You don’t have to suffer with an imperfect smile. Improving the appearance of your teeth is as simple as scheduling a cosmetic dentistry consultation at our practice. At your appointment, we can help you determine the best procedure(s) for your needs. Our practice offers a variety of cosmetic solutions to help you achieve a white, proportionate and vibrant smile. Some of our most popular cosmetic services include professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, cosmetic restorations, and dental implants.

Teeth Whitening

Our teeth are permeable because they are living structures. While their permeability is important for growth and development, it means that our teeth become stained when exposed to dark foods and beverages or tobacco. Many patients try to whiten their teeth with home remedies and over the counter products but these methods only address surface stains and can actually harm one’s teeth. If you desire a brighter, whiter smile, the safest and most effective option is to visit us for a professional treatment. We offer convenient in-office treatments and take-home kits. Professional whitening can dramatically lighten deep, permanent stains without causing long-term tooth sensitivity.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have noticeable smile flaws such as staining, misshapen teeth, and spacing issues, you might benefit from porcelain veneers. This treatment option is favored by celebrities and public figures because it produces a complete smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are razor-thin cosmetic enhancements that are bonded over the front side of teeth. They look incredibly natural and conceal flaws like stains, cracks, chips, and jagged edges. A series of veneers over your most visible teeth can produce a uniformly white and straight smile.

Cosmetic Restorations

Restorations aren’t only used for repairing broken and diseased teeth. When natural looking materials like porcelain and composite resin are used, restorations can look just like biological teeth. If you suffer with worn dentition, cracked or chipped teeth, or intrinsic tooth stains, having dental crowns and tooth-colored fillings placed can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile while strengthening your teeth. When it comes to dental crowns, patients enjoy a very lifelike smile enhancement because these restorations are custom made for each patient.

Dental Implants

Just one missing tooth can greatly affect the aesthetic of a smile. In addition to the oral health threats associated with missing teeth, one’s confidence and emotional wellbeing suffers. Fortunately, there are incredibly durable and lifelike alternatives to natural teeth. Dental implants are one option for addressing tooth loss. These durable prosthetics hold restorations like crowns and bridges and when white materials like porcelain are chosen, these replacement teeth look and feel just like biological teeth. Implants function like the roots of teeth and are embedded into the jawbone. Once stable, a permanent restoration is attached to complete the tooth replacement process. By replacing missing teeth, a person can enjoy the benefits of full oral function and a healthy looking smile.

If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, we can help. From simple whitening treatments to a complete smile makeover, no one has to suffer with a flawed, lackluster smile.

Common Questions

Veneers are cosmetic enhancements. They are made of porcelain and are shaped like teeth. Wafer-thin, a veneer is placed over the outside of a tooth to produce a beautiful aesthetic that doesn’t show signs of staining, chips, cracks, or jagged edges. When multiple veneers are bonded over teeth, it will produce the appearance of a flawless, beautiful smile. Sometimes, receiving porcelain veneers is called “instant orthodontics” because they conceal spacing issues like crowding, gaps, and crooked teeth.

Almost everyone desires a bright, white smile. When it comes to effectiveness and safety, a professional whitening treatment is the best option. Professional whitening treatments include take-home kits and in-office accelerated whitening. These treatments utilize potent, stable bleaching solutions that are only available at dental practices. While the bleaching solutions are very effective, they are formulated to prevent the development of long-term tooth sensitivity. If you are interested in teeth whitening, schedule a consultation with our dentist so that we can help you review your options.

Replacing missing teeth is very important for your emotional wellbeing and your health. Fortunately, our dentist offers effective tooth replacement options to help our patients regain their confidence and improve oral function. Popular prosthetics include bridges, dental implants and implant supported dentures.

Bridges close the gaps of a smile by anchoring a prosthetic between existing biological teeth. A bridge is essentially a series of connected crowns and will replace visible tooth structure above the gums. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or a series of them can hold prosthetics that address the loss of multiple teeth. A single dental implant will hold a crown or bridge to treat minimal tooth loss whereas a few dental implants placed in strategic locations can support a full arch of new teeth (dentures). A dental implant replaces lost structure below the gums, functioning like the roots of teeth.

A crown is common restoration that protects badly injured and damaged teeth. It is shaped like a tooth and custom made. Dental crowns will restore teeth to their rightful size and shape. They can be made from materials like gold and silver, porcelain, and porcelain fused to metal. Obviously, porcelain will look very natural because it is white in color and mimics tooth structure by reflecting light.
