At 50th and France Dental Care, we want to bring your best smile out. The friendly and professional staff at our Edina dental office have the skills and technology to give you a beautiful, healthy smile, whether you just want your teeth a little whiter or you are seeking a full smile makeover.
Inlays, Onlays, and Bonding
If you have teeth that are chipped, gapped, or misshapen, we can fix them and make them look beautiful, straight, and whole again. We have several options to improve the appearance of your teeth, including inlays, onlays, and composite bonding.
Inlays and onlays are a technique using various materials, usually porcelain, to fill in imperfections and reshape your teeth. The restoration is bonded directly to your natural tooth, creating a seamless and beautiful restoration. The difference between an inlay and an onlay is mostly location. Inlays fill in interior imperfections like a filling, whereas onlays cover a surface of the tooth. Crowns are onlays that cover all tooth surfaces.
Bonding is done using composite resin, much like our tooth-colored fillings. The resin can be shaped directly on the tooth and then cured to harden into the proper shape. Bonding can be used to fix many cosmetic imperfections, including gaps, chips, short teeth, and oddly-shaped teeth. Bonding is a simple and fast way to improve your smile.
Dental veneers are thin shells, usually made of porcelain, that are fitted over your natural teeth for an immediate improvement of your smile. The veneers are custom crafted to fit your mouth, and can be used to fix a single tooth, an entire arch, or even all of your teeth. The porcelain veneers closely mimic real teeth and look healthy and natural.
If your smile needs a little more work, we offer customized Smile Makeover plans. These makeovers can include anything from teeth whitening, inlays, onlays, bonding, crowns, bridges, veneers... even implants. Your Edina dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your desired outcome before proposing a treatment plan that can transform your smile into the one you've always wanted.
Once you approve your treatment plan, you and your dentist will start working on making your best smile a reality. Some treatments may require other preparation, particularly if you have ongoing decay or gum disease. Your mouth needs to be healthy to get the best results, and we can help you get it there.
