Dental Excellence That You Can See
Cosmetic dentistry can be as simple as teeth whitening to more complex treatments involving the use of ceramics. The goal of any treatment is for it to have a long lasting and natural appearance. There are many different cosmetic dental procedures to restore the health, beauty, and function to your smile.
Make Your Smile Beautiful with Porcelain Veneers
If you have chipped teeth, worn teeth, yellow teeth, misshapen teeth, old bondings, porcelain veneers may be the best way to improve the appearance of your smile. Unlike dental crowns, veneers are thin ceramic shells that are bonded to the front of the tooth. This allows the doctor to be very conservative on tooth preparation. Veneers are a permanent restoration, and with proper care and maintenance, are designed to last many years. They are highly stain resistant, so your smile can stay beautiful.
The most important step in restoring your smile with porcelain veneers is the consultation and treatment planning. The doctor will spend time with you to discuss your treatment goals and expectations. A digital scan is taken of your teeth along with detailed photographs. This information is studied closely and a mock up of the proposed results can be reviewed with you. This also serves as a “blueprint” of your mouth.
For treatment, once patient and doctor have approved, the teeth are prepared. Information is gathered for the dental laboratory. Temporary veneers are fabricated that day that resemble the mock up. These are closely checked and evaluated for function and esthetics. The final restorations are returned in a couple of weeks and permanently bonded on your teeth.

Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, is an affordable way to make your teeth whiter in a short amount of time. This process is easily done from the privacy of your home.

Once the trays are made, we provide professional quality bleaching gel to place in your trays and wear for 15-45 minutes per day for about 7 days. This whitening method is preferred due to convenience and cost. It also has very little risk of any discomfort or sensitivity.
