Don’t be misled by the clever marketing tactics of over-the counter whitening agents. By using the most current and most successful whitening agents and techniques available, years of stains from foods, beverages, and smoking can be removed. In addition, teeth stained by medication can often be lightened.
This is a general term that encompasses much of what a cosmetic dentist does.
From placing tooth-colored restorations (fillings) to closing gaps and repairing chipped teeth to cementing crowns, bridges, and veneers with a water-tight seal, bonding is so much of what we do to help you achieve your ultimate smile.
No longer do patients have to settle with the unsightly black line or graying of the gum around a crown. Porcelain avoids the use of corrosive non-precious metals that can cause this. If your particular situation requires the use of a metal base for your porcelain crown, know that we use only the highest quality of precious metals when making your crown.
An overlay of porcelain, or veneer, is a beautiful way to correct misalignment of teeth or an unaesthetic tooth shape in a gentle, conservative way. The placement of veneers can often “straighten teeth” without braces.
No smile can be “ultimate” with missing teeth and gaps. Teeth can be replaced with partials, bridges, or implants. Implants, by far, are the most natural way to replace missing teeth and achieve the good support needed for any cosmetic dental work.
Sometimes slight discrepancies in the length, width, or shape of your teeth exist. Often by the gentle polishing and reshaping of teeth, a more even and uniform appearance of your smile can be achieved.
