Patients today have several options when it comes to improving the look of their smile. Modern materials and procedures have expanded options and lowered the cost of cosmetic dentistry, bringing procedures which used to be prohibitively expensive within reach of everyone.
Whitening is by far the most popular procedure. Our take home bleaching kits are user friendly and very cost effective. The take home kits are used once to twice daily for 10-14 days.
Veneers are thin porcelain layers which are permanently fixed to existing teeth. We can choose the exact color that will either match existing teeth if one tooth is discolored or they can be applied to all teeth for an even white smile.
Composite Fillings are a better choice for filling cavities because they contain no mercury. They can be made to exactly match the existing tooth color and they do a better job of bonding the tooth together. No more mouth full of silver – just beautiful white teeth!
Porcelain Crowns are a good option when a tooth is too decayed to hold fillings. Some teeth with large restorations and craze lines also require extra strength provided by a full coverage crown. Crowns are made to exactly match the existing teeth in both shape and color.
Bridges involve putting crowns on the neighboring teeth and filling the missing tooth space with a porcelain tooth attached to both crowns, forming a “bridge.” Bridges are an alternative to implants when teeth need to be replaced.
Implants are the latest technology. Implants involve removing all of the natural tooth and replacing the root with a specially designed anchor onto which a porcelain crown is attached.
Sealants are a safe, painless, and low-cost way to help protect your child’s molars from decay. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves and pits which can cause cavities.
