Cosmetic Dentistry

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth colored porcelain facings that bond to the enamel of your natural tooth. They can be used to change the color, size, contour or shape of your tooth. Often used to close spaces between teeth, they have the strength and beauty that only porcelain can achieve and have greater resistance to wear and stain than even natural teeth have.

Bonding

Bonding is a conservative way to improve the appearance of teeth. During this procedure, a white filling is placed on your tooth to repair a slight chip or to change the color of a tooth. The material used bonds to your teeth and comes in a variety of shades to closely match the appearance of your natural teeth. Bonding is a less costly alternative to porcelain veneers, though bonded teeth are more subject to staining and discoloration when compared to porcelain veneers.

Composite Fillings (Tooth Colored Fillings)

For years, you had no choice in the color of your fillings. Now we can provide you with a tooth colored filling that has a very cosmetic appearance when compared to the older amalgam (metal) fillings. The composite fillings allow the dentist to remove less of the tooth structure and because they bond directly to the tooth, they provide a better seal, providing better protection against further decay.

Tooth Whitening (Bleaching)

Tooth whitening is a method used to lighten natural teeth. A bleaching gel is placed over the teeth and over a period of time, the teeth become lighter in color. Compared to most other methods of lightening teeth, bleaching gives you the most “bang for your buck”. It does not affect the color of any man made material like veneers, crowns, fillings, etc. See us to find if you are a good candidate for bleaching!

Clear-Aligner Therapy (Invisible Braces)

Clear aligners are a series of nearly invisible mouth trays that are used to straighten crooked teeth. The trays are removable but are typically worn at all times other than eating and cleansing teeth. Many people refer to these clear aligners as "invisible braces".
