Cosmetic Dentistry :
It’s a known fact that people who smile more often throughout the day are happier overall. Taking that one step further, fifteen minutes of hardy laughter each day can improve your overall health. So go ahead, smile and laugh today!
If you’re not happy with your smile, we can help with that. Enhancing your smile through cosmetic dentistry can be as simple as whitening your teeth or as involved as placing implants. Whatever level of service required to give you the smile of your dreams, our office is qualified and ready to turn those dreams into reality.
Today’s top cosmetic dental treatment options include:
TEETH WHITENING: One of the most commonly prescribed cosmetic dental procedures. Although there are many whitening options available, we have found The Zoom Professional Teeth Whitening treatment to be the most effective treatment on the market. The Zoom Professional Teeth Whitening treatment consists of a gentle hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel activated by a special, patented light operating in the gentle “blue spectrum”. The gel and light were both developed by Philips Health Care Company and are available exclusively at this office. Unlike traditional bleaching methods, with Zoom, the entire teeth whitening process is done in our office, allowing you to not have to worry about the hassle of take home methods. All you have to do is sit back and relax while we do the rest.
BONDING: Do you have chipped or cracked teeth that stand out when you smile? Do you have old fillings on your front teeth that have discolored throughout the years from coffee, tea or soda? Bonding is a procedure using enamel like material to match, blend and sculpt onto your existing tooth to give it a natural look. Once it is placed, it is hardened by a special light and polished for an ideal smile.
IMPLANTS: Are there missing teeth in your mouth? Are you wearing a partial denture or a full denture that just never fit right or moves around so you can’t chew properly? You may be eligible for dental implants. Made of titanium, dental implants are a stronger, more attractive option for replacing missing or lost teeth. The dental implant is like an anchor that is gently placed into your jaw. A life-like ceramic restoration is then built around it and matched to the original tooth color. Based on your health concerns and your needs, you may be an eligible candidate for this procedure.
VENEERS: Are your teeth so discolored that whitening did not respond well? Do your teeth look crooked to you? Veneering is an increasingly popular procedure that consists of ultra thin ceramic material being placed over your teeth resulting in an extreme smile makeover!
