Healthy smile creates an unforgettable first impression and a lasting expression of who you are. Improve your smile and change your life with modern dental procedures.
Cosmetic dentistry is a discipline within dentistry for the modification of cosmetic appearance of a patient’s oral cavity and surrounding structures. The goal of Cosmetic Dentistry is to alter a patient’s mouth in order to more closely represent the patient’s subjective concept of what is visually pleasing. This alteration works in conjunction with the prevention and treatment of oral disease.
The ultimate goal of cosmetic dentistry is to enhance your smile.
Following are some of the cosmetic procedures we perform to create a pleasing smile.
Teeth whitening or bleaching is the most common cosmetic procedure our patients ask for.
We provide both in office and take home whitening options for our patients. Our Opalescence whitening systems give you the following benefits:
- Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride), which helps maintain the health of enamel throughout the whitening process.
- Formulated to prevent dehydration and shade relapse
- Opalescence Go take-home whitening comes in 6%, 10%, and 15% Hydrogen Peroxide concentration and with mint, melon or peach flavor.
- Opalescence PF take-home whitening comes in 10%, 15%, or 35% Carbamide Peroxide concentration and with mint, melon or regular flavor.
For more drastic shade changes, we recommend our in office whitening services. Our doctors can safely administer ahigher concentration of the whitening gel without damaging your enamel or injuring your soft tissues.
Composite Bonding –
Repair broken or worn teeth with Composite Bonding. This is a process in which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface. The composite is then sculpted into shape, bonded, cured, and then polished. We have successfully performed this procedure to restore chipped teeth, cracked teeth and even to close spacing between teeth. We’ve had great success using this relatively conservative technique as an alternative to a full crown restoration.
A Veneer is an ultra-thin, custom made laminate that is bonded directly to the teeth. It is a very good option for closing gaps or disguising significantly discolored teeth that did not respond well to whitening procedures. It can also be used to mask minor rotations of teeth for an aesthetic, straight smile.
Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
The position of the gums where they meet the teeth is incredibly important for the aesthetics and health of your teeth. If your teeth look too short, there may be more gum tissue covering the tooth surface than what is considered ideal or aesthetic.
If you show too much gum tissue when you smile or if your teeth look real short, an Aesthetic Crown Exposure Surgery is can be performed to correct this problem. In order to reduce the gum tissues, Bone around the teeth may be reduced and reshaped to a proper level to expose for of the visible crown.
