Veneers are suitable for patients that have large spacing in between teeth, discolored or stained teeth, broken or chipped teeth. Veneers can help in correcting uneven or crooked teeth.

Facts About Crown and Bridge Treatment
If you are faced with tooth loss, crown and bridge treatment may be the right restorative option for you. This long-term solution can help prevent the cycle of problems that can occur when just one tooth is missing, such as shifting of the remaining teeth, decay, periodontal disease and bone loss. A crown is a tooth-like covering placed over an existing tooth because the remaining may have been fractured or broken. One of the most common uses is to support a tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth.
A bridge is a custom device anchored to the neighboring teeth that replace one or more missing teeth.
