Porcelain Veneers

Whether you’re dealing with noticeable stains, chips, cracks, gaps, or all of the above, porcelain veneers can make each of these flaws disappear at the same time behind perfectly white enamel. Eggshell-thin ceramic restorations are bonded to the front of the teeth, literally acting like permanent masks to improve their appearance and strengthen them at the same time. You can get just one or an entire set to transform your smile, and the procedure only takes two easy appointments.

Lumineers

Lumineers involve placing thin ceramic coverings over the front of the teeth just like porcelain veneers, but there is one major difference: Lumineers go onto the teeth as is. With veneers, a small amount of enamel has to be removed in order for them to lay flat and look natural, but Lumineers are so thin that this step isn’t necessary. This means they are an excellent way to enhance your smile without your natural teeth needing to be altered in the slightest. With them, should you ever want to go back to your regular smile, you always can.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Today, dental crowns can be made of not only gold and silver but more natural-looking materials like porcelain as well. With it, our team can create a restoration that completely mimics the look and feel of real enamel down to the finest detail, including how it reflects light. Once in place, these restorations can seamlessly blend into any smile. And, they don’t just look great, but are strong enough to stand up to regular chewing forces as well.

Dental Bonding

Do you have one minor imperfection in your smile you wish would just go away, like a small stain, gap, or chip? If so, direct bonding can act as a virtual eraser to quickly turn the problem into a distant memory. Your dentist will apply a composite resin that has been colored to match your enamel to your tooth, and they’ll literally sculpt it to hide the offending flaw. After curing the resin with a special light, your tooth will look completely new and perfect. From beginning to end, the procedure only takes about an hour, but the results can easily last for about 10 years.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Gum Recontouring/Crown Lengthening

Whenever you smile, does more gum line show than teeth? This is called a “crowded smile,” and it’s a common flaw that can make the teeth appear too short in relation to the face. Thankfully, we can quickly correct this issue with a soft tissue laser in just one appointment. It allows us to precisely and painlessly remove excess gum tissue to reveal previously hidden enamel, instantly making the teeth appear longer and the smile better proportioned.

Is it possible for cosmetic dentistry to improve my oral health?

Whether it is stains, chips, cracks, or a misaligned bite, cosmetic dentistry is capable of not only improving the look of your smile but its health, too! When imperfections exist within your mouth, it can lead to serious oral health problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. By opting for porcelain veneers, dental bonding, teeth whitening, or even gum recontouring, your investment will pay off in more ways than one.

How can I make my teeth whitening results last?

When choosing to whiten your smile using in-office treatment or at-home whitening kits, the results will only last depending on how well you take care of your teeth. To ensure your results last, here are a few useful tips:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes and flossing at least once a day.
  • Rinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash.
  • Avoiding stain-causing foods and beverages.
  • Avoiding tobacco products or smoking.
  • See your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings every six months.

Will gum recontouring hurt?

Although it might sound painful, the process for shaping and sculpting your gum line is much easier, quicker, and painless than before. Our team of dentists use a soft tissue laser to remove excess gum tissue in just one appointment. Using this type of technology, the laser cauterizes the tissue, reducing the amount of bleeding and lessening the recovery time.

Why would I need a smile makeover?
