At VIP Dental, we specialize in the following procedures:
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured material bonded to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than composite veneers and improve the appearance of your natural teeth.
Tooth whitening is a simple procedure to help visibly reduce the appearance of stains and yellowing. A whiter, brighter smile can help increase your confidence and make you appear years younger.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A metal root is inserted into the jawbone, and then a new tooth is attached to the artificial root. The metal root anchors the new tooth, making it feel strong and natural.
Porcelain inlays are fillings that are permanently bonded to your teeth. Unlike metal fillings, porcelain inlays match the colour of your teeth giving you a bright, white, natural smile.
Porcelain onlays are also very durable and natural looking. However, porcelain onlay fillings are used when there is existing damage to the chewing cusps.
Composite fillings help reshape and restore decaying teeth. Composite fillings are a special mixture of glass and plastic customized to match the colour of your teeth. They are very durable and work best in smaller cavities. Composite fillings are placed in layers and hardened by a specialized light. Your dentist will then shape the composite material to fit your tooth.
A porcelain crown is like a little cap that is customized to fit over a weakened or broken tooth. Porcelain crowns restore and strengthen the damaged tooth and offer a natural, aesthetically pleasing finish. An impression of your tooth will be taken in order to construct the crown. A temporary crown will be placed until the final product is finished and can be fitted.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges
Porcelain fixed bridges replace missing teeth. A porcelain fixed bridge is a permanent, natural-looking way to fill in gaps in your smile. Two crowns will be placed over anchoring teeth on either side of the gap, and a bridge featuring artificial teeth will fill the empty space. A fixed bridge will prevent your remaining teeth from shifting and allows you to eat and speak normally.
