What is the first thing you notice in a person’s smile?

You see the sparkle of their personality and inner happiness… AND you notice the straightness and “whiteness” of their teeth. With porcelain veneers, crowns, and bridges, you can enhance your smile in a relatively short amount of time, achieving the beautiful smile you desire.

Our cosmetic dentistry services cover a wide range of services. We will work with you to solve issues you may have with the appearance of your teeth and the way they affect your mouth and smile.  We have techniques and services that will fill gaps, fix broken and crooked teeth, or create a whiter smile for you.  We also provide payment options that fit even limited budgets.

Our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Veneers

Veneers, also called “porcelain veneers”, are very thin shells of porcelain ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile, particularly if the teeth are significantly discolored, chipped, or undesirably shaped or angled.

Placing custom veneers demands a great degree of technical skill and attention to esthetic detail.  Each veneer is individually designed to match and enhance the unique characteristics of each patient’s smile.

A thin covering of porcelain is custom fabricated and fitted over the visible front surface of the teeth. When permanently bonded to the teeth, the veneers are nearly undetectable and are highly resistant to tea, coffee, or even cigarette stains.

For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.  Veneers create a perfectly shaped, naturally beautiful smile!

Teeth Whitening

Having a whiter smile may be easier than you think! Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with a simple “bleaching” procedure. It’s safe, quick, and can be inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth.

Whitening your teeth may be performed in one of two ways:

In-office whitening:  In-office professional teeth whitening is the most effective way to whiten your teeth.  Once your teeth are dried and isolated, a whitening gel is then applied to your teeth which is activated with a light.  This procedure is repeated two more times totaling about 45 minutes of treatment.  After your visit you are provided with take-home trays for occasional touch-ups so your teeth always remain whiter than they were before Zoom!

Home application: Impressions are made of your teeth and custom whitening trays are made that fit you perfectly.  In just a few days your whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear trays. With only a few hours of wear per day, the special whitening agent bleaches stains out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way.

Once your teeth reach the desired brightness with either application, only occasional reapplication of the whitening agent is needed to maintain your new smile.  With any whitening procedure it is recommended that you have a dental cleaning beforehand to remove any existing dental plaque or tartar that can affect your results. Any existing dental needs should also be treated before undergoing your teeth whitening treatment.

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth.  In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, however, crowns or veneers may be the best choice.

If you wish to improve your smile, but don’t want a mouth full of braces, ClearCorrect orthodontics may be the treatment for you. ClearCorrect uses orthodontic principles in conjunction with computer aided technology to improve your smile without using metal.

Instead of brackets and wires, like traditional orthodontics, ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, removable trays to move your teeth into the ideal position.  These aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Since the aligners are clear, they are virtually undetectable when worn. Also, because the aligners are removable, you can maintain better oral hygiene than with metal braces which limit your ability to brush and floss your teeth properly.

Because not everyone is a candidate for clear aligner therapy, case selection is very important.  Ask us for a screening and we’ll determine when we can begin improving your smile!

The bottom line: We’re good listeners. We care. We’re great at what we do.
