Are You Embarrassed by Your Smile?

In a world where everyone wants a perfect smile, broken, chipped, discolored, crooked, or missing teeth can be embarrassing. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can help.  There are a variety of tools and techniques at our disposal to give you the smile you long to have. Here are a few of the cosmetic procedures we offer:

Same-Day Crowns

Crowns are excellent solutions for protecting weak teeth, restoring teeth after a root canal, covering teeth that have large fillings or are severely stained, and restoring broken or worn teeth. We offer high-quality porcelain crowns made right here in our office with a CEREC machine. They fit perfectly, look great, and last for many years. Plus, because we make crowns in house, you’ll get your new crown the same day!
During your appointment, we’ll take X-rays to check the health of your tooth. If there’s significant decay, we’ll need to perform a root canal before applying your crown. We’ll use anesthesia to numb the area so you don’t feel any pain. Then, we’ll shape your tooth to make room for the crown.

Once your tooth is ready, we’ll use a video camera to scan your teeth, and a computer design will be generated. Next, we’ll mill your crown and try it on to ensure it fits properly. Then, we’ll polish it and do a final fire in our porcelain oven if needed. Finally, we’ll bond the crown into place, and you’re done! Remember, you still need to brush and floss, just as you would with your original teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Discolored teeth can be a source of embarrassment, but you shouldn’t have to hide your smile. Many factors contribute to discoloration, including genetics, age, certain foods and drinks, tobacco use, and even medicines like antibiotics. If you have dull, stained, or discolored teeth, we can help.

Teeth whitening is a fast, simple, and effective way to brighten your smile, but we’ll need to check your teeth and gums first to make sure they’re healthy. Then, we’ll discuss your whitening options and find a treatment that works for you. Many patients love the results they get with our Glo Whitening program!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a long-lasting solution to improve the appearance of your teeth. They can improve the shape of your teeth, close gaps, fix chipped or broken teeth, and cover stains. Plus, porcelain veneers both look like natural teeth and have similar strength and flexibility.

Your teeth must be healthy enough for porcelain veneers, so we’ll need to perform an exam first. If we determine that you are a good candidate, we’ll custom-make veneers to fit over your teeth.

Porcelain veneers can drastically and instantly improve the appearance of your teeth, making them an attractive option. Furthermore, they are long-lasting and resist stains, so you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.

Dental Bridges

If you have missing teeth, it’s important to have them replaced for your health, as well as the appearance of your smile. Without intervention, your remaining teeth will shift, possibly leading to a misaligned bite, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and other problems that make eating and speaking difficult. Dental bridges are a simple solution.

We’ll create durable custom bridges that match your natural teeth to give you confidence and prevent your teeth from shifting. Crowns will be placed over a neighboring tooth or teeth to be used as anchors for your bridge. With proper care, your bridge should last for years.
