VENEERS AND CROWNS
Dr. Altomonte can restore your damaged teeth using either veneers or crowns. Veneers are very thin custom-made wafers of tooth-colored porcelain that are cemented to the front of a tooth to improve its appearance and protect the tooth’s surface from damage. Veneers are made to match the shape and color of your natural tooth. A crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped “cap” that is affixed to a tooth to completely cover it. A crown is also made to match the size, shape and color of your natural tooth. After examining your teeth, Dr. Altomonte will discuss with you the best option to restore your damaged tooth.
Teeth can become stained for a variety of reasons, but Dr. Altomonte can help improve the appearance of your smile using a professional in-office Philips Zoom treatment or by providing you with at-home Ultradent Opalescence teeth whitening treatments. Before beginning either treatment, we will work with you to determine a target shade for your teeth that will whiten your smile without looking fake.
If you choose Zoom, during a one-hour treatment we will carefully apply a professional-grade whitening gel to each tooth and activate the gel by exposing it to a special light. Using this method, it is possible to safely lighten your teeth up to eight shades.
If you prefer to lighten your smile more gradually at home, we can create customized trays in our office that fit in your mouth to comfortably encase your teeth. For patients whose teeth are very sensitive, we can provide desensitizing trays. For home whitening, you will be provided with professional whitening gel to insert into the trays, which you will wear each night for about two weeks to lighten your teeth several shades.
