There are a number of cosmetic dental treatments that can help patients have healthier and more attractive smiles. The procedures can range from simple to more complex, depending on your unique oral health needs. However, most are non-invasive and can provide you with a smile makeover in very little time!
For example, teeth whitening is a common procedure that can improve the appearance of teeth that have become stained or yellowed over time. Porcelain veneers are also a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. These are thin shells that are bonded directly to the front surfaces of the teeth to cover chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections. Along with these, we offer many other cosmetic services that help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
Sometimes, teeth can become discolored or stained from a variety of factors, including smoking, drinking dark beverages like coffee, tea, or wine, or simply getting older and noticing the natural yellowing of your teeth.
While at-home teeth whitening kits are readily available, they can have mixed results. Professional-grade whitening procedures are much more effective in removing stubborn stains and discolorations.
By visiting our dentist for a whitening procedure, you can brighten your smile by up to ten shades or more in just one visit! Special kits can be used at home to maintain your results so that you can enjoy a bright and beautiful smile for months or even years to come.
Cosmetic bonding is a procedure that uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material that perfectly bonds to the surface of the tooth, to cover and fix imperfections like cracks, chips, or even gaps. The bonding material bond is extremely strong and durable. In fact, with proper oral hygiene, bonding can last for up to ten years or more before it needs replacing!
These restorations are an excellent option for patients who want to change the shape or color of their teeth to improve their appearance. Our dentist will first prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from their surface so the veneers will lay flat against the surface of your natural teeth.
Then, we will take an impression of your mouth to be sent to our trusted dental lab, where your permanent veneers will be made from the highest-quality porcelain. After they are mailed to our office, we will bond them to your prepared teeth using a strong bonding agent and a special light to harden the adhesive, leaving you with a natural-looking smile with perfectly aligned, white teeth.
A dental crown is a type of restoration that fully covers a tooth above the gum line. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, gold alloys, and zirconia. Porcelain crowns are often preferred because they can be color matched to your surrounding teeth so that they blend in and look natural.
