Family Dentistry

Before Family Dentistry

A 35 year old female patient came to Silver State Smiles to find out if anything could be done to give her a celebrity-style bigger, whiter smile. She was self-conscious of her small teeth and their colour.

After Family Dentistry

Eight porcelain veneers in a whiter colour were placed on the upper teeth to increase the size of each tooth and give her a brighter smile that is more even.

About the Treatments that Created this Whiter Gap Free, Longer Teeth Smile

To get the evenly sized tooth smile the patient wanted, the size of her incisor (eye) teeth and a number of other teeth was changed. Applying composite resin  directly to the teeth; with careful colour matching and sculpting. The patient’s teeth were cosmetically adjusted for a natural looking even smile. The entire treatment process was completed in one appointment

Composite Resin Dental Bonding

When composite resin is applied directly to the tooth, the tooth is first etched and then a process of colour matching and sculpting is undertaken to arrive at the ideally shaped tooth. The adhesively bonded resin is built up directly on the tooth surface and uses light to cure the bonding agent (the chemical that makes the resin stick to your tooth). This treatment is very fast when compared with other treatment options. It allowed our patient to achieve a dramatic overnight change to the appearance of her smile in a single dental appointment.
