Does Your Smile Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

We use cosmetic dentistry to help patients enjoy more beautiful smiles. From discoloration to issues with the shape of your teeth, we can offer solutions in the form of teeth whitening, dental bonding, and lifelike custom-made veneers. Does your smile need cosmetic dentistry?

Teeth Whitening

We can use professional teeth whitening to remove stains for your teeth. We have an in-office procedure that can lift stains from your smile in about one to two hours. We apply a bleaching gel to the teeth, which is activated using a curing light. We can also address more substantial stains with an at-home whitening option. We send patients home with a set of trays and a bleaching gel. The patient fills the trays with gel and wears them for a set amount of time each day, with optimal results being reached after one to two weeks.

Dental Bonding and Contouring

Dental bonding involves applying a composite resin material to the tooth in several layers. The material can be used to repair chipped teeth, close gaps between teeth, and mask permanent teeth stains. We can also address cosmetic issues with dental contouring. We remove a thin layer of enamel by gently buffing the tooth, which removes pits and grooves in the tooth, while also reshaping malformed teeth and dulling pointed teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin restoration made that cover the front and sides of the teeth. The porcelain material ensures the restoration looks natural and blend with the rest of your smile. We can place them to repair minor damage, mask teeth stains, reshape malformed teeth, and lengthen worn down teeth. We can also close gaps between your teeth or even correct the appearance of minor alignment issues.
