Tooth Colored Fillings
Patients can feel awkward or uncomfortable with their fillings if they don’t blend in with the shade of their teeth. With this advancement, receiving tooth-colored fillings will not only look natural but will allow patients to feel natural while they talk, smile and laugh. This composite filling blends well with your enamel and adheres to your dental cosmetic needs.
Front Teeth Bonding & Veneers
Dental bonding is a restoration procedure where a tooth-colored resin is bonded to a tooth to improve a cosmetic dental issue; some of these issues are repairing chipped or broken teeth, closing spaces between teeth, changing their shape, and more! Bonding is a faster procedure that can be done in one dental visit. Call our office to see if dental bonding is the right procedure for you.
Dental veneers are thin custom-made shells that cover the surface of your tooth to improve their appearance, whether it’s because of discoloration, spaces, chips, or breaks. They’re made to look natural to the rest of your smile while also improving the shape and/or size of your teeth. Veneers are meant to last longer than bonding, depending on what type of veneers that you receive. Discuss with your dentist at Erieview Dental to see if this procedure is best for your dental care.
A dental crown is the chosen procedure for when a patient’s tooth is broken or decayed to the point where fillings are not the solution. The crown provides a protective shell around the injured tooth to strengthen it, as well as improving its appearance to make it look natural once again. The different types of crowns depend on the individual patient because each case is unique and should be thoroughly discussed with your dentist.
Inlays and onlays are similar cosmetic procedures to crowns and fillings by replacing missing parts of your tooth. This treatment is usually for patients who have experienced tooth decay, cracks, or chips. An inlay is when the custom-made piece is attached to the damaged part while an onlay is extended to cover the entire surface of the tooth.
A dental bridge is a false tooth that’s used to fill the gap because of a missing tooth or missing teeth. The reason for filling this space is because your dental health is at a much higher risk without your teeth in that spot. Your gums are vulnerable, the shape of your teeth may shift, and your jaw can begin losing its strength, as well.

- Botox/Dermal Fillers
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment which can cause facial expression lines or wrinkles to essentially disappear. Areas most frequently treated are the glabellar area of frown lines (located between the eyes), crow's feet (lateral areas of the eyes), and forehead wrinkles. Injections produce a more youthful appearance by softening deep wrinkles. Botox has important clinical uses as an adjunct in TMJ and bruxism cases, and for patients with chronic TMJ and facial pain. It is also used to compliment aesthetic dentistry cases as a minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip line cases, denture patients who have trouble adjusting to new dentures, lip augmentation, and has uses in orthodontic cases where retaining of the facial muscles is necessary.
