Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that improve the appearance of your smile rather than focusing on its functionality. These are also known as "aesthetic" procedures.
Porcelain veneer treatment is a procedure that can fix many cosmetic issues, such as tooth discoloration and staining, cracked or chipped teeth, uneven or misshapen teeth, minor misalignment, and other issues with your smile's appearance. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that fit over the front of a tooth to conceal imperfections and create a more pleasing look overall. The porcelain material closely mimics the reflective properties of a natural tooth. Once in place, the teeth appear straighter, whiter, and more uniform in shape. In fact, these thin shells are placed directly over the tooth without requiring any natural enamel to be removed first. This makes porcelain veneers an ideal solution for many people whose smiles suffer from a variety of aesthetic problems but who may not otherwise have a suitable candidacy for dental crowns.
Dental implants are one of the ideal options for replacing missing teeth. They can replace one tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch of missing teeth. While dental implants function as natural teeth, they look just like your natural smile! Dental implants can restore full function to your mouth and prevent bone loss from occurring. When cared for properly with consistent brushing and flossing and regular dental exams and cleanings, they can last a lifetime. If you are missing one or several teeth and are looking for a solution that looks completely natural and will last a lifetime, consider dental implants. We are happy to help you achieve your best smile with our cosmetic dentistry services.
We all want to have a bright and beautiful smile. The key to achieving this is through professional teeth whitening at our dentist's office. This treatment can remove years of stains, giving you a younger and brighter smile.
At your appointment, the dentist will apply a whitening gel to the surfaces of your teeth. Then, a special light or laser will be used to activate the gel's ingredients, which break up stains and brighten your smile. In most cases, you'll see results immediately. Depending on the severity of your stains and how many treatments you need, you may need to touch up your smile at home with take-home whitening kits for a week or two. By choosing professional teeth whitening over a kit you can use at home, you can benefit from more effective results and protection for your teeth and gums.
If misaligned teeth are making your smile look less than perfect, you can straighten them discreetly using clear aligners from your dentist's office. We are a certified provider of Invisalign and have helped many patients achieve a straighter smile using this comfortable and convenient orthodontic alternative.
