Veneers and Laminates
This is one way to quickly get that beautiful smile. Veneers and Laminates
are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the
teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics
of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost
tooth structure where indicated.
Dr. Veytsman will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if
veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically
transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.
Veneers can enhance the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you
want, and give you the smile you have always desired. Additionally, Veneers are
bonded to your tooth structure, which gives them strength.
Since they are very thin, Veneers are considered one of the most conservative
cosmetic treatments available. Most of the time, very little or no tooth
structure is removed before placing veneers. Ask Dr. Veytsman how veneers can
improve your smile.

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are lab-made restorations that are placed on teeth when the
cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a simple filling.
The process of making an inlay is very similar to a crown. After the tooth is
prepared, it is cemented or bonded to the tooth.
There are different materials that inlays are made of, including gold,
porcelain, and composite resins. Porcelain and composite inlays and onlays are
cosmetic alternatives to fillings and are very strong compared to regular white
fillings. Gold inlays and onlays are also suitable alternatives, but their
appearance makes them less popular.
Dr. Veytsman will explain when an inlay or onlay is a viable treatment option
for you. In general, inlays and onlays can replace most back teeth fillings and
are sometimes cosmetically preferred over conventional fillings. At the same
time, they are more conservative than crowns.
As far as cost is concerned, because the process of making an inlay or onlay
is similar to a crown, its cost is also comparable. But when considering the
longevity of inlays and onlays, they can end up costing less than traditional
