Veneers

When there are multiple things you want to fix about your smile – such as noticeable chips, stubborn stains, and small gaps – you might expect to need multiple visits to fix them all. But thanks to veneers, which are ultra-thin sheaths of porcelain material that can completely cover the fronts of your teeth, it is possible to make multiple corrections at once. That means you can completely transform your smile in as little as two appointments!

Metal-Free Crowns

When you hear the term “dental crown,” do you picture a tooth-shaped cap made out of gold or another metal? While that used to be the standard, today there are plenty of options for making crowns out of tooth-colored materials. Metal-free crowns let you enjoy the benefits of a natural-looking restoration that blends in with the rest of your smile while still offering the same kind of durability that you would expect from a traditional metal crown.  

Cosmetic Bonding

When you just want to make a small change to your smile, you don’t have to get veneers; instead, you can choose cosmetic bonding as a quicker, more affordable option. A small amount of composite resin is applied to your teeth to cover up discolored spots and other minor flaws. This is usually ideal if there are just one or two teeth that you want to make improvements to, as the procedure can be completed in just one visit.

Teeth Whitening

Repeated exposure to coffee and other dark-colored beverages can cause your teeth to turn dull and yellowed. Brushing alone won’t get rid of these stains, and store-bought whitening products often aren’t as effective as one might hope. Our practice offers in-house whitening that can brighten your teeth by several shades over the course of just one appointment, letting you achieve the whiter smile you’ve been wanting in a short amount of time!

Gum Recontouring

When you smile, does it seem like there’s too much gum tissue visible? Do some of your teeth seem too small? Saying “yes” to either of these questions could mean you have what’s known as a gummy smile. Fortunately, it’s easier than you might think to fix the problem. With gum recontouring, we can remove the excess tissue from your mouth, reshaping the gumline and making your teeth all appear to be the correct size. Once the treatments are done, you’ll be able to enjoy a newly balanced smile.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Straighter teeth help you make a powerful first impression and are better for your oral health overall. If the idea of wearing braces doesn’t appeal to you, we can offer Invisalign® as an alternative way to correct your alignment issues. You simply wear a series of clear aligners that will gradually push your teeth toward their new positions. During this time, you’ll be able to smile with confidence and enjoy all of your favorite foods thanks to your clear, removable aligners.
