Porcelain Veneers or Laminates
Veneers or laminates are the most esthetic choice to repair, reshape or enhance the appearance of the front teeth, and used routinely for Smile Design or Smile Makeovers. There are several types and brands of veneers, from no-prep veneers to minimal-prep to full reduction veneers and they each have their indications and contraindications. Your dentist can determine what type fit your case. For more information about veneers click here for our Porcelain Veneers in West Palm Beach page.
Bonding is a term that has been commonly use to refer to veneers, but it is actually the technique that dentists use to glue or adhere the restorative material (tooth colored filling material, porcelain laminates, crowns) to tooth structure. Bonding uses a tooth-like material, which appears natural, to reshape your teeth. Bonding will restore dental imperfections or injuries quickly, affordably and without pain! Bonding can be used for veneers, tooth colored fillings, sealants to prevent cavities and many other applications.

Crowns And Bridges
A Crown is a type of dental restoration which completely surrounds a tooth and it is cemented on to it.. Crowns can by made from many materials, porcelain being used in the cosmetic areas of the mouth. Crowns are used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. A bridge, or fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by attaching them to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

Bleaching or Whitening
Bleaching is a process that removes stain and discoloration from the teeth. The bleaching agent can be applied by a dentist at a dental visit, or self applied at home. Due to the safety and simplicity (not to mention the lesser cost) of the procedure, I prefer the self applied method of delivery, and all the information that follows pertains to that technique. Dr. Boudet uses a safe and effective method of in-home bleaching that reduces the chance of having hypersensitivity after bleaching, and will not damage tooth enamel or dental restorations. Every Cosmetic Dentist in West Palm Beach recommends bleaching before doing any porcelain work to give you the lightest shade possible. Click here for more detailed information about bleaching.
Smile Design or Smile Makeover
You can have the “smile of your dreams!” in very few appointments. If you have discolored, damaged or crowded teeth and don't want undergo orthodontic treatment, porcelain veneers can create an almost instant smile-makeover. These wonderful dental restorations, which are very strong and incredibly natural-looking, can give you a beautiful smile as well as enhance your appearance. Let West Palm Beach Cosmetic Dentist Carlos Boudet, DDS give you a smile you will be happy to show. Full or Partial Mouth Reconstruction Patients with severe wear, neglect, or multiple missing teeth, often require reconstruction of their entire dentition by restoring every tooth in their mouth. Restoring the appearance, comfort and function in these complex cases can be very rewarding for these patients.
Invisalign and Short Term Orthodontics
Invisalign is included in the category of cosmetic services since it is very desirable for the cosmetic minded individual that needs orthodontics to be done without the wires and brackets that can affect your smile. Please go to our page on Invisalign here. Sometimes "Short Term Orthodontics" is desireable to get the best results from cosmetic dental work.
