Few people have been blessed with naturally perfect smiles, but that does not mean you have to make peace with the idea of living with stained, chipped or damaged teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you have always wanted. Teeth whitening can remove stains, chipped and rough spots can be smoothed away, teeth can be reshaped, gaps can be closed and other imperfections can be covered or concealed.
Teeth whitening is one of our more popular procedures. In-office whitening can remove stains and leave your teeth up to eight shades whiter. A powerful whitening gel is painted onto your teeth and then is activated using a special light, which sends it into the enamel of the teeth to break up stains and discolorations. The procedure may be repeated several times during an hour-long appointment, and our dentist can provide you with touch-up kits to maintain your newly brightened look.
When teeth are misshapen or out of balance, enamel reshaping may be an appropriate alternative to more invasive procedures. Our dentist will gently remove small portions of enamel in order to eliminate imperfections, contour and sculpt each tooth precisely and artfully. Enamel reshaping can be used alone or with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as bonding, for a dramatically enhanced smile or a smile makeover.
Dental bonding uses tooth-colored materials to repair or enhance a single tooth that is damaged, decayed, chipped, gapped or stained. The procedure can be performed in a single dental visit and is one of the most affordable procedures in cosmetic dentistry today.
Teeth that have suffered from extensive staining, misalignments, chips, gaps or other cosmetic issues may benefit from the application of porcelain veneers, wafer-thin shells of porcelain that can be bonded over the fronts of teeth to brighten, perfect or enhance a smile. Porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years, are durable and are highly stain resistant, which means they can provide you with a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
