tooth colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are composite restorations that can restore decayed teeth, close gaps between teeth or replace fractured portions of teeth. These restorations are natural-looking and can be quite durable when used in small or medium sized areas.

smile design

Smile design is a process to improve the appearance of your smile. Models of your teeth and digital images will guide us as we discuss how to produce the smile you have always wanted. Smiles can be improved through bonding, crowns/veneers, reshaping gum tissue, reshaping hard tissue and orthodontics. Often a combination of these procedures is needed to achieve the desired goals of our patients.

cosmetic bonding

The dental bonding procedure utilizes a tooth colored composite resin for a variety of structural and cosmetic purposes to restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile.

teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that restores brightness to teeth, producing potentially dramatic results in about four weeks. Although both at-home and in-office treatments exist, Dr. Law generally prefers the at-home whitening method. Proven to be as effective as in-office treatments, at-home whitening costs less and does not cause the sensitivity associated with in-office treatment.

veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or protect a damaged tooth surface. Composite and dental porcelains are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth) or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory and then bonded to the tooth. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated in a dental lab and later bonded/cemented to the tooth.
