Our cosmetic dental treatments improve the look and health of the smile:
Clear Invisalign aligners gradually straighten misaligned and crooked teeth over time. Invisalign uses a series of aligners that are switched out every few weeks. Each set is slightly different as it shifts the teeth into a straighter position. The Invisalign aligners are clear and discreet. Patients can also remove their aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Because of this, Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces.
Dental veneers are porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the front of teeth. With dental veneers, we can cover small gaps between the teeth, slightly crooked teeth, stained teeth, and damaged teeth. Porcelain ceramic veneers can be used on multiple teeth to create a bright, straight smile.
Dental bonding treatment uses malleable material that is sculpted and bonded onto teeth. This tooth-colored composite resin can cover cosmetic imperfections, including chips, fractures, stains, and gaps in the teeth. When the bonding material is cured, it easily blends in with the color of the natural tooth enamel.
We can treat years of tooth stains with in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening treatment. Zoom! and KöR are effective treatments that use high-quality active ingredients that penetrate stains in the tooth enamel. With professional teeth whitening treatment, patients can brighten their smiles by multiple shades.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Discover more about cosmetic dental care with answers to these common questions:
What are the differences between porcelain veneers and dental bonding treatment?
Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain ceramic shells that cover the front of the teeth. Dental bonding uses material that is sculpted and cured onto the tooth enamel. Veneers last longer than bonding treatment, though tooth bonding is a more economical option for smaller cosmetic needs.
Can I whiten my smile if I have sensitive teeth?
Yes, our professional teeth whitening treatments are formulated with tooth sensitivity in mind. However, if you have highly sensitive teeth, we may recommend dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns. These cosmetic and restorative options cover areas of discoloration with tooth-colored materials.
Why should I straighten my crooked teeth?
Crooked teeth are not solely an aesthetic problem. Because it can be hard to clean between misaligned teeth, bacteria easily build up in hard-to-reach spaces. Over time, this bacteria can cause problems like cavities and periodontitis. Crooked teeth also create an uneven bite, which is a contributing factor to TMJ disorders. This is because they put pressure on some teeth more than others, which can put stress on the TMJ.
Are porcelain veneers or bonding treatment painful?
No, although patients may feel soreness following their treatment, they will not feel pain during the veneer or bonding process. Some patients may think that preparing their teeth for bonding or veneers may be painful. However, they will not feel any pain during treatment.
