I’m interested in changing the shape of my teeth. What are my options?

Several different options are available to change the shape of teeth, make them look longer, close spaces between teeth, or repair chipped or cracked teeth. Among those options are Bonding, Crowns, Veneers and recontouring. Choosing the option that is right for you is one of our most important consideration in order to give you that perfect smile.

  1. Reshaping or Recontouring: This method can be one of the simplest ways to make a dramatic improvement to your smile. Sometimes the visual edge of the smile has cracks, chips or irregularities that can be adjusted in just the right way to make a smile so – so smile become a great smile.
  2. Bonding: This technique can be used in combination with reshaping and recontouring to create some incredible results. Dr. Siwoski loves bonding because it feels as though it brings out the artist in him. In bonding we use the latest composites to sculpt teeth in a freeform technique. It is not as durable as veneers but it is also not as costly and it can all be done in one appointment often without freezing. Bonding is also covered by most dental plans.
  3. Veneers : This is probably the ultimate aesthetic results that we have available in dentistry today. With veneers we can alter almost any situation to give you that perfect smile. Veneers are a thin porcelain facing that wraps around the front surface of the teeth.
  4. Crowns: If you have existing large restorations or have extensive decay present in your teeth structurally a crown may be your best option. A crown encases the entire tooth and restoration to provide the best protection and structural strength. Crowns can be made entirely of gold, porcelain or a combination of both. We can help you to select the restoration that is best for you and your tooth.
