We use cosmetic dentistry to target areas of your smile that cause embarrassment, such as teeth stains or even misshapen teeth. We have a variety of different procedures, some of which can address multiple concerns. What cosmetic treatments do we offer? Which ones are right for you?
Our Cosmetic Procedures
- Teeth Whitening: We have two different options for teeth whitening. Our in-office treatment can remove discoloration in about one to two hours using a special light and a bleaching gel. We also have an at-home alternative, which employs plastic trays and a powerful bleaching gel to lift stains and brighten teeth by multiple shades in about a week to ten days. We will examine your discoloration and assess the severity to decide which option is best for you.
- Porcelain Veneers: Using porcelain, we create a thin restoration that covers the front and the sides of a tooth. Stain-resistant, durable, and lifelike in appearance, veneers can completely reshape the teeth, masking stains, closing gaps between teeth, fixing chipped or malformed teeth, and even correcting the appearance of minor misalignment. With veneers, we can alter the shape and shade of your teeth in as little as two visits.
- Dental Bonding: Using the same metal-free composite resin we use for white fillings, we can also repair minor chips, close minor gaps between teeth, and even mask permanent teeth stains. We may use these with veneers for a more cost-effective way to hide serious discoloration. The entire treatment only takes one visit to complete.
- Dental Contouring: Instead of adding composite resin as we do with bonding, we actually gently buff away a small amount of tooth structure. In doing so, we ca remove pits or grooves in the tooth’s surface, correct malformed teeth, or even dull overly pointed teeth. We can complete this procedure in a single visit!
