 Cosmetic Dentistry
 
 
Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.

 

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.

 




 VENEERS

 

Veneers are a dental     procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very aesthetic.

The advantage of veneers is that much less tooth material is removed than when a crown is done, and the procedure is generally more comfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.




WHITENING - including NiteWhite & Opalescence Go Trays!

We offer several methods of whitening:

The tray method involves having impressions and custom vinyl trays made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity.


We also offer Opalescence Go Trays. These trays have gel in them already and automatically form to your teeth when you put them in, so no office visit is required to get started! We sell these at 35% strength, and they should be used for no longer than 20 minutes. 


We also sell Crest Whitening Strips at our office. These are synthetics strips that stick to your teeth. You wear them for no longer than one hour.
