Your smile’s vibrant white color can fade due to staining from dark foods and drinks. As time goes on, your enamel will look darker and darker. A teeth whitening treatment can help brighten your smile in one office visit.
At our office, we use safe and effective whitening gel to remove stubborn stains. Don’t want to have to wait in our office for results? We also offer take-home whitening.
Most patients don’t want or need another appointment. For our busy patients or those who don’t live super close to the office, we offer take-home whitening kits. To get started, you visit our office one time for impressions so we can create your custom whitening tray.
We’ll give you a call once your trays are ready and you can pick them up at your convenience. During your pickup visit, we’ll explain how to use your whitening trays and provide the gel you need.
Modern fillings use composite material to match your fillings to your tooth instead of the old silver amalgam fillings. These tooth-colored fillings are especially important when repairing front teeth to avoid noticeable fillings when you smile. Over time, your fillings might break down and need to be replaced. With proper at-home care and regular visits to your dentist, you can expect composite fillings to last a decade or more.
Porcelain veneers are a great way to enhance the look of your teeth. These are custom shells that fit over the front of your teeth to give them the shape and color you design. Veneers can help treat the following appearance issues you might face with your teeth.
Teeth are designed to sustain regular pressure. Using porcelain, we can simulate the same look and function of your natural teeth when you need a crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that goes over your natural tooth to completely encase it all the way to the gum line.
Now that you’ve read about both porcelain veneers and crowns, you might be wondering what the difference between the two is. While both restorative dental services help make your teeth beautiful and functional, they do serve different purposes.
If your gums lie too low or high on your teeth, your dentist might recommend cosmetic gum treatments. This is a process that contours and shapes your gums to improve their appearance and remove extra tissue that covers your teeth. Sometimes, dentists recommend this treatment to help a crown fit better if you have extra gum tissue.
