The Importance of A Confident Smile
When you leave our office, we want you to feel great about the appearance of your smile. Good self-esteem affects both your personal and professional life. We want to ensure that your smile is not holding you back from being your best self. Whether you are interested in achieving brighter, whiter teeth, or if you desire straighter, more-aligned teeth, we can help you with all of your cosmetic concerns. Our cosmetic dentistry services include:
Many common foods and drinks are known to stain your teeth. Additionally, discoloration occurs naturally over time and with age. Fortunately, our doctors provide teeth whitening solutions to assist our patients who are looking to fix this problem. If you feel that your teeth are yellow and dull, we recommend our teeth whitening procedure. Our procedures involve utilizing a specialized teeth whitening gel that removes the stains on your teeth and restores them to a bright, white appearance in no time.
Porcelain veneers are thin prosthetic shells that our doctors apply to the front of your teeth. These can be used to cover up a variety of cosmetic issues, including discoloration, irregular shape, chips, or other various tooth damages. Our porcelain veneers blend in seamlessly with your smile. In order for the veneer to fit comfortably, a small amount of enamel is shaved off to make room for the porcelain veneer, though this is a minimally invasive procedure that gives you a complete smile makeover.
Our tooth bonding procedure involves using a tooth-colored resin to fill in any chips, gaps, or cosmetic blemishes in your teeth. This resin is sculpted into the exact shape needed to make your tooth look as good as new. Patients love our tooth bonding services because it is a fast and painless procedure that provides extensive cosmetic benefits.
Invisalign & Clear Braces
If your smile isn’t as straight as you want it to be, we are happy to offer orthodontic solutions. Patients love our Invisalign and clear braces solutions because they help them avoid the metallic look of traditional braces. Invisalign is the use of clear retainers to slowly shift your teeth into a straighter position over time. This process involves a set of 12-42 retainers depending on the initial condition of your smile. Clear braces can be used for patients who need more extensive orthodontic care but also desire to keep the original aesthetics of their smiles.
