Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment; simple, easy, and straightforward, the service is capable of lifting stubborn stains and cohesively brightening your smile. While you may be tempted by many whitening products in stores, these products are abrasive and can wear away the enamel on your teeth. This leads to increased teeth sensitivity, gum recession, and an increased vulnerability to decay. To make matters worse, they fail to effectively whiten your smile.
Our office offers many options for teeth whitening that are gentle and dependable with no harsh side effects. These products are only available from dental professionals and provide predictable, even, and drastic results. When you visit us, you can choose between the following:
- Opalescence GO Trays
- Opalescence Whitening Toothpaste (regular or sensitive)
- Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gel
- Custom Whitening Trays
Veneers go a step beyond improving the shade of your teeth and are also capable of changing their shape, size, and overall appearance. This cosmetic option is adhered to the surface of each tooth, concealing discoloration, stains, chips, or gaps in your smile. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain, resistant to staining, and durable enough to handle the everyday function of your teeth.
The application process for veneers takes only two office visits but requires patients to have the thin layer of enamel removed from the surface of their teeth. This allows for the veneers to appear seamless on the tooth’s surface while feeling natural and comfortable.
- Patients who are interested in veneers must be prepared to continue wearing them permanently once this procedure is completed; enamel cannot regenerate once it is removed, so the tooth surface must depend on veneers for protection against decay and sensitivity.
If well cared for by regular brushing and flossing, veneers can last for up to 15 years. We will monitor them at each appointment and notify you when they may need to be replaced or repaired.
Crowns are most often used in cases of extreme damage to the tooth or decay, but they can also be used for cosmetics. If you have a tooth that doesn’t blend well with neighboring teeth and looks less than ideal, call us to set up an appointment for a dental crown!
Crowning procedures will require the tooth to be prepared.
- We will sculpt the tooth to make it a bit smaller so that the crown can fit properly.
- Following the creation and approval of the crown, it will be attached to the prepared tooth with dental cement.
If you have a gap in your smile and are seeking a great replacement option, implants could be the solution for you! Implants are able to replace the entire natural tooth structure, including the roots. Replacing the roots of a missing tooth prevents the deterioration of the jaw bone; jaw bone deterioration can cause sagging skin and changes to the entire facial aesthetic.
With dental implants, the restoration will prevent additional changes in your appearance while providing a dependable, functional new tooth. The implant is composed of three separate components:
- The implant post – embedded in the jawbone to replace the tooth root
- The abutment – connector piece used to secure the post to the crown
- The crown – custom made restoration that replaces function and appearance of natural tooth
