COSMETIC DENTISTRY
This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed.  The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.


We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, invisalign, and bonding.


WHITENING: This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Professional whitening can be accomplished in approximately one hour at our office or at your home using custom trays and whitening solution one hour per day for up to two weeks. Results of both techniques are equal, however, we typically reccomend home whitening because it is more cost effective, custom trays from home whitening are reusable in the future, and one has the ability to start/stop the procedure as needed if sensitivity exists.

VENEERS: A veneer is a ceramic restoration placed on your tooth that cannot stain. They are typically used to either improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damaged surface. We reccomend prepped porcelain veneers so that the cosmetic result is ideal and looks realistic.

INVISALIGN: Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.

BONDING: Dental bonding is a procedure in a which a resin material is adhered (bonded) to a tooth in order to repair fractures, close gaps, and change the color, shape, or size of a tooth. The resin's color is made to blend with the natural color of your surrounding teeth.
