  • Contouring and Reshaping- A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.
  • Veneers- A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth.
