It’s true that some cosmetic imperfections can require more complex solutions, but often times the answer is actually quite simple. With porcelain veneers, you can easily hide issues with a thin shell of dental ceramic placed on top of your teeth. This makes it easy to hide multiple issues simultaneously, meaning there’s no need to complete several treatments across multiple appointments! Furthermore, porcelain veneers are carefully shaded so they effectively match your neighboring teeth and blend in seamlessly.
For decades, dental crowns were exclusively made from metal materials thanks to their strength and long-term durability. However, metal used for dental crowns tends to be dark gray, meaning it stands out significantly on top of and next to white teeth. Thankfully, it’s easy to get crowns made from metal-free porcelain. Our restorations are fully customized to match existing teeth, yet strong enough to stand up to biting, chewing and many years of at-home brushing and flossing with ease!
It doesn’t matter if your smile has even minor imperfections, as these can just as easily make you feel discouraged to smile. With direct bonding, you can quickly fix minor issues with our dentists’ expertise and a putty-like substance known as composite resin. Once color-matched to mimic your existing enamel and placed directly onto your teeth, we can hide permanent stains, chips, and other common cosmetic issues. After we’ve made these adjustments, we’ll apply a special curing light to the resin to harden it instantly, which only takes minutes.
While we all want a beautiful smile we’re proud to show, most over-the-counter whitening products do not deliver the results they promise. This is largely because the stains present in your teeth are often deeper than your surface-level enamel, which store-bought solutions can’t reach. To remove them, you’ll want to call a professional. Call our dental office to learn about our in-house and take-home whitening procedures, both of which can whiten your smile several shades. The option you choose will be determined based on how long you’d like treatment to take and where you’d like to complete it.
The gums are responsible for keeping teeth stable, not being more noticeable than them. When you have excessive gum tissue, your teeth can appear shorter than usual or “gummy” as some patients tend to call it. With gum recontouring, we can reshape the gums and highlight more of your natural teeth underneath. This restores balance to your smile and even allows for more room should you need to have a restoration placed. In that instance, it’s usually called “crown lengthening” and makes it easier to place crowns and bridges without gum tissue getting in the way.
There’s no need to use your imagination if you want to know what your future smile could look like following a cosmetic treatment at our dental office. By taking a current photo of your smile, then using a unique software to alter the image, we can simulate what your smile looks like following veneers, teeth whitening, or any other treatment! It’s a great way to set expectations for your future procedure. We’ll even let you bring it home to use as a reference should you need additional time to confirm if treatment is right for you.
