Patients who have numerous smile flaws they want to repair quickly can completely transform their smiles with this one quick, comfortable treatment. Completed over the course of two appointments, veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain fused to the front facing surfaces of the teeth that can conceal any number of cosmetic flaws. We custom craft these veneers using the highest quality materials in order to deliver the flawless smile patients desire.
Dental crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays are all available in numerous materials including gold, porcelain bonded to metal, zirconia, and all-ceramic. Each of these materials has unique benefits and drawbacks associated with them.
For those patients who want a completely natural appearance following a restorative treatment or those who have allergies to metal, all-ceramic restorations may be the best solution. They are crafted using the highest quality ceramics in a trusted dental lab so patients always receive the best possible results.
Tooth-Colored Fillings & Bonding
For minor decay or dental damage, we will likely use a composite resin filling material to repair the lost tooth structure and strength. This material allows us to provide a quick, comfortable, and natural-looking restoration in just one short appointment. We can also use the tooth-colored resin to conceal or correct purely cosmetic flaws. For many patients, this treatment is a viable alternative to more advanced porcelain veneers or dental crowns used in cosmetic smile makeover plans.
If patients have a few teeth that are negatively impacting their smile due to staining or a less than ideal shape, we may recommend cosmetic improvement using a metal-free dental crown. These all-ceramic crowns are custom crafted to fit seamlessly over the top of the flawed tooth. We may also recommend metal-free restorations to safely and effectively treat patients who have allergies or sensitivities to metal. Whatever the reason, we’ll always use metal-free restorations crafted from the highest quality ceramic and zirconia materials.
If you’re interested in achieving a brighter smile, professional teeth whitening with ZOOM or KOR deep bleaching may be the best option. We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions that can deliver results up to ten shades brighter. Unlike over the counter whitening kits that promise dramatic results they can’t deliver; our professional whitening products are able to provide predictable teeth whitening results for patients with both surface level and deep-set staining.
Gum Recontouring & Crown Lengthening
In some cases, the cosmetic problems patients experience aren’t caused by the teeth at all. Instead, a too large or uneven gum line can make the smile look stubby or gummy. For these patients, we may recommend gum recontouring. During this simple treatment, we’ll remove excessive soft tissue and reshape the gums to create a more beautiful smile. We can also perform a similar treatment called crown lengthening when patients need to expose more tooth structure to support a restoration like a dental crown.
