  • What makes you feel unhappy when it comes to your teeth?
  • Do you dislike the color of your teeth?
  • Are there spaces between your teeth? If so, how long have they been there?
  • Do any of your teeth have cracks or chips?
  • Are you missing any of your teeth?
  • Are any of your teeth crooked?
  • Are you happy about the positions and shape of your teeth?
  • Do you think your teeth are too long or too short?

Treatment Choices For A New Smile

Due to the advances made in cosmetic dentistry over the past 25 years, there are many choices to pick from when you want to change the look of your teeth. With all the additional procedures and materials available to you, you can have the appealing and natural-looking teeth you’ve always wanted with the help of our office.

If the shape of your teeth bother you, we can change their contour for a more alluring appearance. With our professional bleaching, you can whiten your teeth with ease. Any chips or cracks can easily be repaired with bonding, while veneers can handle gaps, poor shape, and teeth out of alignment. Everything we use in your mouth for repair is made to be match your tooth’s specific shade, so the result matches the rest of your teeth without a problem. If you are worried about the look of braces, we offer less visible or “invisible” options for our clients. We can place braces on the back of your teeth, and in some cases, treatments can be done with clear plastic mouthpiece aligners that can be removed.

With these new options for cosmetic dentistry, you can have natural-looking teeth and the attractive smile you’ve been wishing for.

Our options include:

Veneers: Custom made casings that are designed to cover the front of your tooth. They are made from tooth-colored materials and can be used to cover stained, crooked or misshapen teeth. Veneers can also be used on teeth that are worn or chipped.

Tooth Whitening: A procedure, also called bleaching, that brightens discolored and stained teeth. Whitening can be done on teeth with a root canal treatment or living teeth.

Bonding:  a procedure that adheres tooth-colored materials to a tooth surface to enhance the appearance of chipped, broken, cracked, or stained teeth. The process of bonding can improve stains on teeth from food, drink, or medication, fix front-tooth gaps and cover cracks or chips from accidents. Bonding will typically last three to five years with proper tooth care.

Enamel Shaping: a procedure that shapes or contours natural teeth. This procedure can help when teeth are crowded, uneven, or appear to be too long.

These cosmetic dentistry procedures will help you have more attractive teeth and more confidence in your smile.

Discussing with our dentist which procedure would be best for you and your smile will give you information about what to expect with each procedure, as well as what the intended costs will be.
