If you have stained or yellowed teeth, home whitening programs may be for you. We provide you with everything you need and supervise the simple process. Schedule an exam with Dr Lanning to see if home whitening is a viable option for improving your smile..
Porcelain veneers are a very nice way to change color or shape, repair chipping, and rebuild broken front teeth. A veneer is simply a porcelain covering over the tooth that both gives natural color and bridges small gaps. Veneers can sometimes be a suitable alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a near perfect smile. Contact our office to schedule a cosmetic consultation to see if Veneers are the best option for the smile you've always wanted.
Bonding is covering of the front surface of teeth with durable plastic to either change a tooth's shape or color or to rebuild broken teeth. Bonding, similar to porcelain veneers though not as strong, is a low-cost way to improve your smile. Bonding is ideal for children with chipped front teeth and adults who need an alternative and understand the limitations.
Crowns are one of the strongest ways to change your teeth and are appropriate for many people. Porcelain Restorations are simply building a false tooth on the base of the damaged tooth. Let us help you decide which crowns are needed. Dr Lanning offers Cerec™ technology which is an all ceramic/porcelain restoration that is completed in one visit. No temporaries and no follow up visit necessary.
Implants are as close as we can come to putting a natural tooth back in the place of a missing tooth. Implants have improved to the point that they now give very predictable results. If you are missing teeth, and especially if you want to get rid of a partial denture, implants may be a good choice for you. This treatment is performed in coordination with a local implant specialist. Dr Lanning offers mini-implants for denture wearers.
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Because the are tooth-colored, they are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth. If you already have silver fillings and would like a more aesthetic and healthy alternative, you may want to consider replacing them with Inlays or Onlays.
