With porcelain veneers, your dream smile can be a reality. Porcelain veneers are custom-made pieces of porcelain that are 3/10 mm thick, and bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to conceal several cosmetic imperfections at once. Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are misaligned, chipped, gapped, worn, or stained. Dr. Joe Armel has been placing porcelain veneers since 1980. Today, we also use DURAthin® veneers, which require no shots, no reduction of tooth enamel, and no temporaries to provide a dazzling, natural look.
Teeth whitening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to eliminate deep stains and illuminate your smile. Although you can buy bleaching kits over the counter, professional teeth whitening produces a much better result, and is much safer. Virtually anyone who would like to remove surface stains and rejuvenate their appearance is a candidate for teeth whitening.
If you wish to improve the appearance of your smile, consider a smile makeover. This customized treatment combines two or more cosmetic dental procedures to create a beautiful and natural-looking smile. Dr. Armel is highly experienced and skilled in a range of cosmetic treatments. He will consider your overall aesthetic goals when determining your personalized treatment plan that may include orthodontics, whitening, bonding, gum contouring, or other procedures to help you achieve an unforgettable new smile.
Bonding is a simple and cost-effective way to conceal cracks, gaps, or chips affecting the appearance of your smile. The technique uses a composite resin material to cover imperfections and structural damage. Dr. Armel will apply and shape the resin, which closely matches the color of your tooth. He hardens the material with a special light, then polishes it to a natural-looking sheen. The improvement is immediate and takes less than an hour for each tooth.
