Woman covering mouth with hand | Dentist Edina MNBonding is used frequently to fix chipped teeth. Bonding uses tooth color material called composite to repair the natural tooth. Bonding is very strong and can last for many years if cared for properly. In some cases of severe chipping or wear, veneers or crowns (made of ceramic) may be recommended for an even stronger restoration.

Woman flossing teeth | edina mn DentistIf you're not satisfied with the appearance of your smile, come talk to us about porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to repair certain dental issues or update your teeth with a complete makeover. Many people are enjoying the esthetics that veneers add to their smile, but how long can you rely on these restorations?

Each case is different, but veneers last!

While results vary greatly with each patients, we do know that dental veneers in Edina are a durable and reliable treatment. Because they're directly bonded to the surface of your tooth, they can actually add strength to your tooth. You'll be able to brush and floss your veneers just like you would normally, and with excellent home care and regular visits to your dentist, your veneers can potentially last for 12 to 15 years.

Veneers are ideal for restoring a number of dental issues such as:

  • Gaps and spacing between teeth
  • Small fractures or chipping
  • Size discrepancies or misshapen teeth
  • Slight misalignment
  • Staining or discoloration
  • Excessive wear

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that can be used by our dentists at 50th and France Dental Care to fix imperfections, repair damage, and reshape your teeth. older man with a blue shirt smiling with onlays

Inlays and onlays can be created using a variety of materials, but tooth-colored porcelain is the material used most often. The porcelain dental restoration is bonded to your natural tooth, and it will blend beautifully into your smile.

What’s the Difference?

An inlay is usually used to bolster the structure of a decayed tooth or to replace a defective filling. Onlays are used similarly but can work for larger sections of the tooth, extending into the cusp area. 

When we create inlays or onlays in our dental office, they are customized for your teeth to give you the best feel and look. 

Inlays and onlays can make a big difference when it comes to the appearance of your smile, and they can strengthen a damaged tooth, which is good for your oral health.
