Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded tot the front surfaces of the patient’s teeth. Veneers are durable and virtually indistinguishable from healthy white tooth enamel, and are highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea or tobacco stains. At 7th Street Dental our dentists install quality porcelain veneers, using proven bonding materials. As with all our treatments, we advise our patients on how to properly care for and prevent damage to porcelain veneers.
Tooth whitening is a simple, affordable and safe way to improve the look of your smile. Our dental whitening process works on people of any age to correct yellow, brown or spotted tooth stains. In cases of extreme tooth discolouration, crowns or veneers may be required, but for most patients tooth whitening is a low-cost and effective treatment option. Let us know at your appointment if you would like us to whiten your teeth, or contact us to set it up for you.
An inlay is similar to a filling in that it repairs a decayed or damaged area inside the cusp of a tooth. An onlay is typically more substantial and can extend over the cusp. The advantage to inlays and onlays is whereas traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a tooth by up to 50%, inlays and onlays, which are bonded onto the tooth using high-strength resin, can increase the tooth’s strength by up to 75%. In some cases, onlays can be a feasible option to a full crown.
