Cosmetic Care Practice
Interested in a smile makeover or just want to replace one or a few discolored teeth? We can do it all!
We will set up a smile analysis appointment with you to take a full series of portrait photos and photos of your teeth and gums. Molds of your teeth will be made so that we can analyze your teeth, jaws and bite. We can then digitally design your smile with your input so you can see a “mock up” of what your future smile will look like. We work with hand-picked cosmetic dental labs and master ceramists to help design your best looking smile.
We highly recommend a smile design appointment to discuss your cosmetic dentistry needs in depth, so you can be fully informed of your options.
We offer everything from cosmetic bonding, veneers, crowns, teeth whitening and clear aligners (Invisalign) to make your smile look the way you want it to!
Cosmetic bonding is the least invasive way to change the shape, size and color of your teeth without removing tooth structure and most of the time this can be achieved comfortably without any anesthesia. Cosmetic bonding appointments are done chairside and freehand by the doctor and provide great aesthetic result, especially for small chips and fractures. Cosmetic bonding typically takes one appointment and is a a cost effective way to update your smile.
Veneers are a great option to recreate the natural look of teeth using strong and resilient materials. They can be used to alter the shape, size and color of your teeth, and can even close gaps between teeth for those who don’t want braces.
Veneers are permanently cemented on after a very thin layer of enamel is removed. Our veneers are lab-fabricated by master ceramists and cosmetic dental labs around the nation. We hand-pick based on your smile and preferences.
For teeth with very large fillings, teeth that have been ground away (from habits such has bruxism) or teeth that are severely discolored especially after root canal treatment, crowns are recommended to cover your entire tooth for strength and longevity. For front teeth, we use the most natural looking lab-fabricated dental crowns made of porcelain or zirconia, which are also made by master ceramists and cosmetic dental labs that we are comfortable working with.
TEETH WHITENING (BLEACHING)
We offer two types of teeth whitening for natural teeth – professional in-office whitening, and at-home whitening using custom trays.
With the at-home whitening trays, we will make custom trays for you to put whitening solution in. You wear the trays for 5-10 sessions or until you see results, and you can keep the trays to touch-up your whiter, brighter smile as little or as often as you’d like.
For faster, more noticeable results, we recommend in-office whitening – which only takes about one hour in the Clinic. We will apply a gel that whitens your teeth from the inside out and removes stains effectively.
Before you are ready to whiten your teeth, we highly recommend that you have a professional dental cleaning in our Clinic first and use sensitive toothpaste for one to two weeks before and after whitening.
