How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help You

Whiten your teeth: Professional whitening treatments can remove stains and lighten the shade of your teeth more safely than do-it-yourself kits. Our dentists can help you get your teeth to the shade you want while avoiding painful complications or uneven results.

Cover unsightly teeth: Veneers are created from composite or porcelain material in your desired shade of white, shaped to your preference, and bonded to the natural teeth to immediately improve their appearance. Veneers are often used to cover crooked, stained, decayed, gapped, or chipped teeth.

Straighten crooked teeth: Orthodontic solutions can help straighten crowded teeth or close gaps. Options include traditional braces or Invisalign, a treatment that uses clear trays to shift the teeth without the use of visible metal brackets. Depending on your needs, alternative treatments such as veneers or bonding may be an option to make your teeth appear straight more quickly.

Change the shape of your teeth: Cosmetic contouring removes small amounts of enamel, while bonding adds tooth-colored material to your natural teeth. Both approaches are used to make slight alterations in the shape of your teeth, and help reduce the appearance of jagged edges or teeth that are slightly chipped or crooked.

Restore decayed or missing teeth: Crowns fabricated from tooth-colored porcelain can be placed over severely decayed teeth after treatment. If you have missing teeth, implants or dentures can restore your smile and help you take pride in your appearance once again.
