Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
Here are some of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments we offer:
Dealing with dull, yellow teeth thanks to years of smoking or coffee drinking? Don’t worry; we can help. Professional in-office teeth whitening can quickly and easily brighten teeth up to five shades or more in about one hour.
Minor chips, cracks, discolorations, and even gaps between teeth can be covered with the same tooth-colored material that we use to fill a tooth. This composite resin is matched to the shade of your tooth and then placed, shaped, and then hardened in place with a dental laser. The process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the tooth that’s being treated.
If you are dealing with more moderate cosmetic flaws that bonding or teeth whitening can’t handle, then we may recommend getting veneers. After all, these thin porcelain shells are able to completely transform a smile when they are bonded to the front of your teeth. They can even give you a straighter smile without needing braces.
Lost a permanent tooth? Why not choose the next best thing to a real tooth. An implant is a metal post that acts just like natural tooth roots and is surgically placed into the jawbone to become a permanent foundation from which to support a false tooth. Implants can last the rest of your life with the proper care and maintenance.
