Cosmetic Dentistry Options
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that involves removing stains and discoloration from the teeth, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile. This procedure can be performed in a dental office or at home using over-the-counter whitening products.
Teeth become stained or discolored for a variety of reasons, including consuming certain foods or drinks, smoking, aging, and poor oral hygiene. Teeth whitening treatments use a bleaching agent like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to break down the stains and whiten the teeth. The procedure is safe and effective, and can provide dramatic results in as little as one treatment.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth to improve their shape, size, and color. They can transform the appearance of your smile by correcting a variety of cosmetic issues, including chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration.
The veneers process involves two appointments. During the first appointment, the dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and taking impressions. The impressions will guide the creation of your veneers in a dental laboratory. Once the veneers are ready, the dentist will bond them to the teeth using a special dental-grade adhesive. Porcelain veneers are durable, long-lasting, and can provide a natural-looking, beautiful smile.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a tooth-colored resin material to improve the appearance of your teeth. Bonding can repair chips, cracks, or gaps in your teeth, as well as cover stains or discoloration.
The bonding material is applied to the surface of the tooth and shaped to match the natural contours of your teeth. An experienced member of our dental team will then harden it using a special curing light, which bonds the material to the tooth. The procedure typically takes less than an hour and can provide immediate results. Bonding is a less invasive, more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers and can be a great option for patients with minor cosmetic issues. Our personalized bonding material is durable and can last for several years with proper care.
