Porcelain veneers may be the most versatile cosmetic solution we offer. These thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain are attached to the front facing surfaces of teeth effectively concealing a number of cosmetic flaws including chips, cracks, gaps, misalignment, and other cosmetic flaws. If we determine veneers are the right option, the process is completed over the course of two appointments. During the initial visit to our office, a small amount of surface tooth enamel is removed. This preparation allows the veneers to lay flat within the patients’ smile lines. Next, we’ll take impressions of patients’ prepared teeth that will be used by our dental lab to create the custom veneers. Finally, we’ll place a temporary veneer to protect the prepared teeth, until the final restoration is completed. The patients will return to our office and exchange the temporary for the custom porcelain veneer, and with proper care, they’ll retain a flawless smile for years.
Blurring the line between cosmetic and restorative care, metal-free restorations are an ideal solution to repair dental damage or conceal cosmetic flaws for those patients who wish to achieve natural looking and feeling results. Crafted from a block of dental ceramic, metal-free crowns, bridges, and other restorations repair lost structure and improve the overall appearance of patients’ smiles, following decay, trauma, or to conceal cosmetic irregularities. Patients interested in metal-free restorations should expect the same treatment process as traditional crowns. When we receive this final restoration, patients return to exchange their temporary for the custom-crafted solution and leave our office with flawless smiles.
Getting whiter teeth is a desire of many patients. There are numerous smile brightening products available from local pharmacies and beauty supply stores, and while these strips, gels, and toothpastes promise dramatic transformations, they are typically unable to deliver the promised results. Our professional-grade teeth whitening treatments are more effective than those available over the counter because we’re able to use a more effective dose of active whitening agents and apply the whitener effectively in order to allow the product to remain active for an extended period of time. Most importantly, our skilled dentists and dental hygienists will examine patients’ teeth and create a personalized whitening plan specific to their unique whitening needs.
This is a treatment that reshapes the gums to improve the overall appearance of the smile line by exposing underlying tooth structures. This treatment may be recommended for those patients who simply want to improve the appearance of a “gummy” smile or for those who need to reveal additional dental structure to support a restoration such as a crown or bridge. We remove the minimum amount of soft tissue while still achieving patients’ goals, and most people achieve full recovery within just a few days.
