How Many Ways Can You Improve Your Smile?

These days, more people than ever are discovering the joys of a beautiful smile thanks to advanced cosmetic dental procedures. Regardless of the severity of your smile’s blemishes, there is likely a cosmetic solution that will not only improve your smile, but do so in a conservative, minimally-invasive manner. From erasing teeth stains in a single office visit to planning and implementing a comprehensive smile makeover plan, our wide range of cosmetic dental services can help you achieve the smile you want.

Professional Teeth Whitening

A lifetime of use, coupled with habits like smoking or drinking coffee, can cause anyone’s teeth to stain eventually. While over-the-counter (OTC) whiteners are numerous, they are not usually effective at erasing stains, though they can damage your teeth if not used properly. With professional teeth-whitening, you can achieve amazing results with an in-office visit (which usually lasts about an hour) or with a take-home kit you can apply at your own convenience.

Tooth Bonding & Contouring

Tooth bonding and contouring describes reshaping a tooth by bonding and sculpting tooth-colored resin to the tooth (bonding) and/or slightly sculpting the tooth’s outer layers of enamel (contouring). Bonding and contouring focus on making minimal tooth changes that have a significant effect on your smile’s appearance.

Laser Gum Contouring

Like tooth contouring, gum contouring is a reshaping procedure. If your gum line is uneven, it can make your smile appear crooked, even though your teeth are straight. Using a soft-tissue laser, we can trim away excessive gum tissue and create a more symmetrical frame for your smile. The laser eliminates the need for traditional gum contouring, which may involve scalpels and sutures.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers began as a Hollywood prop for actors and actresses with less-than-appealing dental health. Today, veneers have been fine-tuned for everyday use, creating a near-complete smile makeover in a single treatment. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of lifelike dental ceramic that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth, and are designed to mimic your tooth’s appearance in both color and light-reflecting abilities.
