The health of our teeth is very important to maintain, but the cosmetic aspect of dentistry is just as important. Our confidence and self esteem can be hindered from our smile if we are not happy with the way our teeth look. In our office we are able to transform your smile to meet your goals through various cosmetic treatments.
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges. When teeth are damaged due to injury or decay, porcelain crowns and bridges can be used to repair them. Crowns slip over the damaged tooth like a jacket. They can restore strength to cracked teeth and cover significant areas of decay. All porcelain crowns can be matched to the original color of the teeth so they look completely natural. Also, now that bridges can be made completely from porcelain the problem of a dark line near the gums is completely eliminated since metal is no longer necessary. In addition to the structural benefits of crowns and bridges, they can also be used for purely cosmetic reasons — to reshape, recolor, or realign a person’s teeth.
Veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Porcelain veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth, and to improve a smile. Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns due the fact that they are more conservative in the change of tooth’s size or shape. Veneers generally last many years when performed properly
Composites (tooth colored fillings). We are now able place fillings that are tooth colored on any of your teeth. These fillings will match the natural color of your teeth and is chemically bonded to your tooth, to protect the remaining structure from breaking, making the tooth resistant to fractures.
Zoom and Home Whitening. Our in office Zoom whitening is one of the most effective tooth whitening systems. Whitening gel is applied and is then treated with a special whitening lamp. We also offer take home whitening trays. We would first take impressions to have the trays made to custom fit your teeth and we would give you four tubes of whitening gel. These tubes should last about 20 applications.
Invisalign. Invisalign is proven technology designed to give you the smile you’ve always wanted, without the use of metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position your doctor has prescribed for you
Lumineers. Lumineers are porcelain veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and aligned smile. Lumineers contact lens-thin “smile shapers” that can be applied without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual.
