SMILE MAKEOVERS & FULL MOUTH REHABILITATION

Porcelain veneers provide an effective and minimally invasive method to improve your smile. Using extremely thin pieces of porcelain that are fabricated at a select dental laboratory, you can predictably change the shape and color of your teeth without the need to remove/ prepare a large amount of your natural tooth. Veneers are often used to provide a makeover and can provide immediate cosmetic results and enhancements to one’s smile. Porcelain veneers bond directly to the facial (outside) tooth surface using extremely strong cements. Once bonded, it becomes very strong and resistant to chipping and cracking. Veneers can last a very long time especially when cared for with regular hygiene appointments, proper flossing and bushing, and regular check-ups with your dentist. Porcelain veneers are considered a minimally invasive procedure that can correct multiple flaws on a tooth as well as can help restore strength and functionality. The process can be relatively quick and only require a few appointments to complete.

TEETH WHITENING

Tooth bleaching has become popular amongst all our patients that want a whiter smile. A whiter and brighter smile can improve your self-esteem. Tooth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that can lighten the color of your natural teeth. There are two types of professional bleaching techniques: take home teeth whitening trays and chair-side (in-office) bleaching. Both are convenient, effective and safe methods to lighten your teeth. We usually use both to get the most ideal result. For more information on teeth whitening click here .

DENTAL BONDING

An alternative treatment choice (instead of porcelain veneers) involves dental bonding using a composite tooth color material. These restorations can provide an esthetic final result but oftentimes do not last as long and could also collect staining with heavy coffee and cigarette/cigar smoking. This however can be an alternative for our patients that are not quite ready to commit to porcelain veneers.
