If you’d prefer to transform your smile from top-to-bottom, porcelain veneers are ideal. Fabricated from dental porcelain, veneers are very thin sheaths that are customized to bond to natural teeth and hide multiple imperfections at a time. Thanks to their smooth texture, they are actually more stain-resistant than enamel!
Dentist often use gold, silver, or nickel to restore teeth. However, these materials can lead to tooth sensitivity, discoloration, and even trigger an allergic reaction. Alternatively, our dental office uses dental porcelain that’s customized to match your existing enamel, ensuring a healthy, yet aesthetically-pleasing smile.
Through cosmetic bonding, we can use composite resin to enhance your smile, all while keeping it natural-looking in the process. We can even fix chips, cracks, small gaps, and permanent stains on teeth with this non-invasive process. In most cases, treatment can be completed in just one visit for even more convenience.
With professional-grade teeth whitening, looking younger and hiding cosmetic flaws becomes incredibly easy. We provide Opalescence take-home whitening kits that are customized to fit your smile, ensuring even coverage and the best results possible. All you need to do is fill the trays with the whitening gel, wear them for a short period of time daily (over about two weeks), and reap the rewards of a smile that’s multiple shades brighter!
Is excess gum tissue covering your smile? Does it look uneven or make your teeth appear short? Gum recontouring is a simple way to sculpt the gums and make your smile look more even. To do this, we use a soft tissue laser for ease, convenience, and comfort.
In some cases, excess gum tissue can interfere with the placement of a crown, veneer, or other restoration. In this instance, crown lengthening is an ideal treatment option, even if the tooth is broken or worn down.
