Direct Bonding (Veneers)



Whitening often will mask minor imperfections, such as chips, in your front teeth. However if whitening is not sufficient to take care of the minor problem, you may ask us about shot-less, drill-less cosmetic bonding. This is also called Direct Veneering. This procedure is both painless and relatively inexpensive. This procedure calls for Dr. Chao to literally paint life-like composite material that becomes “bonded” to the enamel of your teeth. It’s like he’s painting a beautiful tooth on a canvas. The result is instant and dramatic. Patients are astounded at the transformation. You will leave with a before and after photo that you will enjoy showing and bragging to your friends and relatives. The following are examples of some of our dramatic before and after results.

Cowards Welcome: All of our services are done with the explicit goal of making your experience as comfortable as possible. You will be amazed at how quickly your anxiety can vanish! We see this happen every day.
