Teeth whitening is one of the most simple and least expensive procedures in cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening can restore the whiteness to natural tooth enamel to give you a more youthful smile. We have several different systems available for professional teeth whitening, so we are able to customize your treatment to your goals and lifestyle.
Using custom made trays and bleaching gel, the home tooth whitening systems have proven to be very effective in most situations. The at-home system usually takes about 10 days to 2 weeks and can dramatically whiten the color of your tooth enamel. Simple maintenance involves one home tooth whitening treatment a couple times a year to keep your teeth their brightest.
We also offer an in-office tooth whitening procedure which involves the use of a special light activated solution to accelerate the whitening process. We still recommend you follow the in-office session with some at-home whitening treatments for the best results. Many people prefer this method as a great way to whiten their teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers both use enamel recontouring also called Enamelplasty, to quickly give uneven teeth a more harmonious, even appearance. Enamel recontouring involves removing small amounts of enamel from different areas of the teeth in order to improve their shape and overall appearance by rounding off sharp points and smoothing irregular edges.
In instances where teeth are worn, irregularly shaped, or appear too small, dental bonding can be used to restore a more balanced appearance. By applying composite resin, your dentist can also fill small chips and gaps, and conceal minor cases of misalignment. Bonding is a quick and cost-effective way to brighten your smile.
The gum tissue plays an important role in the overall appearance of your smile. If you show a lot of gum tissue when you smile, or if your tissue heights are uneven, we can recontour the heights of the gums, helping the teeth appear taller and more symmetrical. Using the latest technology, we utilize a soft tissue laser which removes the excess tissue painlessly.
A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain, which is custom made to adhere to the front of natural teeth, thus enhancing the appearance and beauty of your smile. Skillfully designed porcelain veneers can remove many types of compromises in the smile, including misalignment, spaces, dark colors, chipped or worn teeth, and improper length.
Cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers use full porcelain crowns when the strength as well as esthetics are needed. Unlike porcelain veneers, which only cover the front, sides and chewing edge of the teeth, full porcelain crowns cover the entire surface of the teeth. Porcelain crowns restore the natural beauty and appearance of your smile.
