Ever wonder how your favorite celebrity got such a perfect smile? In most cases, it’s because they have porcelain veneers! This treatment involves applying ultra-thin ceramic coverings to the front of the teeth to change their shape, size, color, and spacing to whatever a patient wants. We can use them to create your ideal look in just two appointments, and after that, they can be trusted to last for about 20 years.
When you come to see us to have a tooth repaired, we won’t simply give you a silver crown that instantly sticks out in your smile. Instead, our crowns are made of white dental porcelain, meaning they are extremely strong, but they are also extremely lifelike in appearance. We can even adjust the shade of the porcelain so it perfectly blends with the rest of your teeth. Basically, this treatment offers the best when it comes to both cosmetic and restorative dentistry!
If you have an hour, then that’s plenty of time to cover a minor chip, stain, or gap in your smile. We can apply a composite resin to your flawed tooth to build up the enamel, and then we can literally sculpt it to perfection, hiding any issue. After you approve the final look, the resin will be hardened with a curing light, and that’s it! In the time it takes for your average lunch break, you can give yourself a smile you’re always ready to show off.
Whether in our dental office or at home, we can give you a smile that’s six to eight shades brighter, making stains caused by coffee, wine, and tobacco disappear. Zoom! Whitening utilizes a bleaching gel much stronger than anything you’ll find in stores, and when used by our team, we’re able to maximize a patient’s results and ensure their new shade endures for several months. We can even send you home with a special kit so you can provide your own touch-ups when needed.
Sometimes, what’s holding back a smile has nothing to do with the teeth, but rather the gums. An overly prominent gum line can cause the teeth to look small and short in proportion to the face, making for a less than attractive look. With our soft tissue laser, however, we can quickly and painlessly remove excess tissue to help the teeth appear longer and fuller. We can then top the newly exposed teeth with crowns or veneers to create a perfectly balanced, stunning smile.
Want to see what you’ll look like after getting teeth whitening or porcelain veneers before actually undergoing the treatment? We can digitally edit a picture of your smile to show you! Virtual Smile Design allows you to create your ideal look right alongside your dentist, and once you like what you see in the simulated “after” image, we can get to work turning it into a reality. This way, you’ll already know you’ll love what you’ll see in the mirror.
