Veneers

Sometimes all it takes is one cosmetic treatment to take care of all the imperfections in your smile. Are there numerous stains, cracks, and gaps bothering you whenever you look in the mirror? Veneers can cover them all up at once. These thin sheaths are typically made from porcelain; not only can they very convincingly mimic your natural teeth, but they also don’t stain very easily. We highly recommend veneers for anyone who has been considering making extensive changes to their smile.

Metal-Free Restorations

A reliable dental crown doesn’t have to be made of metal. Today there are plenty of tooth-colored options for making fillings and crowns that match the rest of your smile. You can keep your tooth safe with a quality restoration while also avoiding the embarrassment of having a dark-colored spot on your teeth. Metal-free restorations are usually recommended for the highly visible teeth, but they can be used for other teeth as well.

Cosmetic Bonding

Even if the flaws in your smile aren’t extensive enough to warrant veneers, a little touchup can make a big difference. This process involves a composite resin made of materials that match the color of your teeth. It blends in with the teeth perfectly once it has been properly molded. A small amount of composite resin can hide minor chips and small stains; it can even be used to fill in gaps and correct the overall shape of the tooth.

Teeth Whitening

The color of your teeth is partially determined by genetics, but it can become progressively darker over the years due to tobacco use, frequent exposure to coffee and other darkly pigmented beverages, and even certain medications. We can examine your teeth to determine the cause of discoloration; oftentimes, we can make your smile whiter by several shades with professional bleaching materials that are significantly more effective than over the counter whitening products.

Gum Recontouring

Gum recontouring is the process of reshaping the gumline so that it frames the teeth in a more attractive way. Sometimes there’s too much gum tissue in your mouth, making the teeth look unusually small; there may also be cases where the gumline is uneven and thus makes the smile look imbalanced. With gum recontouring, we can address these issues so that your gums contribute to your beautiful smile instead of getting in the way.

Smile Makeovers

While any one of our cosmetic treatments can dramatically transform your smile, sometimes getting the results you want takes more than one step. When you visit our office for a cosmetic consultation to discuss your smile goals, we may find that multiple treatments will be needed to address your needs. A smile makeover is a completely personalized process – each and every recommendation that we make for it will reflect your unique grin and your own needs.
