficient and compassionate dentists are professionals when it comes to placing porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of dental porcelain which are permanently bonded to teeth. Some reasons for getting porcelain veneers include broken or chipped teeth, stains, gaps and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers can be custom-fitted to your teeth to improve the look of your smile.
While porcelain veneers are designed to improve the aesthetics of your teeth, they also function as tooth enamel. To place a veneer on a tooth, our dentists must first chip away a tiny layer of enamel to make room for the veneer. Then our dentists use a cohesive resin to firmly bond the veneer to the front surface of the tooth. Unlike your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are actually highly resistant to stains and will stay white for years. While porcelain veneers are very sturdy and compare in strength to natural teeth, we would still recommend that you avoid activities that damage regular teeth, such as crunching on ice cubes or opening bottles with your veneers.
Aside from cosmetic dental care, we offer a full range of preventative and restorative services. We do traditional cleanings and evaluations, fluoride treatments, fillings, crowns, bridges, sealants, root canals, cosmetic bonding, tooth implants and extractions, dentures, Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, gum graft surgeries, and even laser gum therapy.
