Over time, your teeth may start to change in color from their natural white to yellow or grey. This is totally normal, and can be caused by anything from aging to stains from foods like coffee or tea and even by certain medications. However, if you want to restore your teeth to their former glory, we offer several whitening options to help! We perform powerful, effective in-office whitening treatments that can produce dramatic results after a single one-hour session, and also provide high-quality at-home whitening kits for patients who would prefer that option.
If you want to dramatically improve the overall appearance of your smile, we typically turn to veneers as our first option. Veneers are a popular option in cosmetic dentistry — made from thin, durable porcelain, they are essentially a customizable facade that covers the front of an existing tooth, allowing you to choose the shape, size, and shade of the tooth. Think your teeth are too small? Veneers can change that. Want to hide stains that won’t come out during a whitening treatment? Veneers can fix that too! Durable and long-lasting, veneers are cemented onto your existing tooth structure and typically remain effective for a decade or more before they need to be replaced.
Lumineers are a specific type of ultra-thin porcelain veneer that comes with the major advantage of not requiring us to remove any existing tooth structure in order to put them in place. To place regular veneers, we have to alter your natural tooth structure, but with Lumineers, we don’t! However, this also means that Lumineers are not effective in all cases, as some situations may require a sturdier, full-thickness veneer. Where they are appropriate, though, Lumineers can help transform your smile with minimal impact on your mouth and may last for a decade or more with proper care.
Bonding is a great way to correct minor cosmetic flaws like cracks or chips in your teeth in minimal time and at a low cost. Using the same dental composite material that you may remember from your last cavity filling, we can gently repair or cover small imperfections in your teeth — smoothly blending the tooth-colored composite in with your natural tooth structure so that no one can tell the difference. Bonding can be completed in a single visit, and the results can last for years!
If you or your child want braces to help straighten your teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile, we can help! Our team would be delighted to consult with you on your orthodontic needs and help you make a decision on what’s best for your particular case — including options like traditional metal braces (highly effective) or Invisalign (more discreet). You’ll be amazed at what we can achieve!
