Many of our patients come to us looking for a way to improve the appearance of their smiles. With cosmetic dentistry, we can provide treatment to address many common esthetic imperfections. We can help you enjoy a more attractive and healthy smile with cosmetic dentistry.

5 Treatments for Improving Your Smile

1. Teeth Whitening: We offer two forms of teeth whitening. Our office-based option uses a bleaching gel activated with a curing light to remove discoloration in about an hour. The at-home alternative involves wearing a custom-made whitening tray each day for a specific amount of time. After about two weeks the patient can enjoy a noticeably brighter smile. We can also offer a combination of the two procedures to help you maintain your results and enjoy a brighter smile.

2. Dental Bonding: What if you chip a tooth? We can address damaged teeth in a single visit with dental bonding. This procedure involves applying a composite resin to the teeth, replacing the lost structure, closing gaps between teeth, and masking permanent discoloration or other cosmetic concerns. We cure the material with a light and sculpt the reins, restoring your tooth structure.

3. Dental Contouring: The contouring procedure involves gently removing a small layer of the surface to correct surface issues, such as pits or grooves. We can smooth rough edges or address overly pointed teeth. As with bonding, the procedure can be completed in a single visit.

4. Porcelain Veneers: By placing a thin restoration over the front surface of the tooth we can instantly alter your tooth’s appearance. Made form lifelike and powerful porcelain, veneers can be used to mask teeth stains, reshape worn down or damaged teeth, close gaps between teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor alignment issues.

5. Gum Contouring: If you have a “gummy smile” due to excessive gingival tissue, we can remove the excess tissue and reshape the gum line for a more attractive smile.
