Whitening or Bleaching:
More people than ever are asking us about whitening or bleaching teeth these days, and then getting it done. It's a simple process. A bleaching agent is applied to teeth to brighten discolored or stained teeth. At Papania Dental, we use several kinds of bleaching products for the in-office portion of the treatment. We may also give you a kit to take home for you to continue the treatment program to help you achieve the whitest, brightest smile possible.
In the bonding process, we apply or “bond” tooth-colored materials to the surface of your tooth or teeth to improve the appearance of stained, chipped, broken or cracked teeth, or to minimize gaps between teeth. Bonding is also the process by which we attach a filling or some type of bridge to your teeth.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells (laminates) made out of tooth-colored materials that we use to cover the front side of your teeth to correct stained, badly shaped or crooked teeth.
